“You can activate Photo Mode during your adventure and capture epic and adorable photos of your journey,” explains development blog.
“Characters (including all rot!) will freeze by default once you enter photo mode, but you can ‘resume action’ to bring them back to life. As you rotate the camera, they turn their attention to you. Will keep on following and engaging with the camera as you set up your ideal shot.”
“There’s also a ‘Cheese’ button, which will make the character a pose in Shot Strike. “Many characters have multiple poses, so don’t miss out on a variety of fun shots all in one place”.
“During development, a lot of our attention shifted to the dynamic story moments, epic action and battle animations, and beautifully crafted cut-scenes, but we also wanted to focus on the rest of the characters,” the blog continues.
“Developing the photo mode and the cheese function were exciting animation opportunities for us! Not only does this function introduce a more entertaining element for players, but it also allowed us to show off character personalities as we developed each unique pose. “
