It's Started

So...an American robotics company has challenged a Japanese robotics company to...

...a mecha fight. (The article here calls them robots, but they're piloted, so they're mechas).

Who else really wants this to happen? I mean, we have small robot fights now, so we need mecha fights.

The American machine has two guns, one of which is a paintball gun and the other is designed to fire soft projectiles. Who knows how they'll alter it for the actual duel.

Mecha fighting leagues are a sci-fi staple and now it seems they might become reality. Like, well, so much else in science fiction.
