Choose From 3 Different Paths
The first crossroad will make you choose between three different characters to unlock. You can choose between Marth, Sheik and Villager. Each path has its own advantages and disadvantages so choose wisely!Which Character to Choose in Crossroad Paths
Marth's Path Advantages & Notable Characters
Marth's stats are very well-balanced. He is an easy character to master and will be helpful when fighting Spirits.
Sheik's Path Advantages & Notable Characters
Sheik is a fast and agile character. However despite her quickness and long range moveset, she is a bit harder to master. Opting to go through her path may take a bit longer, but will unlock lots of characters for you!
Villager's Path Advantages & Notable Characters
The Villager is a very tricky character to master since you need to get up close and personal with enemies to deal big damage. However, Villagers path offers the fastest route to beating Galeem!

Remember to activate the "!" Button past the yoshi island area. It is next to the river with a strong current. This will take down one of the barriers to the Temple of Light.
