Chinese Giant Robot Dawei Challenges America's MegaBots and Japan's Kuratas

There is a new contender entering the giant robot fight arena.

American startup MegaBots made a big splash two years ago challenging a Japanese robot maker to a giant robot duel. A lot has happened since then. MegaBots raised millions of Dollars to build a giant robot from scratch that will be unveiled next month. The duel between the Japanese Kuratas robot and MegaBots' MK. III is scheduled to happen somewhen this year.

Now a Chinese robot maker has unveiled a giant fighting robot. The Dawei looks like straight out of an anime. The team behind the Dawei robot is challenging both Megabots and Suidobashi Heavy Industry to a robot fight. According to Chinese news site people, the Dawei robot can fight both robots at the same time. The development of the Chinese giant robot has supposedly only taken 6 months. This appears a bit short for something that can take on MegaBots' new robot.

Update: We just received a brief statement of Gui Calavanti, Co-Founder and CEO of MegaBots. "We will not be responding to any additional challenges until after the fight with Suidobashi in August of 2017," he said in an email to I4U News.

The Chinese new comer has to wait. The duel between USA and Japan goes down first as planned before any other fights take place.

The MegaBots team is right now in China with their MK. II robot. The original MegaBots robot will be appearing at the G-Festival in Beijing.

MegaBots won earlier this month a startup competition in Silicon Valley. Megabots idea of creating a giant robot fight league won approval from Silicon Valley investors. Now with China potentially coming in, the league is off to a good start.

While MegaBots is already doing a lot of PR work and marketing, its Japanese contender revealed nothing about the state of Kuratas. Suidobashi Heavy Industry keeps its moves secret.
