Final Fantasy 7 Remake Buster’s Sword Controller Isn’t Handy, But It’s Extremely Cool

Final Fantasy VII Remake can now be played with a Buster Sword controller, thanks to the ingenuity of controller-making maestro Super Louis 64.

In a video uploaded to Twitter over the weekend, Louis demonstrates how his latest version of controller can detect inputs such as slashes, guards, and pushes while battling some of the game’s earliest Shinra guard enemies. The only problem is that push and swinging a giant, heavy sword to play a video game isn’t exactly practical, but that’s not exactly the point. Even though Louis looks exhausted after testing out the controller weapon, it’s still cool to see him in action and it shows just how fantastic Final Fantasy VII protagonist Cloud Strife can swing around the huge hunk of steel for hours as if it weren’t. problem.

It’s not the most extravagant controller Louis has ever imagined. His most recent project involved creating specific controllers for each of Final Fantasy XIV’s classes. This quest recently saw him create a book controller in order to play the Scholar class of the MMORPG, where doodling in the book in real life allows him to cast spells in the game. When asked when he was going making a controller for FFXIV’s Dark Knight class, Louis on Twitter said he may have had an “ulterior motive” in making the Buster Sword controller first.

Sword controllers aren’t exactly new to Louis, as he designed katana controllers to play Ghost of Tsushima and as a Samurai class in FFXIV. He also beat Elden Ring using a Rock Band controller, made a controller out of pizza, found myriad uses for Ring Fit Adventure’s unique exercise controller, and more.

If nothing else, Louis will be ready for the release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Holiday 2023, which will continue Square Enix’s narrative of the original Final Fantasy VII, but with updated visuals, more action-oriented combat, and more. some interesting wrinkles that can change the story of the game moving forward. Square Enix recently released Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, a remake of a once PSP-only spinoff starring Zack Fair. GameSpot’s Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion review called the remake “a must-play, especially for fans of the Final Fantasy VII saga.”
