So, Nintendo has made its mark on fighters with Super Smash Bros., Sony is trying to steal their lightning with Playstation All-Stars, so I think that it's high time Sega make their own cross-over fighter, especially considering that, as the racing games have shown, they have an extremely rich library of games, characters, and settings to choose from.
The gameplay doesn't even have to necessarily mimic Super Smash Bros. It could be a three-dimensional fighter like the games developed by CyberConnect2 for Naruto, .hack//,, and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
Anywho, onto speculation of characters and stages.
Characters - Sonic All-Star: Super Sonic Blast (goes super, creates an explosion that harms all opponents)
Tails All-Star: Cyclone Deploy (summons the Cyclone mech from SA2 for a short while)
Knuckles All-Star: Emerald Duster (Powerful linear punch)
Amy All-Star: Piko-Piko Meteor (Hammer grows enormous and flattens enemies in front of her)
Shadow All-Star: Chaos Control (All opponents are temporarily slowed down)
Dr. Eggman All-Star: Egg Cannon (Giant laser attack)
Gillius Thunderhead (Golden Axe) All-Star: Bizzarian Steed (summons a purple lizard to ride upon and attack with)
Joe Musashi (Shinobi) All-Star: Fire Jutsu (uses the fire jutsu from the Shinobi games to incinerate nearby enemies)
Beat (Jet Set Radio) All-Star: Graffiti Soul (temporarily becomes faster and stronger)
Alis Landale (Phantasy Star) All-Star: Phantasy Union (combination attack with Odin, Lutz, and Myau)
Shou (Burning Rangers) All-Star: Burning Blast-off (Fire engulfs the arena)
Jack Cayman (Madworld/Anarchy Reigns) All-Star: Gator Bite (Thrusts chainsaw-arm forward)
Duke (E-SWAT) All-Star: Siege Cannon (police officers rain cannon fire upon the arena, ala the smart-bomb from Streets of Rage)
Harrier (Space Harrier) All-Star: Space Dragon (summons the dragon from the bonus rounds of Space Harrier to ride upon)
Stages - Sonic: Green Hill, Chemical Plant, Sky Sanctuary, Death Egg Shinobi: Orient Castle Golden Axe: The Wilderness Phantasy Star: Planet Motavia Space Harrier: Fantasy Zone Jet Set Radio: Benten-cho Yakuza: Kamuracho
Possible bosses - Mother Brain (Phantasy Star 2) Mr. X (Streets of Rage) Metal Sonic
I'd probably cut back on the Sonic characters, 3 representatives is enough IMO. Sonic/Knuckles/Shadow would be good enough. Tails could be used in one of Sonic's attacks like coming in to provide air support or something, Eggman/Robotnik should be a boss or at least a mini boss and Amy's hammer could be used as temporary item drop. --- Big Apple, 3 A.M. http://i.imgur.com/LPi7w.gif

I'd deffo have Sonic, Tails and Knuckles...maybe Eggman and 1 other. (Think Mario, Luigi, Toad, Bowser) --- I started the amazing QSTP in 7 seconds, thus you must bow down to me! http://hubpages.com/profile/S.Graveson
I remember listening to interviews while this game was coming out, that they really do want to make a Smash style game, though more like Playstation All Stars. The biggest issue is figuring out the heights of each character, so they were thinking maybe a mace battle game. --- It was great seeing Aerith run around Times Square and Pedigree opponents in the train station. - Strife2 If love can hurt, then surely hate can save. - Altena
