A Look At The Bluetooth Controller Designed For Gamers With Limited Mobility

8BitDo, in tandem with a dad and his young son with muscular atrophy type 2, is launching a Bluetooth controller for gamers with limited mobility. The Lite SE works with the Nintendo Switch and Android, and is available for preorder for $34.99. The ship date is July 15th.

The Lite SE is designed for use either as a handheld or lying flat on a table. Instead of trigger and bumper buttons, the controller uses L1, L2, R1, and R2 buttons located on the front. L3 and R3 have their own buttons instead of using an analogue stick, and all of the inputs are more sensitive and easier to press. There’s also an anti-mat slip on the back of the Lite SE which stops it from sliding around when used lying flat.

It is not yet known whether the Lite SE supports remapping or customizations, or whether it will work with systems/consoles/platforms other than the Switch and Android. It is also unclear whether the controller supports rumble, near-field communication, or motion controls, but we should find out sooner than later.
