Forums - Nintendo Discussion - SSB Ultimate character unlock questions

So I’ve been unlocking characters regularly doing just the traditional Smash mode. I got to 51 characters, and now no more character unlock opportunities are happening.

I read that you have to try different modes like classic mode to keep unlocking, but classic mode beaten with multiple characters, squad strike, and tourney mode have not worked.

I haven’t had a character unlock opportunity in like 4 hours! What’s going on, and why does this game have to be so damn enigmatic rather than just being clear and telling you?

Supposedly it should happen once every 10 minutes, and you could unlock every character like that. It's how I did it, anyway... don't know what's going on there.



Have you tried Spirit Mode???



Have a nice day...

World of Light?

I'm not done unlocking but what I do is play regular mode and after one or two games I unlock a character. Then restart the game because the average is every 10 minute for a new character so if you restart the in game timer goes away.

wait... you've unlocked 51 of them, did you fail to unlock others? you know they are waiting for a rematch for you in the top right area of the main menu... it's called something like challengers await, it's a rainbow coloured gate in the bottom right corner of the section called "games and more" sorry had to open my copy to see what the section was named.

Let me know if you have that waiting for you.

 

(just going to point out, the game did tell you about this, you just failed to read it lol, that's not the games fault, except for being too fun for you to stop and read a screen of text tips! also keep in mind that smash has over 60 characters unlockable by playing the game for a few days, Street Fighter V takes months to unlock 5 characters from those season passes, or you need to pay around 30e per 5 characters)



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Right, that could be it, too.

Have you already fought/unlocked Palutena? She's supposedly the last one you should get if you're playing Smash mode, so if you have, the others are probably in Challenger's Approach.



Try checking Challenger's Approach. It's under Games & More.



How about Piranha Plant? Should he be available after registering or do I have to unlock him first? Because I can't find him and wasn't sure if that's normal or not?
