During the Sony CES 2023 press conference, Sony Interactive Entertainment chairman Jim Ryan announced Project Leonardo, a new accessibility controller kit for the PlayStation 5.
Project Leonardo features a circular base and a kit of interchangeable buttons and joysticks that can be fully customized to the player’s specific needs. It was developed “with key contributions from accessibility experts, community members, and game developers,” according to the official. Playstation blog post. Sony has released a video talking more about the project, and an image of the controller can be seen below.
The PlayStation Blog also notes that the PS5 Project Leonardo will allow controller users to fully customize controls across software, including mapping multiple buttons to the same area. Multiple Leonardo controllers can be paired — such as DualSense controllers — to be used as a single controller.
“Because players can customize Project Leonardo to their needs, there is no one ‘correct’ form factor,” Sony designer Sue Morimoto said in a blog post. “I’m excited that the design will be completed together with the players rather than presenting them with a single form factor.”
The blog doesn’t mention any official release information, including price or release date, only that the controller is still “currently in development.”
