Zelda: Breath of The Wild Becomes a First-Person Game in Newly-Discovered Glitch
Modders have already created some first-person camera for Breath of the Wild, but one player has managed to figure out a glitch that should (in theory) let anyone look at Hyrule from a totally different perspective.
As reported by Kotaku, Twitter user A.xk managed to discover a specific button input that would trigger the camera to clip down to a roughly first-person view. Check out the gif below from A.xK’s YouTube channel.

New item hold glitch
Item hold cancel
YouTuber Peco also managed to recreate the glitch if you want to see some longer clips of the first-person view.
It remains to be seen if Nintendo addresses this glitch in a future patch, so make sure to check it out for yourself before too long.
If seeing Hyrule from a new angle has you eager for more Zelda, the good news is that Nintendo says more Breath of the Wild 2 news will come later in 2021. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like Nintendo planned on celebrating Zelda’s recent anniversary.
