ROBO-ONE Robot Sword Match

The Kid Should See This

Robots Bluethunder? and Metallic Fighter face each other in this robot sword match for ROBO-ONE’s bipedal walking robot fighting games. Like fencing, their aim seems to be about scoring points rather than damaging their opponent. And each is built to get back up pretty quickly after it falls.
