Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story transports players to the whimsical and magical world of the fabled Bandle City that has been long familiar to the League of Legends universe. As this location has been long familiar to LoL players, the game can serve as a great starting point for those unfamiliar with LoL, its characters, and its lore.

As such, the game is heading to PC and Nintendo Switch in February 2024; the question arises as to whether the game features full or partial controller support. This guide discusses whether Bandle Tale will include controller support and how players can connect controllers to play this crafting RPG.

Is There Controller Support For Bandle Tale?

As Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story will be available from 21st February 2024 for PC and Nintendo Switch consoles, naturally, a keyboard and mouse would be the default peripherals being supported for the game's PC version. However, players are unsure if controller support will be readily available for PC and Nintendo Switch at launch, and we've got some great news.

At launch for the game's PC version, Bandle Tale will have full controller support as players can sync their PlayStation and Xbox controllers on Steam; however, they may encounter some issues through the Epic Games Store and GOG.com. Players can consult these digital storefronts' Support pages for further assistance regarding whether specific controllers are being supported, but the game does have controller support at launch.

For the Nintendo Switch version, the game also has full controller support, as the game's listing on the Nintendo eShop confirmed what controllers are compatible. Players who own Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers can link the controller when playing in Tabletop or TV modes, but they can use the Joy-Con controllers as their default gamepad.

How To Connect Controllers For Bandle Tale?

If players want to learn how to connect the Switch Pro Controller to the Switch from the HOME screen, they can navigate to the Controllers option at the bottom of the screen. They can select the "Change Grip/Order" where they must press the Sync button on the controller to pair it with the Switch console before hitting the "A" button to complete the process.

For GOG.com, players are to check the Bandle Tale game listing for the "Controller Support" tag to indicate if the game has full or partial controller support. Additionally, as games utilize the Xinput standard input, players must check whether their controllers use it or contact Customer Support for additional assistance.

When linking a controller on Steam, players can click the Steam icon at the top left of their screen for a drop-down box and select Settings before scrolling to the Controller tab. They can search for their controller below the Detected Controllers before registering it to their account, selecting their preferences, and clicking the "Submit" button.
