Are you ready for the world's first giant robot fight? We've been waiting for a date for the MegaBots vs. Suidobashi duel, and now it's finally here. The fight will take place on October 17th, 2017 at 10:00 PM ET and it will be streamed worldwide on Twitch. 

MegaBots challenged Suidobashi Heavy Industry to a battle way back in June 2015, and the Japanese company accepted roughly a week later. Since then, it’s been more than two years of anticipation and false starts, including a close call back in August, due to what the company called “logistical issues.”

MegaBots’ Eagle Prime is a 6 meters tall robot, weighing in at 12 tons. Suidobashi’s Kuratas, meanwhile, is a relative welterweight, at 4 meters and 6.5 tons. 

While this clash of titans promises to be entertaining, Megabots isn't planning for this to be a one-off event. Rather, they envision such robotic clashes as being a futuristic sport.
