Mk.III Final Assembly Underway, Duel is On
MegaBots is excited to announce that the Giant Robot Duel has been confirmed and scheduled, and it has announced the date in its video here.
Here are some additional details we are releasing to the press, which are not included in the video or description of the video:
- MegaBots and Suidobashi have been under NDA until the duel was fully arranged, which is why neither side made announcements about it.
- The original Duel venue fell through, which caused a significant scheduling delay since the original MegaBots Duel challenge video.
- As a result of this earlier setback, the final Duel location is being kept a secret to prevent any further potential delays.
- MegaBots and Suidobashi are putting on the fight together, and are bringing the fight to fans directly by posting the video to their YouTube and Facebook channels.
- The Mk.III (the next-generation robot teased in the announcement) has only been seen in pieces thus far. The Mk.III upper body can be seen picking up a car here, and a previous video showed MegaBots team members joyriding on the Mk.III tank tread base. An upcoming video will unveil the final assembled robot.
- The public will have a chance to see the completed Mk.III MegaBot live in the San Francisco Bay Area in May before it goes to the Duel. We will be revealing that debut information in another announcement soon.
- Fans can expect to learn more about the Duel, the robots that are fighting in it, and the teams as more information becomes public in the next few months.
- We cannot provide further information about Suidobashi Heavy Industry or the KURATAS robot at this time. We encourage you to follow their social media to learn what they are willing to release as public information.
