As part of the promotional activities surrounding the cinematic release of Terminator Genisys in Japan, it has been revealed that Arnold Schwarzenegger will meet with Yo-kai Watch‘s Robonyan.
The character is the robotic version of the Nintendo 3DS exclusive’s feline-inspired mascot Jibanyan. In perhaps helping to explain the collaboration more, the reason that Arnie will meet the character at the movie premiere is because, as a tribute to his Terminator T-800 portrayal, Robonyan’s signature line is “I’LL BE BACK.”
“The Terminator T-800, who comes to protect [those in need] no matter what trouble they’re in, is still my hero,” comments LEVEL-5 CEO and president Akihiro Hino. “I never would’ve thought that Robonyan would be able to meet Arnold Schwarzenegger. I think [Robonyan]’s also quite happy.”
Robonyan also shared his own thoughts on meeting Schwarzenegger, adding: “It’s an honour to be invited to the sunny stage. If it turns into a fight, I won’t lose, but instead I think I’ll try to negotiate a part in a Hollywood movie or something. See you at the red carpet! I’LL BE BACK!”
Terminator Genisys will premiere in Japan on July 1st, with a limited premiere set for July 6th which will be followed by a countrywide release on July 10th.
