The giant robot fight is finally in sight.

MegaBots announced that the Giant Robot Duel has been confirmed and scheduled to take place in 2017. MegaBots and Japanese Suidobashi have been under NDA until the duel was fully arranged, which is why neither side made announcements about it.

The original Duel venue fell through, which caused a significant scheduling delay since the original MegaBots Duel challenge announcement As a result of this earlier setback, the final giant robot fight location is being kept a secret to prevent any further potential delays.

MegaBots and Suidobashi are putting on the fight together, and are bringing the fight to fans directly by posting the video to their YouTube and Facebook channels.

The MegaBots Mk.III has only been seen in pieces thus far. The Mk.III upper body can be seen picking up a car here, and a previous video showed MegaBots team members joyriding on the Mk.III tank tread base. An upcoming video will unveil the final assembled robot.

The public will have a chance to see the completed Mk.III MegaBot live in the San Francisco Bay Area in May before it goes to the Duel. We will be revealing that debut information in another announcement soon.

Fans can expect to learn more about the Duel, the robots that are fighting in it, and the teams as more information becomes public in the next few months.

There are no details yet about Suidobashi Heavy Industry or the KURATAS robot. MegaBots is sharing updates of the construction of MegaBots Mk.III, but the Japanese opponent has been quite about their efforts.
