Super Smash Bros Ultimate World of Light Unlocks

Super Smash Bros Ultimate World of Light Unlocks Guide

Unlike the other methods, the path to unlocking fighters in Adventure Mode can be the most rigorous and time-consuming. While some captive fighters can be found relatively quickly in the World of Light’s sprawling map – the bulk of fighters you can unlock are hidden away across the map and beyond – and can take you upwards of 20-30 hours to find them all.

Unique to this mode – you only start with Kirby, and must unlock the rest of the cast including the other original 7 fighters, and each of the Mii Fighters. Any character you unlock in other modes won’t show up here – but those you unlock in the World of Light will show up back in other Smash Modes if you haven’t found them already.
