Can Be Changed With a Voucher!

You may re-do your character by purchasing a Character Edit Voucher as a downloadable content. If you played the game from Day 1, you may be given a free voucher so when you have it be careful because it costs money otherwise!

If you want to know more about the Character Edit Voucher, check out the article below!

How to Use the Character Edit Voucher

Palico Features


In Monster Hunter World, you are able to customize both your Hunter and Palico at the start of the game. Like the Hunter, certain elements like the Hair and Pattern can be customized and cannot be changed unless you have a Palico Edit Voucher!

Player Name

There is no way to change your hunter's name later on even with a Character Edit Voucher so think about the name you want to use when the game asks you at the start! The only way to change your hunter's name is to create a new save!
