How to unlock Versus. Mode in Dr. Mario World

Dr. Mario World is finally here for iOS and Android devices, and would-be Doctors-in-training is currently on a quest to remove all the viruses from the Mario world.

Unfortunately, sometimes curing the world is a bit boring— so when boredom strikes, be sure to head online to face off against your fellow doctors in a series of mental battles to prove what you have what it takes.

It sounds all fine and dandy, but sadly vs. mode isn’t available from the get-go; hence, you need to unlock it before playing it.

But how?

Well, it is quite simple and won’t require you to sink any money or extra time into the game as needed. It’s a free-to-play title, after all. All you need to do is beat Stage 20 and unlock assistants to go into vs. mode.

The reason being, the first 20 levels serve as a tutorial for the game and its mechanics. Nintendo wants to make sure players know what they’re doing before they face other opponents online,

Of course, to play the vs. mode, you need to be online. The game uses a fair chunk of data, so try to play while you are on a wi-fi connection.
