In order to differentiate yourself from your fellow hunters on the battlefield, there are tons of Wild Hearts character customization options – and they go far beyond simply selecting unique gear and weapons.

Here's a closer look at the customization options in Wild Hearts, along with how to customize your hunter.

The 'Wild Hearts' character customization options are extensive.

Like any good multiplayer game or RPG, Wild Hearts gives you tons of control over how your in-game character looks. Not only will you be able to equip a variety of different weapons and armor during your adventures, but there’s a robust character creator that lets you modify your physical appearance based on your preferences. It's more comprehensive than most games, making it easy to build a hunter who matches your needs.

Beyond the customization options listed above, you’ll be able to dive into submenus to change everything from your height and underwear to your character’s voice and personality (which impacts their resting pose).

How to customize your character in 'Wild Hearts'.

Wild Hearts makes it easy to customize your character. Initially, the game will launch you into a tutorial that’ll teach you the basics of hunting, how to navigate your surroundings, and how to deal with the pesky Kemono. After working your way through this brief mission, you’ll eventually come across a mysterious figure known as Mujina. Talk with Mujina, and you’ll finally be able to customize your appearance.

Thankfully, Wild Hearts doesn’t lock you into your appearance and gives you an easy way to customize your character beyond the tutorial. This involves building the Looking Glass Karakuri, which should become available to you just a few hours into the game. The Looking Glass Karakuri offers all the same customization options as the tutorial, so don’t stress too much about perfecting your character right when you launch Wild Hearts.
