Making your character look like you is a big deal to a lot of gamers in games that offer character customisation, and so when certain styles or features don’t quite look how you would want them to, it can be a touch annoying. What’s even worse is when there is a hairstyle or eye shape that matches your real flesh self but it’s inexplicably greyed out. Yep, ponytails are only for girls and buzzcuts are only for boys, it’s the rules.
Thankfully Nintendo has seen fit to ignore this troublesome trend for Animal Crossing: New Horizons and instead has opted for a complete and total free-for-all of all the customisation options regardless of what gender you pick. This includes hair, facial features, the whole kazoo. We’ve seen the customisation in action before, but it’s good to know that our gender choices won’t be restricting us in any way.
Animal Crossing is no stranger to this idea, past entries have allowed male characters to wear dresses and skirts freely, but it’s still pleasing to see that character customisation follows this trend as well. After all, what’s the point in limiting your selection?
