The solitary man who devoted his soul to the way of games
Today, he comes again
He will punish those who do not play seriously
Their battered bodies will never forget!

Segata Sanshiro, Segata Sanshiro! Sega Saturn... shiro!

PS.I wonder if he will get sort of depress with Sega's current state?
PPS. Would be awesome if they have him break from another dimension fighting a guy with beard, Death Battle's staff would be proud.

What really amuses me is, they got Hiroshi Fujioka back to voice him.

Now I have to go listen to that song again. And if they can bring in Bruce Willis, they can bring in Japanese Chuck Norris too.

Segata Sanshiro was an advertising mascot for the Sega Saturn, a parody of Sugata Sanshiro, a legendary judo-ka from a Kurosawa movie. As you said, he was played by Hiroshi Fujioka, best known for playing Takeshi Hongo/Kamen Rider #1.

The ads are full of over-the-top insanity, including Sanshiro doing all of the following (and much more):
-Judo-throwing a man so hard he explodes
-Beating the crap out of an entire night club full of people because they weren't playing Sega Saturn
-Winning a soccer game (as coach) by picking up a benched player and throwing him in the way of a penalty kick; another ad has him stop a kick by Judo-throwing the goal (and earning a yellow card in the process)
-Training in the mountains by running with a gigantic Saturn on his back, and punching the buttons on a giant remote.
-Frolicking adorably in a field of cherry blossom trees with Sakura Shinguji of Sakura Taisen fame, and still being manly afterwards.
-In his final ad, around the launch of the Dreamcast, a rival company launches a missile at Sega HQ. Sanshiro jumps off the building, catches the missile, and diverts it into space where he dies a hero's death, delivering his legendary catchphrase "Sega Saturn shiro!" (Play Sega Saturn!)

So basically, Sanshiro earned the reputation of being Japan's answer to Chuck Norris (post-meme).

Well, rather surprisingly, Fire Emblem is joining the game with Chrom and Lucina as a pair unit. Likewise, Xenoblade's Fiora will be partnered up with KOS-MOS.

My personal WTF for Segata Sanshiro would be when he beat up a few poor kids for wanting to play baseball instead of Sega Saturn
