Mods already make first-person views possible in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. One player, however, has apparently figured out how to do that without one.
As Twitter user A.xk pointed out, the glitch can be unlocked by following these inputs:
New item hold glitch
item hold cancel
Doing this causes the camera to glitch and appear to enter first-person mode. You can see it in action here or in the GIFs below from A.xk’s YouTube streams:
It seems you can switch out of it, too.
Fellow YouTuber Peco released recreated the glitch.
They also made this clip made from first-person glitch footage. It’s stunning.
I do wonder if Nintendo will go back and release a patch.
