Character Customization Available at the Start
You can customize everything from the start of the game. Unlike previous Animal Crossing games, you get full control! Instead of answering a cryptic quiz you can customize your character as part of the check-in procedure. You’ll be asked your name, birthday, and then have to take a passport picture. This is where you can customize from the options below.
Note: Facial features, hair, clothing, and accessories are no longer defined by gender.
There are 8 skin tones to choose from initially.
Hairstyles and Hair Colors
There are 8 initial hair styles and 8 hair colors to choose from initially.
There are 14 sets of eyes and 6 eye colors to choose from initially.
There are 3 nose options and 4 mouth options to choose from initially.
There are 3 cheek styles to choose from (no blush, heavy blush, light blush) and 2 cheek tones (pink or skin tone colored) to choose from initially.
How to Customize Your Character (Later)
You’re not locked into your original customization choices. You can customize your character any time by looking in your mirror or vanity.
