The next Animal Crossing game is set to break a long-standing (and often griped about) precedent for the series. Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, an upcoming 3DS spinoff title, will allow players to choose the skin tone of their avatars. The previously released Animal Crossing: New Leaf sought to address this issue with its tanning system, but it ultimately left many players unsatisfied. This mechanic was initially caught by a very observant fan, then confirmed by Nintendo’s Alison Rapp.

Hi, I'm Alex. I'm a lifelong Nintendo fan and PC gamer. A few of my all-time favourite video games include The Legend of Zeldas: Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask, Mass Effect 2, Rayman 2, and most importantly, Xenoblade. If I ever catch you making a "really feeling it" joke in our comments, you can bet your ass I'll hide it, you casual scum. Feel free to send me a private message if you have something you'd like to discuss... or if you just want to say hi!
