Super Smash Bros Ultimate Food Race Walkthrough

In order to unlock a certain character in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, you’ll need to make it past the Gourmet Food Race. Here’s how to do it.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate reunites every character from the series’ history to battle it out for dominance. There’s new characters as well, and a bunch of tweaks to the classic Smash formula. One of the most substantial new additions is the World of Light single-player mode. It presents players with a large map which they must unveil by awakening characters. There are simple puzzles, plenty of brawling, and also a few minigames here and there. Gourmet Food Race is one such minigame. The Food Race must be completed to unlock King Dedede, and is one of the more bizarre tasks that you’ll be asked to take on in World of Light. To make sure you beat it quickly, and that you bag the King Dedede of your dreams, we’ve put together this Super Smash Bros Ultimate Food Race Guide. We’ll detail the solution to the Food Race puzzle, and take a look at what it unlocks.
