Sony revealed Demon’s Souls Remake’s character creator today and it looks like you can now play the game as an actual person.


“With this new character creator, you will be able to customize your appearance with up to 16 million permutations,” writes Sony Worldwide Studios’ creative director Gavin Moore over on the PlayStation Blog. “We’ve added many more customization options than you’ll remember from the PS3 game, and also worked hard to ensure there is a satisfying variety possible for those who wish to tinker with every slider.”

The results are pretty impressive:

As people have been pointing out online, the new character creator looks like it’s from an entirely different game. Instead of just improving the oily baby-skinned action figure look of the original warriors, the Remake completely overhauls them.

I’m sure not everyone will be pleased by these changes, especially the Souls purists lurking among us. I, however, am looking forward to no longer being worried that my Demon’s Souls character might murder me in my dreams.

Aw.  Having your character look like a weird disgusting mutant was sort of charming.
