Minirobot’s Metal Fighter Gets Gaming Gig

First there was MechaTraX’s Robo Catcher; a gachapon game where you take control of a bipedal robot to pick up, carry, and toss prizes into an awaiting dispenser.  The Japanese version of the classic UFO catcher now has some competition from South Korea’s Minirobot – the makers of the Robonova (Robozak) hobby kits.  Their new hobby kit, Metal Fighter, is taking up residence inside a similar cabinet where it can be used by coordinated players to collect prizes.  The game will go on sale next month, and Minirobot expects it will be a popular attraction at theme parks, movie theaters, and arcades.  Watch Robo Catcher being played in the following video:

  • I have a great fun of looking at robot wars or robot football. Robot sport is the future for promoting that great idea,

  • The ROBOCATCHER is developed and sold by MechaTraX, not Robot Labs. So, this Minirobot’s Metal Fighter is only copy of our machine.
    The web site of MechaTraX is “http://www.mechatrax.com/”and the ROBOCATHCER’s is “http://robocather.jp/”.
