Isabelle from Animal Crossing is one of the most hyped newcomers in Smash Bros Ultimate, although you will have to spend a bit of time unlocking her. You can unlock Isabelle in Classic Mode, Smash Mode or World of Light Adventure Mode. Here’s a guide on how to unlock Isabelle in Smash Bros Ultimate.

Fastest Way To Unlock Isabelle in Smash Bros Ultimate

You can unlock Isabelle fast by playing Classic Mode 5 times. If you play with Pikachu, you can unlock Villager, Shulk, R.O.B. Mega Man, and then Isabelle. This should take around 50 minutes or less.

How To Unlock Isabelle in Classic Mode

To unlock Isabelle in Classic Mode, start as Pikachu and play 5 Classic Mode campaigns. The Super Smash Bros Ultimate character unlock order shows that Isabelle comes sixth on Pikachu’s unlock chain.

Pikachu > Villager > Shulk > R.O.B. > Mega Man > Isabelle > Mr Game and Watch > Pichu > Sonic > Bayonetta

You can complete Classic Mode as Pikachu five times to do this or as any of the subsequent characters. You’ll unlock Isabelle after R.O.B. and each Classic Mode run should take around 10 minutes or less.

How To Unlock Isabelle in Smash Mode

You can also unlock Smash Bros Ultimate characters via the regular Smash Mode. While the game usually gives you a 10-minute cooldown between unlocking each character, you can reset this by closing the software and relaunching the game.

While this offers the fastest way to unlock every character, it’s not necessarily the fastest way to unlock Isabelle specifically. Isabelle is the 21st character you’ll unlock this way. This could take around an hour or so depending on how fast you carry out this method.

How To Unlock Isabelle in World of Light

Alternatively, you can unlock Isabelle in Smash Bros Ultimate Adventure Mode World of Light.

Isabelle can be found by taking the Villager Route when you get a choice between three characters. You can use the Kapp’n (Wild World) Spirit to travel to Isabelle in the Circular Villager in World of Light.
