  3. 3
    As you can see, I have created several custom characters
    .
    In your case, this is going to be empty.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    The cards here will be empty, which can be seen right here in this screen showing right now

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    There are several blank cards here
    .
    In order to create a custom character, you need to press "x" on your controller, on any of these new cards. When you select and press "x", you will see 2 options. You can create a regular character or an original one.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    The difference between the 2 options is that if you choose a regular character, then you are not free to modify everything
    .
    There will be some limitations, depending on the character you choose, but in the original character creator, you are free to use any tool and any equipment that you currently have unlocked. I'll just go ahead and press "x" on the control pad after selecting the original character option.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Now you have the option to choose the soul of the warrior, which gives your character the ability to use its weapons, moves list, and so on
    .
    It doesn't really matter what you choose here because this is editable later on.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8

    .
    You can either choose a male character or a female character.

    I'll go ahead and choose male since my voice is male
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Now you have the option to choose the height
    .
    Please note that the strength of the character depends on the height and body build. I will go ahead and create a normal height character.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    The next thing is hair
    .
    Select the hair by pressing the "x" button. A new window will then open.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    You can choose between the various hair styles for your character
    .
    Of course, this depends on your preference. Don't worry about the colors. They can easily be changed later on. Please note that several new features of the face, the hair, equipment, and so on, will be unlocked later on as you progress through the game and gain levels. Let's go ahead and choose the hair.

    If there is no malfestation, you will hear the voice as you have chosen, but if you choose another malfestation level, then the voice changes a little
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25

    The first part of the actual editing is "hat equipment"
    .

  33. 33
    Choose that option and then you can select anything that you like from here
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    As I have already noted, several new pieces of equipment will be unlocked as I progress through the game, so please bear in mind that not everything that you can see here will appear on your screen
    .
    Just go ahead and press "x" on anything that you like.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  35. 35
    The next thing is facial equipment

    You can just go on and select the things you like.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  38. 38
    Please note that not everything is compatible with every other piece of equipment
    .
    For example, if your character is wearing things like a long coat, and then you go to an upper body coverings section and select anything that will cover your body twice, like choosing anything similar to that, like a long leather coat, you cannot put a similar item on top of that.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  39. 39
    If something like that occurs where conflicting equipment is chosen, the screen will display a message saying that the equipment conflicts with something already in use
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  40. 40
    If you choose to remove the conflicting equipment, then it will be replaced
    .
    So go ahead and change anything that you need to change and that's pretty much it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  41. 41
    The last 3 sections of the editor are specialised equipment
    .
    You can set up 3 pieces of special equipment to your character. For example, we can adjust this bolt to his head.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  42. 42
    If you press "x" again while you have already selected the equipment, then you have a choice of either changing the equipment or adjusting the equipment
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  43. 43
    If you go to adjust the equipment, you can change the equipped location
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

  45. 45
    I will put it on the chest
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  46. 46
    Since this character is 3 dimensional, you can choose to equip this item in 3 dimensions
    .
    If you move the horizontal line, you can see this bolt is moving on the horizontal line.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  47. 47
    Now if you change anything on the vertical line, you will see it go up or down, and so on
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Basically, the same idea applies.

  61. 61
    Only the existing characters can be chosen
    .
    Not your creations. I will go ahead and choose Yoshimitsu.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  62. 62
    As you may have already noticed, the weapon and the stance of the character has changed
