This is me playing #AnimalCrossingNewHorizions on #NintendoSwitch using XBox Adaptive Controller, moving joystick with my chin and switches with my head and hand. Thanks to @SpecialEffect for getting me in the game. Looking forward to seeing @beckyfr0st on #Twitch tomorrow! 🥰 pic.twitter.com/8yterSYAnb— EyeGazeGirl aka Becky (@beckyloutyler) April 2, 2020
The Xbox Adaptive Controller is a pretty fantastic device. It lets those with special needs enjoy video games by giving them all sorts of unique input methods. The controller works across all platforms, and one player is using it to enjoy some time in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Microsoft's Phil Spencer shared the story of Becky, a young player who's currently spending some time getting her Animal Crossing: New Horizons' island together. She's using the Xbox Adaptive Controller to control the action, and it seems like she's having a great time doing it. It's really awesome to see players of any abilities able to enjoy the content they like, and Microsoft certainly deserves a round of applause for their dedication to helping those players.
