Years after first having the role, voice actress Megumi Ogata has recently looked back on first voicing Yugi Mutou from the original 1998 Yu-Gi-Oh! anime. The memory apparently came to Ogata after listening to "Yōryū Risui," a Samurai Deeper Kyo character song for Sanda Yukimura (another of Ogata's roles).

Whatever you think of it being so multiplayer-centric and simplistic, it's hard to deny that Star Wars Battlefront looks and sounds great, capturing much of the magic of Star Wars. It's also home to more than a few subtle references to the movies, the best of which was only just discovered.
