How Yumi Y. joined the Tourney
Yumi Yoshimura was born in Neyagawa, Osaka, Japan in 1975. She learned that there was a talent search underway in Tokyo. She successfully tried out and was paired with Ami Onuki to form the group PUFFY. Kazuya Mishima sent them an invitation to the Smash Bros. Tourney. Yumi's goal was to defeat Yoh Asakura.
How to Unlock
The player must accomplish one of these tasks to unlock Yumi Y.:
- Play 740 Versus Mode matches.
- Using Pvt. Trip, win 20 matches in the Survival Mode.
For both requirements, the player will have to fight Yumi at Lylat Cruise. Upon defeating her, the announcer will say "Someone else has joined the Tourney!" after a Smash Ball appears on the lower-right corner of the screen with a message saying "You can now use Yumi Yoshimura, the powerful punk rocker." She will be seen right of Sheik, left of Link, above Sonic, and on the very top of the character select screen.
