Street Fighter 6 character creation explained: Can you change your avatar?
If you're looking to change your avatar in Street Fighter 6, then look no further. In Street Fighter 6, you'll have the opportunity to both create and customise your avatar as you embark on your various battles in the World Tour mode and Battle Hub.
While the character creator is always fun, sometimes you just want to give your creation a nip and a tuck here and there to tweak its appearance as you get further into gameplay.
Below we'll go over whether you can change your avatar in the game, so keep reading for all you need to know about character creation (and customisation) in SF6.

Can you change your avatar in Street Fighter 6?
The short and simple answer is yes, you can change your avatar in Street Fighter 6. Whether you have created a fighter that just doesn’t hit the right notes once you see them out in the world, or just fancy a change, you are not locked in and can change your avatar’s appearance.
You’re also able to do it as frequently as you like, as long as you’ve got the in-game funds to pay for it. Fortunately, it isn’t too expensive, so editing your creation won’t be costing you an arm and a leg.

How to change your avatar in Street Fighter 6 World Tour
There are two ways to edit your avatar in Street Fighter 6, the first of which is directly linked to the World Tour mode. Once you have created your character and started exploring Metro City and beyond, you’ll be able to head to the Beauty Salon.
Once inside, you can tweak your character to your heart’s content, so don’t worry too much about that overly-long beard you gave them, or if you've used a character recipe in SF6 to play as Kratos. You can pop in for a shave anytime, as long as you’ve got 1000 Zenny to pay for it.
If you're happy with your characters, you can also take them to any of the in-game stores to try on some clothing that will also boost their stats as well.

Customising your SF6 character in the Battle Hub
The second way you can change your avatar is within the game’s Battle Hub. Once you get into any of the Battle Lobbies, you can head around the back near the central cabinets and speak to the desk clerk nearby.
For the pretty affordable price of 50 Drive Tickets, you’ll be able to quickly edit what your avatar looks like - and now that you know how to edit your avatar, you’ll be serving looks in Metro City (or scrapping with other players as an exaggeratedly proportioned brute in no time).
