I can safely say I'm pretty much a roster-making fiend. I love it.

But I was never a part of Sega's heyday, so I have to look at their characters from the outside as an observer (mainly going by influence, reviews and sales). These characters I've listed could take part in any number of ways (a stage hazard, a boss fight, an Assist Trophy, Assist Character, maybe a Minion, or simply a story cameo).

Despite the above video, it doesn't have to be a Platform Fighter. You could have 3-D gameplay in large arenas, fusing Virtual On, Fighting Vipers and Virtua Fighter, for instance. Or you could just get Platinum to develop it (you know it would be well-made in their hands).

Here's the roster:

Sega Characters

Atlus Characters

I'd like to keep adding to this list over time. I don't know much of anything about Atlus either, so some help on getting a few if their characters would be great.

I think Chie from Persona 4 is pretty much required.

[up]I think she's a licensed character, owned by the Yamaha Corporation.

[up] Close, but no, she's owned by Crypton. Sega probably have some stake in Miku, tho, considering the Project Diva franchise and that they're behind most of her live concerts.
Estimated shipping time: 2-4 weeks.

I wouldn't mind having a SEGA/Atlus fighting game.

One thing I really like about SEGA purchasing index is that a couple of weeks ago SEGA said that Atlus has full access to any old SEGA I Ps that aren't being used currently.
@Alucard: Listing all their past franchises reminds me, it's sad that they completely abandoned 99.9% of those.

I want Tatsuya from Persona 2 in a fighting game so bad. Just give me that and I'm good.

I miss the regular Strategy RPG version of Shining Force.

I'd love to see somebody besides Max(or another Hero class). A Knight or even one of Mage variations would be really fun to play as.

[up]5x: I think that constitutes a Guest Fighter. And if we have those, then Earthworm Jim and Mario are the next most obvious choices.

[up]Any specific names you can name?

Arthur and Anri would not be too bad. Or even Tao.

Sega, apparently, has some ties to Valve, because they got some TF 2 characters in their racing game. Surely, they could get some of the Teufort Nine in their fighting game as well, as guest characters? Could you imagine?

Demi-Fiend as an SNK Boss. That's all I want to see.

Ultimate super move would be Gaea Rage which would hit full screen and do a ton of damage on hit and block, and can only be avoided if the player is knocked down.

[up][up]That was for the Steam version of Sonic and SEGA All-star racing.

SEGA did the same with practically each console. Banjo-Kazooie was in the 360 version.

[up]Supposedly they wanted to use Sackboy as the mascot to represent the PS3 and Vita versions, who already had his own kart racer coming out. Naturally, Sony didn't want to risk devouring those sales by including one of their key characters in a crossover.

Does that constitute Sackboy as a good console exclusive Guest Fighter in this hypothetical game?

  • Xbox One, Xbox 360 = Banjo & Kazooie (or maybe Fulgore or Jago)
  • Wii U, 3DS = Mario (repay the favor for SSBB and the next Smash installment)
  • PS4, PS3, Vita = Sackboy (for the above reasoning)
  • PC Version = Team Fortress 2 (again)

Sega might conceivably think of doing something like this in any Mascot Fighter they make.

[up]I know TW got represented in the PC version of All-Stars Racing Transformed, but would the game work better as an actual fighter, summoning units to battle, or an epic stage of some sort?

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
