New pictures from Super Smash Bros 4 show one of Robin’s move as well as the screen knockouts.

Robin is one of the recently announced additions to the Super Smash Bros roster from Fire Emblem.

Chrom and Lucina were also announced, joining Marth from the series.

Captain Falcon, a longtime Super Smash character, was also formally announced.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai shared a picture showing one of Robin’s moves.

“Robin’s Nosferatu is the first ability in the Smash Bros. series that recovers your damage as it gives damage to others,” he said.

“The attack becomes even stronger if you strike from behind! Robin doesn’t actually use this ability in the original game, but we added that element to make the character unique. Who knows–the ideas we use in this game may contribute to the original series.”

He also shared an image that shows Mario and Little Mac getting Screen K.O.’d (knocked out) in the stage Town and City. “There are also patterns where players will disappear into the sky for Star K.O.s, but as a match’s time limit approaches, those K.O.s will not occur anymore,” he said.
