It’s April 1, so we all know what that means: pranks, jokes, and…just things that aren’t real. For 2020, SEGA Japan has decided to create a brand new character: Tribot, a female counterpart to Orbot and Cubot.
According to the tweet, Tribot is a “universal support robot” who “gets crazy when she gets angry.” There is also some mention of her having “low blood pressure,” which is odd given she’s a robot, and presumably doesn’t have any blood. The tweet also seems to imply it’s a prank call from Rouge.
Check out a (rough) translation of the tweet and Tribot’s concept art below:
Emergency call from Rouge!
It’s hard! Eggman has completed the universal support robot “Tribot”!
… It’s a girl and low blood pressure, but she’s crazy when she gets angry.
What? Is it a lie …? I don’t know. Uhfu ♪ [Rouge] #AprilFools
It’s a good design. I wouldn’t be surprised if fans start demanding this become an official character!
