In yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, Masahiro Sakurai revealed Zelda’s newest attack. In previous versions of Super Smash Bros., Zelda’s Special Down attack was transforming into Sheik. However, in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. 4, Zelda maintains her princess status by dropping Sheik and delegating her dirty work to a Phantom. Zelda’s new Special Down attack is called Phantom Slash. This attack summons a Phantom to charge at opponents, and can be used a both an offensive and defensive maneuver. Just make sure your opponent doesn’t reflect it back at you! Sheik fans don’t worry, Sheik is still a playable character capable of executing powerful new attacks.
