It looks like Nintendo is finally giving players everything they ever asked for. They're starting a world completely from scratch with the ability to shape it in their own image. Everything from buildings to roads paved by hand are completely in your control—and that includes your avatar.

For the first time in the series' history, players will have the option to control their skin color. They can opt into lighter and darker tones as they please with little restriction. This comes as a huge change for fans who remember when the only reason your skin changed was due to the sun in summer.

Players will also now be able to change their gender at any time during the game. This option even goes as far as to allow items like bows and facial hair to be applicable to any gender chosen in the game. Nintendo is giving everyone the ability to create themselves as they truly want to be.

All these features come in addition to the pre-existing customization options such as shirts, pans, shoes, eyes, and hair. Players will have the opportunity to change their appearance at any time during game play.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons releases March 20 for the Nintendo Switch.
