  • [RUMOR] Giant Robot Fight in 2016 to be broadcast by NBCUniversal

    So I was in Akiba last weekend with some of my friends, and I just -finally- caught up to this whole thing.

    So last July an American company called Megabots, Inc. made a publicity video calling out Suidobashi to a giant robot fight.


    And Suidobashi was like "lol okay"


    and that was that for a while.

    But now, after a job posting from NBCUniversal on jobtalk.jp last September requesting additional marketing personnel that "must be able to travel and work in unorthodox environments" and "familiarity with mecha sci-fi ex. Gundam, Mechwarrior is an advantage" popped up, people are getting hyped. Suidobashi Heavy Industries has confirmed that they have been in contact with NBCUniversal, but have refused to say what it was about. Afaik, no word from Megabots, Inc. yet.

    So as it stands... I'm buying tickets if this ever happens.

    Wow, i herd about that "challenge" awhile ago but kinda figured nothing would ever come of it. Wonder what kind of rules they might have(no lazors, no projectiles, no incendaries, etc...) I'd like to see a nice melee fight between 2 robots(like battlebots was) but on a large scale.

    They could make it interesting too and add allllll kinds of modifiers to it to maybe make it cooler too and really make the engineers think about how they design it. Imagine if they ended up saying it can't have any wheels... or must only have 2 "legs" to locomote. I'd give extra points if either one if painted like Ironman too...

    Oh jeeze... I just got a nerd boner in my mind... i'll go back to the corner now.

          I keep hoping that this leads to something like a sports league of fighting robots.

                I watched it on Twitch, it was both disappointing, and a waste of time. I was so looking forward to this and was left wanting.
