If you're a regular visitor of our humble site, you may have already seen a selection of new screenshots from Animal Crossing: New Horizons that have been doing the rounds over the last few hours or so. They were spotted at an event held by Nintendo Latin America, and we were so excited by the new clothing options they showed that we overlooked an even more important detail.

Yes, that's right, the new game appears to feature some series-first customisable face options. In the images below, we can see different nose and mouth shapes - which amazingly haven't been possible in the series so far. These changes are available alongside the ability to change your skin tone, a feature which was revealed earlier this year.

Here we can see a rounded nose, instead of the usual triangle shape
And here's a different rounded nose, and a different mouth shape, too!

Clearly, we still don't know everything there is to know about character customisation at this point, so we may well have one or two more welcome surprises in store. That 20th March release date can't come soon enough, can it?

Are you happy to see more customisation options available in the game? Are you looking forward to this one? Let us know in the comments.
