Kuumeri, who has previously created one-handed adapters for the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller and Xbox series controllers, commented that the Joy-Cons are the easiest to adapt.
Kuumeri took advantage of this when creating a Joy-Con adapter, allowing one of the Joy-Cons to be flipped over and the left stick pressed against the other side to move the character around like in Breath of the Wild. make it possible. He also inverts the inputs (so left is left and right is right) so he can use 3D-printed connectors to control the triggers and face buttons.
Kuumeri, who spoke to IGN about his DualSense adapter in January, said that Sony itself hasn’t done anything about accessibility, so they’ve started modding the one-handed adapter.
