I'll set you a challenge. Without any policing from the SUMO or SEGA crew, if you can all agree on three characters by the 1st of December and prove there is sufficient interest of at least 1000 unique people *per* character, I will present the result to SEGA. I can't promise anything will happen as a result, but since you're starting it...
Let's see if you can organise yourselves in the next few weeks to pull that off!
If you want to get in on the action and see what characters are getting a push, hit up the forum thread right here.
