Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Update 2 Turns Glitch Into Feature

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.

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.
