Robin’s Levin Sword Detailed In Super Smash Bros.

Posted on Jul 16 2014 - 5:51pm by Michael Sobrevega

Like with Brawl, Sakurai will be providing daily updates on the development progress of Super Smash Bros For Wii U and 3DS through Miiverse. Yesterday, revealed more details on Lucina. Lucina shares many similarities with Marth, but with the key difference being in the strength of their swords. Marth heavily relies on the tip of the sword to maximize damage and knock back.  On the other hand, Lucina strength is much more balanced throughout the Falchion, making spacing less important in her play style.

Today, Sakurai revealed more details on Robin’s Levin Sword in Super Smash Bros. Levin Sword activates when you use a smash attack, however, like in Awakening, the Levin Sword can break. Once, it breaks the recovery time is long until you can use it again. Robin will resort to the bronze sword at the time being.

Sakurai:

Pic of the day. The Levin sword and tomes are Robin’s life lines. 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.

** Update: I missed one of Sakurai’s messages – so I have added it in now!

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.
