Fans playing their way through Smash Ultimate’s World of Light mode have been asking the question, how do you complete the “Torchlight reveals the hour” puzzle. Well, we have the answer.
Following along with our quick guide, the puzzle should not stump you for too much longer.
Once you progress through the main portion of the World of Light adventure mode, you will come to a level known as the ‘Sacred Land,’ or what some fans are labelling: Zelda Land. Here, you are met with a number of puzzles from Owls dotted around the area that must be completed before you can make any further progress in the game.
The one that has caused the most trouble is the ‘Torchlight reveals the hour’ puzzle, where you have to correspond the numbers given by the quest Owl to the torches in the surrounding area.
To begin the puzzle, head to the Owl statue located directly north of the area that looks like a clock laid out from above. By pressing on the owl, it will reveal a set of numbers – as if it would be telling you the time of the day. These are the numbers that must be matched with the torches.
From there, you have to match the red and blue torches with that number. The clock-like pattern begins with number 12 on the top and then goes to one with the next torch to the right. In a clockwise motion, these numbers rise by one from one to two to three and so on. Once you return to the top, you have returned to the number 12.
The number on the left given to you by the owl is for the red torches in the area, whilst the number on the right for their blue torch counter-parts. Activate the torches that correspond to the number given by the owl – 12:10 – to complete the quest and carry on your way.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate currently displays one of the most extensive character rosters in the gaming world and it’s about to get new entries. There are currently four empty character slots remaining for Fighter Pass Vol.2, here we explore six new fighters that Nintendo could add to SSBU.
There are several characters that the community would love to see introduced to the cast of the famous Nintendo fighting game and the addition of Steve has proven to the fans that anything is seemingly possible.
Smash Bros fans are a very passionate fanbase, with daily speculations about possible new characters and discussing rumors on Twitter and message boards.
Here are some of the characters we hope to see making their appearance in the game.
Fans have been looking forwards to the addition of the Devil May Cry protagonist for a long time, with rumors surfacing periodically around social media.
Brian Hanford, who voices V in Devil May Cry slipped up in an AMA podcast, seemingly confirming that Dante was going to be introduced in Smash Brothers. “To be part of Marvel vs Capcom or Super Smash Bros would be huge, which is what Dante is going to be,” the voice actor revealed.
Going all the way back to 2018, Director of PlatinumGames Hideki Kamiya started a poll on Twitter asking which one of his characters the public would like to see in SSBU. Dante won with around 40% of the vote against Amaterasu, Wonder Red, and Viewtiful Joe.
Fans were surprised about Waluigi’s absence in the initial SSBU roster.
Fans have been demanding the addition of Waluigi as a fighter since the announcement of SSBU when they noticed his absence from the character roster.
Let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want the taller Mario brother to be added in Smash Brothers? His assist trophy is not enough, fans want to smack other fighters with tennis rackets themselves.
Waluigi’s addition would finally complete the dysfunctional Mario family alongside Wario, Luigi, and Mario.
Paper Mario could be the second Mario added to the game.
If Link is able to get three versions in Ultimate, surely the quintessential Nintendo mascot can get a second.
Paper Mario, from the popular RPG, should be an obvious alternative to the character that Nintendo should seriously think about adding.
Probably one of the most requested characters by the community. Geno made his first appearance in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and has since become a beloved character even his absence following Mario RPG.
His costume was available in the previous version of Smash Brothers, available to be worn by Mii Gunners.
Geno was even considered for SSB: Brawl, with Masahiro Sakurai stating that “Geno was actually a character I wanted to include as a fighter,” however, those plans never came to fruition.
Geno is already present in Ultimate as a spirit but the community is hopeful about his introduction as a playable character.
The Knight (Hollow Knight)
An odd choice at first glance, The Knight was voted by fans as one of the characters they would most want to see in SSBU not long ago.
While seemingly not adding anything incredibly unique to the current roster, our little fighter’s abilities could easily suit the game: a swordsman, able to dash past enemies, and double jump away from trouble.
And let’s not ignore the amazing music tracks and arena his addition would bring.
With rumors of the new Crash game coming to Switch, anything is possible
Crash needs no introductions. The beloved bandicoot has often been linked with an appearance in SSBU, with the most recent rumors dating back to early 2020.
Crash topped a Source Gaming poll on the most requested character, with fans figuratively screaming his addition, resulting in his name constantly appearing in the top 5 of similar polls online.
The Fighter Pass Vol.2 will see its final release before December 31st, 2021 meaning there is still a long way to go before we see if any of the fighters mentioned above are introduced. We know that Nintendo loves to add characters that nobody has predicted so we should be ready for a surprise.
