Last, but not least, one of the biggest features we’ve been waiting to see, which is the ability to re-edit our characters including the ability to change their gender, physical appearance, and cosmetic appearances including hairstyles, face paint, etc. However, it has been clarified by Capcom that you will not be able to edit your Hunter’s name, Palico name or appearance. This one time token is valid for one use only and will only allow for a single editing of your character’s appearance, however, Capcom has announced that you can purchase more vouchers at a later date.
