Inspiring Gamer Uses Xbox Adaptive Controller To Play Animal Crossing On Nintendo Switch

Here's a really cool story we spotted overnight — a disabled gamer by the name of EyeGazeGirl on Twitter has been using the Xbox Adaptive Controller to play Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Nintendo Switch (courtesy of UK games charity Special Effect), moving the joystick with her chin and switches with her head and hand.

The Twitter user posted photos of her playing the game on Twitter, and Head of Xbox Phil Spencer later retweeted the post and commented with a single word - "Inspiring".

The Xbox Adaptive Controller was first released back in 2018, and serves as a "unified hub for devices that help make gaming more accessible." Through various mods, the controller can be made compatible with both the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. And we think Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a great use for it!
