A western movie about giant robots must feel right at home in the country that created the genre. Jaeger and the rest of the Pacific Rim: Uprising mecha joined forces with one of Japan’s most famous robots, Mazinger Z, in a special promotional illustration! Mazinger Z released its latest movie, Infinity, last January.
The visual features Jaeger and Mazinger Z in the front, and in the background all the robots from Pacific Rim and a few highlights from Go Nagai’s history, UFO Robot Grendizer and the three Getter Machines from Getter Robo.
This is not the first collaboration struck by the robot movie. Earlier this month, the official Twitter account posted two illustrations, one with the King of Monsters, Godzilla, and one by robot anime director/designer Masami Obari.
Pacific Rim: Uprising, the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 Robot vs Kaiju movie Pacific Rim, was released in Japan on 13 April.
