THE USA VS JAPAN GIANT ROBOT DUEL
"Finally, after millennia of bullshit agriculture and metallurgy and revolutions industrial, political, cultural, whatever, shit’s finally getting good."
We Challenged Japan to a Duel.
In the summer of 2015, MegaBots, inc. completed construction of the USA's first giant piloted mech. The Mk. II MegaBot is a 15-foot tall, 12,000lb robot capable of hurling 3lb projectiles at speeds of over 130 MPH.
Upon completion of the Mk. II, MegaBots challenged the only other known giant piloted robot in the world to a duel. A 9,000lb robot known as KURATAS created by a group in Japan known as Suidobashi Heavy Industries.
Suidobashi Heavy Industries agreed to MegaBots' challenge under the conditions that the fight includes melee combat.
"Just building something huge and sticking guns on it. It's Super American ... If we're going to win this, I want to punch them to scrap and knock them down to do it."
- Kogoro Kurata
MegaBots didn't back down.
We Crowdfunded the First Ever Giant Mech Battle.
MegaBots took to Kickstarter to crowdfund the upgrades to the American robot. Raising over $500,000, the campaign will allow the MegaBot Mk. II to not only be able to swing punches, but to roll with them too.
Get ready to witness the most incredible sports entertainment that the world has ever seen: Nation-on-nation robot combat. Multi-ton behemoths will swing punches, tearing steel armor panels off each other until one mech is left standing, while the opponent is left a heap of scrap metal.
Welcome to the future of sports.
In October 2017, History Was Made.
