Splatoon 3 takes what Nintendo created in the first two squid games and amps it up in every respect. Even the Splatoon 3 character customization options have ballooned in size, with more changeable Inkling and Octoling options than ever before. This means that you can finally create the cephalopod of your dreams before you start splatting.

From a single-player story starring Callie and Marie to multiplayer Turf War and Splatfests galore, the Splatoon 3 character customization will allow you to be the freshest-looking Inkling in the game (you could choose to be an Octoling too…). There are plenty of new and returning options for you this year, and that’s why we’ve created this guide to tell you what they are.

Read on below to find out everything we know – and you need to know – on what options you have when you create your character, as well as what you can outfit them with.

Splatoon 3 character customization

There are many ways in which you can customize your character in Splatoon 3 that are different from previous games. In Splatoon 3 you can customise you character in the following ways:

  • Style
  • Skin ton
  • Eye colour
  • Eyebrows
  • Hairstyle
  • Trousers

All Squids and Octolings can use all customization options, free from any previous gender constraints that we saw in previous games and in addition to these options, on the fashion front, you can choose what clothes your character wears, including headgear, shoes, and clothes.

These change how you look and provide different abilities while you are setting up your loadouts, so make your choices wisely.
