Smash Bros. Director Masahiro Sakurai Details Newcomer Robin's Fighting Style

Robin, of Fire Emblem fame, attacks with a destructible sword a magical tome that changes powers.

Robin, alongside Lucina (who was also recently detailed), was revealed on Monday morning. Sakurai wrote on the Miiverse about Robin and his/her sword, "The Levin sword can be activated by using smash attacks – you can even activate these moves in midair! However, just like in the original game, the Levin sword can be used only a limited number of times before it breaks, at which point it takes some time to regenerate. When the Levin sword is unavailable, Robin fights using the bronze sword."

Sakurai also spoke specifically about Robin's tome writing, "The way Robin launches Arcfire is kind of crazy – he or she calls down a bolt of flame from above, then launches a pillar of fire! By the way, Robin’s tome changes with each special attack." You can see Robin throwing some fire with the tome at Captain Falcon in the image below.
