Last week, some American giant robot-making guys challenged some Japanese giant robot-making guys to a giant robot duel. (See the original challenge video here.) Team Japan has accepted the challenge.

In his response video, Suidobashi Heavy Industry founder Kogoro Kurata says "Come on guys, make it cooler. Just building something huge and sticking guns on it... It's ... super American."

The battle has been vaguely scheduled for "a year from now." We're hoping the engineers get a little more specific.
