Animal Crossing: New Horizons will let you choose your character’s skin tone in the game
Up until now, players haven’t been able to select their skin tone in mainline Animal Crossing games. This was something that was related to the likes of Happy Home Designer and Pocket Camp.
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, however, that will be different. Kotaku received confirmation from Nintendo that you’ll be able to select your character’s skin tone in the game.
Here’s a recap of other information:
The game takes place on an island, at which players will arrive as part of Tom Nook’s “deserted island getaway package”
– Start out with basically nothing but quickly acquire a tent, which you can place where you please
– Place furniture
– Lay out your objects wherever you want outside as well
– Basically, you can decorate the whole game world now
– Crafting system, which you can access via an app on your character’s widdle phone
– Collect materials by hacking away at trees, smacking rocks with your shovel, and other such activities
– Then you take them to a workbench (owned by Tom Nook) to fill in the blanks of a recipe
– Various types of wood and rocks can be used to create a bench, a bonfire, and a flimsy axe
– Couch co-op mode
– One using a Pro controller while another holds a single Joy-Con
– All it takes to invite someone to your world is a quick call using the “Call An Islander” app on your in-game phone
– Up to eight players can chill out on a single island
– Other players can help you collect materials, work on crafting projects, etc.
– Camera with filters
– New systems surrounding the core Animal Crossing loop
– Nearly everything you do earns you “Nook Miles,” which are inspired by airplane mileage programs
Everything from arriving on the island to crafting items to simply picking weeds earns you points, which you can exchange for access to items and activities
– The goal was to make it so that players can progress however they want
