Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is going to have new character customization options that were added to the game after Square Enix received user feedback following the game’s alpha-testing phase. Square list some of these on their devblog:


An extended hair color palette, plus a plethora of playful tattoos.


Several new hairstyles for men…


Several new hairstyles for women, including…OMG! Long hair options! And is that a SLIDER on the right for ear size!?


And a slider for height!? What else could there be a slider for!?!??


And purple whiskers!? And purple eyes!?




Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is slated for release this Summer. Prior to that, the game will go through a third phase of beta-testing in June.

    lol if this becomes like PSO2’s character creation, then i’m sure that there will be lots of lols along the way (jiggly bewb physics like this

    • I hate how every asian MMORPG now adays has that.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        oh well

    • Luna Kazemaru

      lol that was a glitch if i remember and god it was funny

      • Ferrick

        lol yeah, i tried it out myself and couldn’t stop laughing XD, that’s why character customization took the longest time for me XD

        • Luna Kazemaru

          well some of the hair kinda made me giggle aswell while i was making my character overall pso2 character creation was god like.

    • KuchikiSentou

      Lol, not funny dude..

      • Luna Kazemaru

    Please use myriad instead of plethora. Plethora has a negative connotation. Myriad does not. Think of it this way. Myriad = lots of a good thing, like lots of candy or something else you enjoy. Plethora = lots of taxes, or something you don’t eenjoy having a lot of. Kthxbye. But good article either way.

    • So I would have a myriad of piñatas? That seems a bit too extreme…. Plethora is plenty enough for me :)

      • lol, right?

        this is gonna be the bitchiest thing I have said in a while but, Please use kthxbye at the absolute end of your statement as the “bye” suggest that you have left or are leaving.

  • Suicunesol

    I thought we had another Hatsune Miku crossover there for a second… :p

  • Wow I actually like those, may give this another go

    • I think most players problem is that they still have issues with the original FFXIV. Which is fine. But, I often notice they are applying those hinderances to ARR as well. Even issues that have been addressed by the producer as being resolved are often still brought up while critisizing ARR. I know this is not much of a point, but IGN has a whole article telling people that ARR can not be a good game because the foundation was so weak and that any attempts to try, even being made with a larger team and new direction will and should fail…

      • I never played the original just the beta

  • I just hope bust size isn’t tied to faces anymore. That was a little strange in the original… ^^;

    • Draparde

      It’s not. there’s a separate choice for that in the character creation now.

  • Draparde

    Oh, wow!… i’m gonna have to rethink which hairstyle i want again >_<

  • Shariest

    I hope that next test we can make characters without needing to log into the servers…
    20 minutes of character creation down the drain…And that was a quick build :P

    • omg 20 minutes? My bf is going to be stuck on chara-customizing for a week >_<

      • Shariest

        Yeah, i had to speedrun it after the first hour-long one :P
        When the game goes live i will have all the time in the world to fine-tune every single detail :P

  • Go2hell66

    Wth no boob size customiser? Get with the times SE!

    • saxophone15

      There already is one.

      • Go2hell66

        They did? Guess i should’ve expected no less from those dirty old men :/

    • They already added boob size customize in the alpha.

  • Oh god. Back to the drawing board.

  • Suicunesol

    I’d love to try this, but my PC sucks. Don’t intend on buying a PS3 anytime soon, either.

    Long hair options= really attractive. A lot of games don’t usually have that option, mainly because it takes more work to animate the longer hair…

    • Eilanzer

      I think the game will be available for ps4 too in the future…well…i hope so…

  • Unlimax

    Looking forward to see what they have .. in the meantime i find Blade & Soul has the best character customization to date , take a look at this masterpiece ~

    a character customization full of life :)

    • I played that, got bored cause the story is the same for all characters

  • Welp, looks like I’ll be spending another who knows how long re-designing my character. I’m looking forward to doing so though =^_^=

  • CirnoLakes

    Other MMORPG developers, take note.

    This is what your character creation engine needs to look like.

    • Strid

      It’s actually fairly limited. If you want people to take not of one, it should be Phantasy Star Online 2’s.

  • Kai2591

    This level of customization should be in every MMORPG :)

    that’s a lot of colours~

  • Vash bane

    time to take about a hour on character creator
