Minecraft Dungeons arrived.

Now that many of the original’s 126 million monthly active users are turning to the new Minecraft Dungeonsplayers ask, how do we customize our characters?

In terms of customization, players start with 28 different playable characters, many of which can be recognized from the previous title. This is remarkable, given early access to the previous title, including Alex and Steve (compared to the endless pre-creation and customization options available today.) Six different locked skins are also available in two upcoming DLCs , though players will need to purchase these separately through the Hero Edition for $30 or the Hero Pass add-on depending on which version of the game they’re playing.

To change skins, simply follow the on-screen instructions by navigating to the main menu where characters stand by the campfire. When a character is selected, an option appears in the lower right called “Change skin”. From there, new skins can be applied to any existing character. Once selected, confirm your choice and enjoy the new skin.
Unfortunately, no additional customization is available at this time. With two known DLC packs on the way and Microsoft’s track record of highly customizable gameplay for the series, enhanced customization seems a realistic hope for the future.
