Out of ideas, SNK? :( Time to do what so many other developers have done... Shamelessly "clone" a be loved and respected design from the franchise to make a "new" character. :( Sometimes this practice can result in a pretty cool character, but Yumeji is pretty uninspired overall.

Obviously, Yumeji is a blatant sprite clone of Ukyo (and mind you, she was cloned from a sprite that was nearly 8 years old). -__- After reading her storyline, it makes sense why she's a clone design, but still... some clone designs are hard to accept. In fairness, Yumeji can pass as a somewhat "cool" character naturally and isn't quite as bad as some other clones from SSV (like that's saying much). Her overall appearance, persona and fighting style seem to work... and her ultra long ponytail is pretty cool, too. Even so, Yumeji doesn't really have many unique animations of her own... and it appears she has Shang Tsung's ability to morph into other characters during her special moves (yet another painfully 'cheap' aspect of her design). Booo. Nice try "Rule 63 Ukyo" ...could've been better.
