Suidobashi Heavy Industry Accepted the Challenge
One year from now, as the two parties agreed, the first giant robot battle will be happening.
The question is: Are they going to live up to the expectations?
Experts are saying that fans shouldn’t expect to see a Hollywood type of fight given today’s technology and the lack of budget. The battle, as experts say, wouldn’t even last a minute because robots of this age are very complex that one single alteration or damage on its system can easily make it inoperable.
Personally, I don’t care if the actual fight is going to be boring or not. Just the fact that two giant robots are going in to an arena to fight is an idea fascinating enough for me.
So yeah, maybe it would help if we don’t expect too much from it. It’s just the first anyway, but who knows?
