One could guess that part of the reason why Yumi might want to challenge Asuka is due to her lineage, with the legacies of Hanzou and Kokuei in play; but what if one of the rival schools has a more personal history for her?
(Or to put it another way; what if the ninja who killed her parents is connected to one of the factions in the upcoming story? Perhaps a parent or relative of one of the characters involved.)
Interesting but that's getting too deep and too convenient I think. If something like that were to happen it'd happen in a main story, but you never know as Shinovi Versus is kind of building up to be a main game in the series.
Until it's explicitly stated by the Producer I'm still believing what he said, that the 3DS has the main games whilst other consoles have side stories. I'm still classing SV as a side story until I'm told otherwise.
Yumi's voice clips are up; the usual three clips for the character, and one from the voice actress herself.
(Presumably the other characters will also have their thumbnails marked as "new" once their voice clips are uploaded, too.)
Would anyone here be willing to translate them, or at least give the gist of what is being said in them? (Particularly, the second character clip, and the clip from Hara Yumi's own perspective.)
They did the same thing with the first two games and their audio clips are still available on each game's site.
A new one will be put up every week. I guess this also includes Hanzou and Homura's group but if that's the case that'll take 19 weeks and the game comes out in 16 weeks...
Voice 1= "*sigh* Oh dear" or something like that. Voice 2= "Snow wraps and conceals everything in white. Light, sadness, joy and pleasure" I think. Voice 3= "I'm embarrassed." in her ojou-type voice in a situation when her clothes are getting shredded I think.
I can only catch bits of what the message is saying but I'll try "I'm Yumi's voice actress Hara Yumi, we happen to share the same name and that makes me quite happy. Yumi is, how to say it, * I think she's kind of cool and an amazing character. We share the same name but she's the exact opposite of me, she's burdened with many responsibilities. You'll find out more in the game so please play it. Thank you."
*she says something here which sounds like gibberish to me but of course it's not, I just don't know what she's saying
