It’s not confirmed if the Monkey King will enter the match in August 2017. And the location of the US-Japan duel still remains a secret.
The U.S. and Japan teams have since spent two years fortifying and weaponizing their robots, and now the duel will finally happen. Well, technically, it’s already happened: It appears that showing the fight live wasn’t feasible (there would be too much downtime for repairs and resets), so over the course of several days the robots battled each other at an old warehouse in Japan, with cameras rolling to capture all the action.
Tonight the edited footage will be streamed on Twitch at 7 p.m. PT, and posted on YouTube and Facebook immediately after. You can watch a teaser below:
