Take On Dark Soul II’s Evil Forces And Dungeons With Style

By Sato . February 5, 2014 . 11:50pm


In Dark Souls II, you’ll be fighting evil, entering dangerous dungeons, and facing some horrifying enemies. If it’s anything like the first game, you’ll be dying. A lot. So, why not look good and go out in style? Famitsu gives us a look at some of the character customization options.

Before starting your journey, you’ll need to make your character. The above is a look at the character creation screen, where you’ll be making your appearance configurations. The identity and gift tab is where you’ll be making your selections that will have an effect on your early game status and items, along with where you’ll manage your gifts.


Similar to the first game, the “gifts” will give you a temporary advantage when you start Dark Souls II. There are eight different items such as the Ring of Life, Articles of Healing, Giant’s Seed, and more. These items can be acquired in the game, so you don’t have to worry about needing to purchase DLC to get them.



Next is the body selection, where you’ll be making your choice of gender, or whether you’d like to have a normal or ripped body. According to the report, you can even make a “macho girl,” if that’s your thing!



The facial customization part will be similar to Dark Souls, where you’ll be making various adjustments to parts like your hairstyle and eyebrows. Once you have your macho girl prettied-up, you’ll be good to go!


Dark Souls II will be released on March 13, 2014 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in Japan.

    I would care more about character customization if I didn’t spend the game so deep inside a suit of armor that sunshine and easy bathroom trips are but a distant memory.

    • Upvoted for the lolz

    • Derek E Nay

      You are not wrong. But my character is my character. It’s more or less of a way to help get you attached to the character. Some people enjoy it, others don’t. To me, it’s a nice addition. Though, I would be certainly sad if they ever got rid of it.

    • Eilanzer

      Nah armor is for the weak! the true warrior kill demons naked like a swag boss O_o

  • Jezzy

    Can’t wait to spend half the game looking like a prune with a swag hairdo.

    • Göran Isacson

      Unless your hair also rots as you die… but hey, each hairdo rots in its very own special way!

  • Kornelious

    I wonder if anything will carry over from the first Dark Souls?

  • 七死

    you can make a macho girl, but can you make a girly man?

    Dark Souls II will be released on March 13, 2014 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in Japan.

  • lordsofskulls

    In Demon’s Souls I was a chick. In Dark Souls a dude. In Dark Souls 2 =3 chick again for sure, I like pretty face covered in blood ;3

  • MrRobbyM

    I see the character creator has made a very incremental upgrade..

  • Sperium3000

    Will it be easier to make a black character without the game freaking out and making the character purple or electric pink instead?

    • GOLD

      creating black characters in any game is an insulting process. especially in ds the jubilant look like realistic Sambo.

  • ndjn3979

    Wow, improvement.

  • GOLD

    Character customization was extremely weak in in DS no matter what you did you ended up with a character who looked better hollowed.

  • Bentan

    they had me at macho girl

  • Omikuji

    Mmm fashion souls. I always loved making lots of alts in the original Dark Souls just to have lots of different character looks. Good to see they have updated the character creation to be less derp faces which looked crossed eyes all the time. XD
