The long awaited fight between an American-made machine and a Japanese “mecha” finally has a date. This match will also be streamed live on the internet.

While MegaBots had been actively tweeting about its machine’s progress, Suibodashi Heavy Industries the Japanese side of the competition, has been somewhat quiet on its modifications.
