US restaurant Dave & Buster's is set to unveil an oversized take on Mattel’s classic Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots game for diners to enjoy.

Replacing the original six-inch models with huge versions that stand at five-feet high, the new game will make its debut December 26th, and won’t be available anywhere else.

"Dave & Buster's always aims to provide exciting new experiences to its guests, and our exclusive new take on Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots brings a massive dose of competitive arcade fun," said Kevin Bachus, SVP of entertainment at Dave & Buster's.

"The game has been a favourite for more than 50 years, and we jumped at the opportunity to put our own giant stamp on a classic."

Called Kamigami, the concept is the brainchild of two UC Berkeley PhD graduates who, through the new launch, allow kids to fold and snap flat sheets of durable plastic together to create different kinds of robotic praying mantises, scorpions and more.
