S0L, better known as the classy gentleman Steve Lycett of Sumo Digital, has issued a proposition on Sega’s forums to Sega’s many fans. If everyone can come together and decide on three characters on their own, he will present the top three choices to Sega with the possibility that they may be included as future DLC.
Needless to say, the fans answered back.
However, there are a few rules to the challenge. For the characters to be eligible to even be considered, their respective petition must reach 1,000 signatures. Suspicion of duplicate entries will nullify the character entirely, so no cheating. That said, you can vote for as many characters as you want, but only once per character. The deadline for voting is Dec. 1.
Look down below for the whole list of characters who qualify. And yes, you should totally vote for Segata Sanshiro because who wouldn’t want to see a Japanese man in a gi riding a Sega Saturn controller and judo throwing those unfortunate enough to get in his way?
-Alis Landale (Phantasy Star)
-Opa-Opa (Fantasy Zone)
-Space Harrier (Space Harrier)
-Ristar (Ristar The Shooting Star)
-Bonanza Bros. (Bonanza Bros.)
-Axel Stone (Streets of Rage)
-Blaze Fielding (Streets of Rage)
-ToeJam & Earl (ToeJam & Earl)
-Sakura Shinguuji (Sakura Taisen)
-Chu Chus (ChuChu Rocket!)
-Ryo Hazuki (Shenmue)
-Arle Nadja (Puyo Puyo)
-Amitie (Puyo Puyo)
-Billy Hatcher (Billy Hatcher & The Giant Egg)
-Welkin (Valkyria Chronicles)
-Selvaria (Valkyria Chronicles)
-Phantom R (Rythm Thief)
-Ash (Hell Yeah!)

Thank you very much
