Update: The results are in! It looks as though Ivy is the most popular character of Soulcalibur. I can think of at least two reasons why that might be...

Hit the jump below to check out the results!

Earlier: Without a doubt, one of the most important aspects of a classic fighting game series is its roster. People need a character that they can properly identify themselves with.

It isn't just about the play styles of these fighters. We saw a scenario with Soulcalibur 5 where, even though there were characters that took up the play styles of older fighters, people wanted the personalities of their favorites back.

So far, for Soulcalibur 6 we've only seen the confirmation of Sophita and Mitsurugi. As a result of this, we see that Soulcalibur will be returning to its roots somewhat.

Which characters will we be seeing? Who is everybody hoping for? There's definitely an expansive number of options to choose from considering that the series started back in 1998 -- that's nearly 20 years at this point.

I've created a poll that will allow everyone to vote for their favorites. Even though it is unlikely we'll see them return, I've also included the many guest combatants we've seen over the years.

After the jump, you can vote in the poll. Since there are so many choices to choose from, you'll be allowed to vote up to twelve times.
