First off, Utsusemi's alternate costume is basically a TOTAL rip-off of Gambit's in the original Bushido Blade. And I have to be honest, as an X-Men fan... I actually liked Utsusemi for that very reason when I first tried out Bushido Blade! LMAO. Thankfully, they also gave him a more suiting, traditional samurai attire... but I gotta admit, I might actually like the Gambit outfit more. C'mon, it takes some guts to cosplay Gambit and do it right! lol. In fairness, Utsusemi was a pretty cool character in both games. He had a natural badass charisma about him and some pretty cool unique moves.
