Suidobashi Heavy Industry, the makers of fighting robot Kuratas did not hesitate in slamming down the rival robot and agreed to the colossal challenge in a response video.
“Yeah. I will fight. Absolutely,” declared the firm’s chief Kogoro Kurata, “But you know, we really need a melee combat. If we are going to win this, I want to punch them to scrap and knock them down to do it.”
The titanic armored robots are approximately 4 meters tall. While Mark II weighs 5400 kg, has tank-liked tracks and is activated by a team of two; Kuratas weighs 5000 kg, two arms and a one person cockpit.
Mark II features guns that can hurl giant paint balls at more than 100 miles per hour while Kuratas is developed for both melee and BB projectile combat.
Although the actual match will take place next year, robot geeks can not wait for the ultimate robotic knockdown of the century.
Apparently, this U.S.A vs Japan machine match will surpass other robot competitions like RoboCup.
While Japan claims itself to be the real cultivators of the giant robot culture, let’s see if it snatches away the heavyweight robot title or is crushed by the tech expertise of U.S.A.
