How to remove the HUD in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Surely there are few games on Nintendo Switch more beautiful and immersive than The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Like its predecessor, this title houses a wonderful world to explore and you may want to dive into it and forget about everything around you. But... what about the information that appears on the screen?

Some players find that the HUD, or the information on the screen, can be somewhat annoying and cause them to lose immersion in the world. Fortunately, Nintendo has thought about those players and the title includes the ability to disable the HUD. Don't know how to do it? We tell you about it in this entry of our complete guide.

How to remove the HUD?

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom's on-screen information can be made invisible so it doesn't get in your way. If you want to disable the HUD, you can do so from the game settings. To do this you must follow these steps :

  • Press the + button on your controller to open the saddlebag menu.
  • Now use the R button to scroll through the sections all the way to the right.
  • You have to move to the tab with the gear symbol.
  • When you reach this tab, you will be in the "Menu" options; select "Settings".
  • Within the settings, scroll to the "On-screen information" option.

By default, this option is activated in the "Normal" parameter, but if you prefer to disable all icons and indicators on the screen you must change it to "Reduced".

Setting the HUD to "Reduced" will omit all on-screen data. While the "Normal" preset is great for new players, allowing you to see important details at all times, other users may prefer to skip all of this in favor of greater immersion. The result of disabling the HUD is the following:
