Animal Crossing: New Horizons update 1.4.0, also known as the Summer Update part 2, is now live, and its headlining features are the additions of the Dream Suite, a new fireworks feature, and the ability to back up your save data. But it’s also added back in a feature that has was patched out of the game earlier.
A glitch in earlier versions of the game allowed you to remove the UI when using your Nook Phone to take a photo, letting you get clean footage of your character’s movements from a fixed angle. As Polygon notes, this glitch, which was patched out earlier this month, is now back–but this time it’s a feature, included on purpose.
As you can see in the tweet below from Animal Crossing World, the game will now let you remove UI elements when taking a photo by clicking the right stick. This isn’t possible if you’re playing using just the left Joy-Con in horizontal mode, but it’s possible in all other control variants.
📷 The past Camera App Glitch allowing you to remove the HUD has now been added as a native feature in Version 1.4 of Animal Crossing: New Horizons! 🎉 Simply press in the right analog stick to remove the user interface. Thank you Nintendo!! 🙇 #ACHH pic.twitter.com/wGC0xVhV0z

This should make it easier to get that perfect, clean footage of your character ominously running around with a gold-plated axe.
The first Summer update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons added plenty of new content too, including swimming–here’s how to hunt down pearls every day.
