About MegaBots:

MegaBots, Inc., uses cutting-edge robotics technology to create the giant piloted fighting robots of science fiction, videogames and movies. These robots fight in epic-scale arena combat the likes of which the world has never seen before.

MegaBots are 15-foot-tall, internally piloted humanoid robots that fire cannonball-sized paintballs at each other at speeds of over 120 miles per hour. As the robots battle, armor panels crack and break off, smoke and sparks pour out of the robots, limbs eventually fall off, and robots fall to the ground until only one is left standing.

The giant robots from science fiction are coming.

Japan’s Suidobashi Heavy Industry, a company that has developed a giant robot, has accepted a challenge from American-based giant robot team MegaBots to engage in a full-on fight. The acceptance was posted to YouTube by the Suidobashi team and included its fair share of fighting words.

Kurata’s playful comments came after MegaBots on July 2 issued a challenge to Suidobashi to engage in a real-life giant robot battle. The MegaBots pugilist is called Mark 2, weighs six tons, and is piloted by a team of two. The Mark 2 fires three-pound paint cannonballs up to 100 miles per hour.

The Suidobashi Kuratas weighs 4.5 tons, making it a bit more agile. However, it comes with a pair of Gatling guns, coupled with an advanced targeting system and heads-up display.
