Super Smash Bros Ultimate is bringing the long-running fighting game series to Nintendo Switch. There are more fighters to choose from than ever before, with plenty of new faces joining the veterans. And to help you get settled in with the new roster, we figured it would be a good idea to put together character guides for every single fighter. In this Super Smash Bros Ultimate Rosalina & Luma Guide, we’ll be taking a look at Rosalina & Luma. We’ll detail the changes that have been made since the duo’s last appearance. There will also be some info on their Final Smash and Alternate Costumes.

For info on every other character in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, you can head over to our Super Smash Bros Ultimate Characters Guide. You’ll find an ever-growing list of character profiles, as well as a full roster list.

How to Unlock Rosalina in Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Unlike previous Smash games, fighters are unlocked in the same way for all, rather than character-specific challenges. This means that while it can be a bit of a grind, all you need to do is play the game naturally and you’ll eventually unlock all of the characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. We’ve listed the three ways you can unlock characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate below:

  • Playing the World of Light single-player mode.
  • Completing Classic Mode with a character.
  • Playing the ‘Challenger Approaches’ fights that appear regularly, you will need to win them.

The fastest method involves triggering the Challenger Fights by reloading the game regularly. We’ve listed the method below:

  • Quit to the home screen and Restart the game.
  • Create a match with a custom rule set.
  • Make sure the match is 1 minute long, or 1 stock if you'd prefer.
  • After finishing the match (you can win or lose) you will offered a new Challenger Fight.
  • You'll need to win the Challenger fight
  • Repeat.
