You think it's easy to just poop out a new character design and turn it into the new face of your company? Think Sonic The Hedgehog was whipped up, red shoes and everything, with as much thought and deliberation as placing an order at KFC? But perhaps you do have the wherewithal to do one better than ye olde Service Games.

Yakuza producer Toshihiro Nagoshi will be hosting a new live web series called SEGA Raw on Japanese streaming site niconico. But the show needs a mascot, which is where the fans come in. Through June 9, 2013, you can submit an original character to this page, and the winning design will be used to promote the show!

The best part is that anyone, even non-Japanese residents, can enter the contest as long as they adhere to the requirements. Thankfully, Yakuza Fan has translated the rules for us. All you need to do is sign up for a niconico account, which has become super easy ever since an English version of the site was implemented.

Think you have what it takes to design a mascot character for SEGA? [Yakuza Fan via NeoGAF]

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...more

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more

Farts 'N' Crafts: The Witcher 3 and warheads candy

This week, I stop mucking around with condiments, pasta, and watercolors and just do a good old-fashioned drawing. The subject? Geralt of Rivia, The White Wolf, star of The Witcher books and games. While drawing, I'm asked stupid questions by Bill Zoeker, who doesn't know anything about Witchers. Also, we eat very sour candies.more
