Many of you might still be celebrating the fact that the U.S. has beaten Japan in the Women’s World Cup but now you have another match to look forward to, interestingly it doesn’t involve soccer players, this match will primarily be between giant robots. MegaBots Inc. from the U.S. had challenged Japan’s Suidobashi Heavy Industry to a giant robot duel, a challenge which the latter has now formally accepted. It’s on!
“Yeah, I’ll fight. Absolutely,” says Kogoro Kurata who is the founder and CEO of Suidobashi Heavy Industry, adding that “We can’t let another country win this. Giant robots are Japanese culture.”
MegaBots had presented a rather simple offer to Suidobashi, something along the lines of “we have a giant robot, you have a giant robot” lets pit them against each other and see what happens.
The original challenge from MegaBots suggested that the duel could take place a year from now, the response from Suidobashi doesn’t provide a confirmed date to, so we don’t really know for sure right now when this duel is going to take place.
We can only hope that Team USA and Team Japan sit together and figure out the logistics of this thing, because we’re not interested in any of that, we just want to see giant robots fight.
