Animal Crossing: New Horizons lets gamers get actually artistic with some new customized character options to select from. I’ve been having a good time kicking off on my new island life in model.

For starters, the brand new addition of darker pores and skin tones is a really welcome change given what of us used to have to do to have an in-game character that seemed extra like them. It’s a small step from Nintendo, however I’ve undoubtedly seen constructive reactions to it after Nintendo Directs. So kudos, Nintendo.

And though the sport solely allows you to select between a female and male “model,” you may nonetheless costume up in no matter garments you need and use any coiffure that fits your total model. These are no gender-locked clothes or hair choices, so you may go loopy and put on no matter fits you.

New Horizons additionally allows you to customise your eyes, eye shade, nostril, and mouth. You’ll be able to even apply a bit of blush, too, in case you’re up for it. Your decisions aren’t locked in for good—as you play, you’ll unlock extra hairstyles and hair colours, so nothing is everlasting, so long as you make a mirror for your own home, which helps you to swap it up everytime you need.
