Animal Crossing: New Horizons has now gained a feature unique to the series that allows players to view the island in first person. Players have been indulging in the new update, “Version 2.0.0” with a whole host of new additions and changes to the experience. Like new hairstyles and reactions, home storage can be expanded by the player, and even new activities added to the Nook Mileage/Nook Miles+ program among many other additions. Animal Crossing: New Horizon players have a lot to look forward to, and this guide will walk you through the process of using your new (pro) game camera to switch to a first-person perspective of the island.
How to Switch to First Person View in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
First of all, it should be noted that "playing in first person" can only be accomplished by purchasing the "Pro Camera" upgrade for 15oo Miles Points from the Nook Terminal. Once you've purchased the camera upgrade, by pressing the "-" button, choose to go into first-person view or place your phone on a tripod. You will now be able to "play" Animal Crossing: New Horizons in first person.
Note that the player can move in the first person while holding the camera.
Pro Camera Uses
The main use of the 'Pro Camera' is of course to be able to play Animal Crossing in first person, however, another added feature is that the camera can be placed on a tripod as mentioned above and so players will be able to take photos of their island in all its glory from a first-person perspective.
Will you play through the new update to experience all the extra features and use the pro camera to play in first person mode?
