Reports coming in from Yokohama Marine Tower in Japan indicate that the downtown area of Yokohama city is under attack from Giant Robots which emerged from the ocean.
All attempts to communicate with these iron titans are greeted with the response “Submit to your New Overlords, puny humans”.
The Japanese Minister for Defence stated “Yikes! I’m outta here!” as he boarded a spaceship on course for the nearest inhabitable planet. He will be joined there by heads of state from across the world at which point a huge brawl is expected to break out over who gets the first go on the new Super Mario game.
