How to Reset the Camera Angle

First, we have to reset the camera angle back to its original position, at the back of our controlled character. This is by holding the ZL button then press the Right Stick (Analog).

Now, to reset the zoom and pan position of the camera:

For the zoom, while holding the ZL button, move the Right Stick (Analog) to up or down until the body of our controlled character are 35 to 45% size from the screen.

For the pan position, hold the ZL button and move the Right Stick (Analog) to left and right. The default pan position is the center, so try to maxed out both sides and figure out the center position.

That’s basically resetting the original camera settings for the game.

How to Change Camera Position Vertically

As explained above, to move the camera’s position vertically, simply hold the ZL button then move the Right Stick (Analog) to left and right.

Doing this will move the position of the camera up and down from the controlled character perspective.

How to Zoom-in and Zoom-out Camera

To zoom-in and zoom-out, simply hold the ZL button then move the Right Stick (Analog) to up and down.

Up is for Zoom-in, Down is for Zoom-out.
