Dad modifies Xbox Adaptive Controller so his daughter can play Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Here’s something to warm your heart on a chilly Monday morning: a Dad from Jersey has built a custom version of the Xbox Adaptive Controller to let his daughter play Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and there’s a lovely video of her trying it out.

Rory Steel, head of learning centre Digital Jersey Academy, decided to create the controller after his daughter Ava struggled to play Breath of the Wild on Switch. Speaking to Channel 103, Steel explained Ava has HSP, a condition which limits her dexterity and makes standard controls unsuitable.

“We bought a Nintendo Switch for my daughter for Christmas, and she’s got fine motor neurone issues – so it’s great because she only needs to move the controller up and down – but when she started watching me play Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is quite a complex game but she wanted to have a go but the controls were too complicated,” Steel told Channel 103.
