Final Fantasy 7 Remake Buster Sword Controller Isn’t Practical, But Is 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 shows how his latest controller build can detect inputs like slashes, guards, and thrusts while battling some of the game’s early Shinra guard enemies. The only problem is thrusting and swinging a giant, heavy sword to play a video game isn’t exactly practical, but that’s not exactly the point. Even if Louis looks worn out after testing out the controller weapon, it’s still cool to see it in action and just goes to show how fantastical it is that Final Fantasy VII protagonist Cloud Strife can swing around the massive piece of steel for hours like it’s no problem.

That quest recently saw him create a book controller in order to play the MMORPG’s Scholar class, where scribbling in the book in real life allows him to cast spells in-game. When asked when he was going to craft a controller for FFXIV’s Dark Knight class, Louis on Twitter says he may have had an “ulterior motive” in making the Buster Sword controller first.
