How To Change Clothing And Appearance In Splatoon 2
Nintendo has thankfully made customization options in Splatoon 2 very straightforward. The first step needed is to ensure that the player isn't within any active matches -- they'll need to be hanging around in Inkopolis Square, the game's central hub area, in order to change their appearance. Once that's done, players only need to press the Switch's + button to bring up the game's menu -- once it's open, navigate to the Other tab then the Style tab.
The Style tab is the place where players can look through their available customization options as well as various inventory items. There are several options here, including hairstyle, pants style, eye color, skin tone, and gender. The Style tab is also where players can customize things like weapons, head accessories, clothing, and shoes. Simple use the right analog stick in order to cycle through various items. Once that's done, press A to confirm the selection and apply it to the character in question.
Nintendo Switch players will note that there aren't too many character-specific customization options within Splatoon 2, and we don't know yet if Nintendo has any plans to introduce additional clothing or accessories. With that said, players can further customize their characters using gear unlocked through Splatoon amiibo as well as stand out on the battlefield by unlocking Hero weapons for online multiplayer.
