The dog emblem shows that you are not a super ninja, not even a medium ninja, you're a beginner. You will become something more through the course of the game. Not because you get all new powers, but because you become super good at playing the game. Then you will become a "Super" Ninja.
Ah, thank you very much for the quick response. So by completing higher levels, your emblem will change accordingly? Or will it change depending on how many run-throughs you have had. For instance, beginner difficulty level is "dog" and normal difficulty is another? Or does it progress through the exact same play-through?
Sorry if I am asking questions which forces you to reveal more than intended at this stage in the production
By the way, the moves list you pointed out just got me majorly excited about using Ibuki in Street Fighter 5, which is being released today!
Alright, good luck further with the great looking project.
