World of Light is an Adventure mode for the single-player section of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The gameplay is simple, you just need to run around on a map and play special fights with some characters, and kill them to unlock their characters.
However, the game will only start you off with Kirby unlocked, which means you will have to search for any other characters which you want to play as and beat them to unlock each character.
