Two new videos showcasing the various character customization options have dropped online for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Following the direct last week, Nintendo has been releasing smaller videos showcasing some of the gameplay elements fans have been asking about.
Character customization is a big deal for the Animal Crossing fans. In previous iterations of the series, players had little control over their characters’ facial features or skin tone, and haircuts were a bit of a guessing game Now, players have far more control over their villagers’ appearance right from the beginning of the game.

At the counter, they’ll ask for your name and birthday, and then they’ll take a picture of you for your passport. Take as much time as you need to get yourself looking just the way you want! pic.twitter.com/kJQjUDIREc

According to the official Animal Crossing Twitter, making your villager will be one of the first things you do upon starting the game. As part of the island getaway package you will need to have an in-game passport, which will require a photo of your character. This takes you to a character customization menu, where you can choose your skin tone, hair color and style, and eye, nose, and mouth type.
