Sony Interactive Entertainment has revealed new details and images of the Access controller for the PS5 console. The Access controller, formerly known as “Project Leonardo,” is an all-new, highly-customizable accessibility controller kit designed to help many players with disabilities play games more easily, more comfortably, and for longer periods.

Developed in collaboration with accessibility experts, the Access controller will include a wide array of swappable button and stick caps so players can freely create different layouts that work for their unique strength, range of motion, and physical needs.

Each Access controller will include analog stick caps (standard, dome and ball stick cap), button caps in different shapes and sizes (including pillow button caps, flat button caps, wide flat button cap which covers two button sockets, overhang button caps which benefit players with smaller hands as they are positioned closer to the center, and curve button caps which can be pushed if placed along the top or pulled if placed along the bottom of the controller), and swappable button cap tags for players to easily mark which inputs they map to each button.

In addition to the hardware customization options, the Access controller features a myriad of ways for players to create personalized UI settings and configurations that unlock new ways to play.

On the PS5 console, players can select their preferred orientation for the Access controller, map different inputs to the various buttons, toggle buttons on or off, or even map two different inputs onto the same button.
