Among the new additions to the SSBU character roster, Simon Belmont is both a fan favorite and one of the best. Coming over from the Castelvania series, his inclusion was a big surprise for fans, which immediately marked him as one of the most highly sought after unlockables in the game. You’ll definitely want to rush this one, as Simon offers true combat potential. Here’s how to unlock Simon Belmont in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
As with all of our unlock guides, you can always just use the tried-and-true method for getting every character fast. Depending on your timing and already available characters, this may be the best option for you. However, it’s not very targeted. That requires the other methods, which involve World of Light or Classic Mode.
For World of Light, Simon Belmont is surprisingly not near his brother Richter in Dracula’s Castle. He’s actually placed very close to the end of SSBU’s adventure mode, which likely puts him a few hours in your future. With that being the case, World of Light is almost surely not the best way for you to unlock Simon in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. So, with those two methods explained, what’s the fastest way to unlock Simon?
Classic Mode is probably your best bet this time, though even here you will have to do some extra work. To unlock Simon you will want to beat Classic Mode with either Ice Climbers or King K Rool, likely a few times. The unlocks are in a pre-planned line, which changes depending on who you already have available. So it could take a single time through, or a few. And you also might not have these characters available yet to even try, as they aren’t default. Here’s how to unlock Ice Climbers and King K Rool though, so go through that and try for Simon afterward.
That’s all for how to unlock Simon Belmont in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
