Ghost of Tsushima Player Mods a Katana Controller for Some Epic Combat

YouTuber Super Louis 64 takes on Ghost of Tsushima's Mongols by only using a modded Katana PS2 controller.

It’s been just a little over a month since Ghost of Tsushima launched on PlayStation 4 and since then we’ve seen a new update featuring new accessibility options and a new mode, as well as some general bug fixes and also Ghost of Tsushima: Legends which is a new co-op multiplayer for the title. If that wasn’t enough to contend with, the Sucker Punch game also was the best selling title in Japan and also the USA. For all of you samurai wannabes who love nothing more than getting into some fisticuff action with foes, you need to check out this pretty awesome Katana controller YouTuber Super Louis 64 has modded for Ghost of Tsushima.

To use his full YouTube name, Super Louis 64 – Controller Bender loves to play games by using fun and quirky controllers. Previously, he beat Dark Souls by using a banana controller as well as taking on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild using a Ring Fit Adventure mod. You may initially think that this isn’t possible and he’s possibly a banana short of a bunch but looking through his videos, I’ve seen how amazing this guy is and more importantly, how much fun he makes the game. This time, however, Super Louis tries his luck with Ghost of Tsushima solely using a Katana that was originally designed in 2004 for the PlayStation 2 title, Onimusha.


Since the Katana controller was crafted for the PS2, Super Louis needed to mod it so that it would work with the PlayStation 4 and thus a new weapon entered the arena. After making some major readjustments, failing in some attempts at combat, and putting in hours of gameplay testing, Super Louis finally had his dream controller and feeling like a real(?) samurai, Louis was able to head out onto the island of Tsushima to take on the Mongols. Louis states in the video that he will never play Ghost of Tsushima with a regular controller again now that he has crafted the ultimate aid for his combat gameplaying needs.

To see how Super Louis modded his Katana controller and what buttons he has mapped – in case you would like to make your very own – you can check out the video embedded into the article, below. To also check out Louis’ other insane controller modding videos, head on over to his YouTube channel and take a browse.

Ghost of Tsushima is available to play right now and it a PS4 exclusive. If you want to order the game for yourself and see what all the fuss is about, you can do so through Amazon,
