Japan accepts challenge to glorious giant-robot battle

The mecha duel is on!

Mere days after being challenged by U.S.-based MegaBots to a showdown between giant piloted fighting robots, Japan's Suidobashi Heavy Industry has accepted, and then promptly raised the stakes.

"We can't let another country win this," Suidobashi founder Kogoro Kurata says in his response video (after talking a bit of smack, naturally). "Giant robots are Japanese culture. Yeah, I'll fight. Absolutely."

However, Kurata, whose 13-foot-tall Kuratas robot fires BBs at 6,000 rounds per minute from twin Gatling guns, has one condition: that the battle be melee combat. "If we're going to win this," he says, "I want to punch them to scrap, and knock them down to do it."

Kurata seems awfully confident his giant robot can best the MegaBot Mark II. MegaBots, the ball is in your court.
