I am always highly impressed by Super Louis 64's peripheral builds in general but the FF7 Buster Sword controller he created that actually works with Final Fantasy 7 Remake is truly something amazing to see in action.
It's done, #FF7R is now fully playable with an actual BUSTER SWORD! I just ironed out the last bug dealing with the guarding issue from the prototype.— Super Louis 64 (@SuperLouis_64) December 16, 2022
