GIANT ROBOT DUEL: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED — Japan, America To Fight For Killer Robot Supremacy


That’s right! You read that title correctly. These two countries are going to have a battle with robots. This ain’t no movie crap. This isn’t going to be some sort of new cartoon that will do fine in the first season, then tank in the second. THIS IS AN ACTUAL ROBOT BATTLE.

MegaBots, an electronics organization, constructed America’s first fully-functional giant piloted robot called the MegaBot Mark II. This beautiful creature is equipped with guns that able to fire three-pound paint cannonballs at 100+MPH speeds, which is absolutely glorious.

Once MegaBots finished creating their mechanical masterpiece, they issued the challenge to Japan’s Kuratas.

Five days later, Japan sent this bamf response:

What made this really intense was the following quote from Kogoro Kurata, the man behind the Kuratas mecha suit:

“If we’re going to win this, I want to punch them to scrap, and knock them down to do it.”

And with that quote, both parties went like:


Kurata tells MegaBots to get the details for a date and a place, because that’s the boring crap nobody ever wants to do. Personally I am extremely pumped for this match-up. Sure, it’s going to happen in 2016, but nevertheless, A ROBOT MATCH IS GOING TO TAKE PLACE IN OUR LIFETIME. Now then, the next question we need to ask is where we can get tickets. Once more information is revealed, we will let you know.

Seriously, what a time to be alive.
