Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is out very soon and we’ve been hard at work trying to understand how the game doles out its unlockable characters (there’s 54 of them). It turns out there’s heaps of ways, but one of the most reliable ways I found with the game was through the standard Smash mode.
Obviously, this is the fastest way we were able to come up with that felt the least tedious; there may be other methods out there but this seems to be the quickest and simplest way to unlock characters.
THE FASTEST WAY TO UNLOCK EVERY CHARACTER IN SUPER SMASH BROS ULTIMATE
It’s really easy. Essentially, you just have to play the game in ten minute intervals. After each ten minutes, and you finishing a match, the game will throw a new challenger at you who you must defeat to unlock. After doing so, you can just leave your Switch running for ten more minutes and then attempt another match to unlock another character.
