Tekken 6BR Musings: Hair Customization


Do.


Don’t.

One of the new features touted in Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion is Hair Customization. Shown in the very first BR trailer, it appeared to let you go WILD with locks, giving any character elements, parts or maybe whole hairstyles from any other fighter. So you can give Asuka Kazama her estranged cousin Jin’s spiky do, or give Lili some pretty uncharacteristic corn rows. PINK corn rows. YEESH.

Well, the feature has been installed recently, and some Japanese players seem to be going hair-crazy with their characters. Apparently the feature works like this- you first buy a ‘base’ hairstyle which supplants your character’s default hair, then from there attach various parts on either side, or perhaps the back, like ponytails/pigtails, bangs and so forth. You also choose the color you want in the customization screen. It seems that the individual colors or elements are cheap or at least affordable, which should allow for players to experiment and play salon in between brawls.

Personally, I’m not too impressed so far with some of the stuff I’ve seen- some of the hair-customized characters look like some woodland animal died on top of their heads. Since I’m not too hot with making my Tekken babes look butch, I won’t be messing with this feature unless nicer options arrive.

More on this as I get it. Tekken 6BR is expected to release locally in Manila in mid-January or so, so we’ll see about that.
