This interaction with interachange with a few platform switches and is accompanied by a few smaller Machine units. that have their own set of attacks. Continue to use your melee to we've your way in between the orb formations. The orbs are released from the three prongs directly in front of the Ro-Shi Unit. Avoid standing directly in front of the unit. 

The next inter action with Roshi will be in a larger round arena, giving it more variety of attacks. This time Ro-Shi can shoot lasers and rotate. You will need to be directly in front to receive damage, so to avoid damage stay out of its line of sight. These orbs will also have a variety of formations when released. Orb Flurries can be released or they can form rings as they disperse. Use melee attacks to get rid of them before they reach you.

This sequence will continue to alternate between the boss battle against Ko-Shi. You will need to continue to attack the unit until its HP has depleted and this will trigger the next cutscene.
