Pokemon Direct Reveals Player Controlled Camera

Pokemon Direct Reveals Player Controlled Camera

A placed called the Wild Area brings more than just overworld Pokemon to Sword and Shield.

In today’s Pokemon Direct, there was a reveal of a new exploitable area in the game that includes the ability to control the camera angle.

Explore the Wild Area and Join a Max Raid Battle
The Wild Area is a vast expanse of land in the Galar region with untamed wilderness. It is full of nature and connects several different towns and cities. Trainers will find a greater variety of Pokémon living in the Wild Area than anywhere else in the Galar region. The Pokémon encountered in the Wild Area will change depending on factors like weather or location, so Trainers might see something new each time they visit. While in the Wild Area, players can control the camera to explore the vast areas around them and search for Pokémon and items.

This feature is said to help trainers search for items and Pokemon. You can see this in action at the 7:49 timestamp in the Direct.
