Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris – Kirito’s Tent and changing his appearance
Before you’re able to do all of the above you’ll first need to get through most of Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris‘ first chapter. Be forewarned since, as mentioned in our official review, you’re going to have to go through a gauntlet of roughly eight boss encounters, and some of them even have multiple phases. Similarly, as cited in our technical review, there are a number of performance and control issues that can put you at a disadvantage.
All in all, you’re looking at roughly eight hours to get past the first chapter. If in case you made it past those battles, then you’ll finally be treated to additional features in the game, including Kirito’s Tent:
Kirito’s Tent is located in North Centoria’s main grounds right next to the savepoint. You can’t miss it since that’s where you’ve likely spent several hours in the previous chapter just running back and forth to do some errands.
Inside the tent, you’ll spot Kirito’s Desk which lets you view Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris‘ encyclopedia, cutscenes, and tutorial tooltips. You can also change the game’s difficulty.
Of course, your objective is to click on “Character Creation” to change Kirito’s appearance, name, hairstyle, and even the avatar’s gender and voice. You can see the available options below:
Note: Kirito will revert back to his default appearance during cutscenes.
Transmog and character customization
Don’t forget that you’d be able to make changes to the equipment of Kirito, Eugeo, Alice, and co. via the Visualize Attire function in the Status menu:
Here, you can choose from clothing and weapon styles that your characters used in certain cutscenes as well as anything you’ve obtained from the “Month 1 Deluxe Edition” (if you purchased that version).
Keep in mind that, because these are transmogrification/cosmetic effects only, you’ll still retain the default stats of the gear pieces that you have equipped. You can mix and match accordingly to find the looks that suit your characters best.
Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is available on Steam.
