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?
–Space Harrier (Space Harrier)
–Ristar (Ristar The Shooting Star)
–Bonanza Bros. (Bonanza Bros.)
–Blaze Fielding (Streets of Rage)
–ToeJam & Earl (ToeJam & Earl)
–Sakura Shinguuji (Sakura Taisen)
–Billy Hatcher (Billy Hatcher & The Giant Egg)
–Selvaria (Valkyria Chronicles)
–Hatsune Miku (Vocaloid/Project DIVA)
ToeJam & Earl + Segata Sanshiro are pretty much a given, so choice #3 is going to be the point of contention.
I’m narrowing my #3 choice down to a coin-flip; it’ll either be Bayonetta or Ash, purely as a boost to the promotion of their respective games.
Reading Comprehension failure: You’re allowed to vote for every character at least once. Guess that means I’ll be crossing my fingers for either Bayonetta or Ash to be in the final three.
EVERYONE! THERE IS ALSO BLAZE THE CAT!:https://www.change.org/petitions/sumo-digital-sega-include-blaze-the-cat-in-sonic-all-stars-racing-transformed
please please pleeeease put in Vectorman…… Ristar would be nice too…. and bayonetta.
The answer to me is simple:
Ristar, Chu chus and Segata Sanshiro!
Oh that would be AWESOME.
I really want to play as Nei from Phantasy Star II… but I don’t want to join so I can make a petition.
Already voted Alex from Streets of Rage, Arle from Puyo Puyo, and Vectorman <3
I want Ristar, Billy Hatcher, and Vectorman >:(
I’ve voted for Vectorman even before I knew exactly what it was for. :V But i’ve also voted for Axel and Segata Sanshiro. xD
Segata Sanshiro, Hatsune Miku and Chu Chu’s
I hope to god that they leave Billy Hatcher out of this one.
They actually had a test run of this some time ago. After several forum members rigged it so Silver won, the eventual winner was Fang the sniper.
Bean. I’d die from happiness if that happened.
Would prefer Nei from PSII over Alis from 1, honestly.
Vectorman is mandatory for everyone voting. If you don’t vote for Vectorman, then Transformed won’t have its greatest asset. With that, I would be very upset to not have the best character for the game.
Ristar’s my most wanted, they’ve already got a model for him so some of the work has already been done.
I was hoping for the Gunstar Heroes to show up on this poll though 🙁
You’re right, Segata Sanshiro is the only right answer.
I know Ristar is technically in it, but it should be…you know, more…technically. Yeah.
Vectorman, Ristar, and Opa-Opa!- or at the very least, Vectorman. how could you leave out the TRANSFORMING character in a TRANSFORMING game?
Vectorman. I’ve wanted him to be in this game since I first heard they were making ASRT. He’s a classic Sega character who transforms. He would fit perfectly in this game! Segata Sanshiro, Ristar, Toejam & Earl, and Ash would also be cool.
Screw Hatsune Miku: we don’t really need her in this game. If this were a music or voice oriented game, I could understand, but it’s not, it’s a racing game, and characters in racing games, especially in this racing game, need to have not only distinguishing characteristics but PERSONALITY. Last I checked, vocaloid dolls HAVE NO PERSONALITY. I would think she would be ruled out by common sense. Heaven knows how she managed to finagle all those votes for herself. Voter fraud?
I want Wonder Boy in the game!
This “complete list” seems to be missing a few characters. Anyeays, voted for Kiryu Kazuma
They were copied straight from the post on Sega’s site. If any were missed, then I blame it on slenderman.
Phantom R, Vectorman, and Alex from Streets of Rage!
My votes where to: Ristar, Axel Stone, Amitie, Segata Sanshiro and Hatsune Miku.
Segata Sanshiro must be voted in. Thi s is a duty, not a choice!
I picked Alis Landale, Ryo Hazuki and Arle Nadja
I Want SILVER THE HEDGEHOG PLZ
EVERYONE SHOULD VOTE ALIS LANDALE JUST SAYING
Why can’t Vanellope von Schweetz be in it? it gives Ralph someone to race with
Please Please Everyone Vote for
STREETS of RAGE fighters
Also Vote for GUNSTAR HEROES
Also vote for ASTAL from Sega Saturn
Joe Musashi & Hotsuma from Shinobi PS2
Thank You Very Very Much
Also please vote for Alys, Chaz & Rikka from Phantasy Star IV
Glad to see I’m not the only one giving Arle some love. I’d really love if she got enough votes just to give SEGA a wake up call even if she doesn’t make it in.
(I’ll still be sad if she doesn’t though lol)
Why is Donald Duck not on the list of characters? This popular character has starred in at least four Sega games and, like current vote leader Hatsune Miku, is not actually a Sega character but licensed from an external company. I would guess that if he were included in the poll he would win by a margin of about 8 million votes.
1. Miku belongs to Sega, Dolan doesn’t
2. Dolan is a rapist, Miku is a moe teenage girl
It’s like you hate good things or something.
I’m casting my votes for the obvious two: ToeJam/Earl and Segata Sanshiro.
My third and final vote will go to Vectorman. IMO always has been an underrated game in SEGA history.
Give me ChuChus or give me death.
What in Sam Hill is a Vocaloid doing on a Sega poll? I don’t see the connection. Anyway, I went for ToeJam/Earl, Vectorman, and Space Harrier.
SEGA of Japan made Project DIVA which is a music game like DDR where you press buttons in time with the music staring Miku Hatsune and several other Vocaloids. It’s Japan Exclusive.
Miku Flick and Miku Flick/02 are available on iOS for the American iTunes App Store. >_>
Oh no, Miku’s on there. We’re so f**ked. Go Ristar and Bayonetta. You two never got enough love.
Segata Sanshiro is my hero. I regularly play my Saturn in the fear that if I don’t, he will beat me up.
[and thus, I voted for him]
Vote for Bayonetta to be a DLC character in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed !!!!
This game has Mee Mee. That’s all I need.
Oh man, anybody else think we need John Mayer from Deep Fear up in here? No? That’s what I thought…
I’ll just have to settle for Segata Sanshiro and Vectorman.
Why can’t I vote for Ecco
HOW DARE THEY. ECCO IS BEST SASRT CANDIDATE.
Correct answers are Segata Sanshiro, ToeJam & Earl, and Vectorman.
I’m surprised no one mentioned Pulseman 🙁
There’s contention if he’s a Sega character or a GameFreak character (spoiler: this one), and GameFreak has moved on to being a Pokemon farm.
Come on guys we need to push for Sakura Shinguji from Sakura Taisen. A steam powered Koubu car would totally be a unique design for the game. Plus, she’s a Sega Saturn character that came from an awesome series which needs more exposure outside of Japan. Played and beaten all 4 Sakura Taisen games.
ToeJam and Earl are not at 1000 votes yet. I am very disappointed in this community for bringing Miku to 1500 and leaving them at 500.
SEGA Sataan, shiro!
So the winners so far are Ryo, Segata and Miku, with Vectorman, Ristar and Bayonetta closely tied for 4th. And by close I mean nowhere near Miku’s number of votes. And I voted for those in 4th. I’m going to go cry.
My inner weeaboo is happy to see so many votes for Miku. It’s great that Sega’s accepting community input!
