Does Tower of Fantasy Have Controller Support? – Answered

Couch gaming is no fantasy.

Tower of Fantasy, the futuristic open-world MMO gacha game developed by Hotta Studios, was first released to Chinese audiences on December 16, 2021. Almost a year later and a few rocky bumps along the way, players worldwide will be able to jump in and experience the adventure as the game launches on August 10, 2022 at approximately 8 PT ET for PC, Android, and iOS devices.

If you’re wanting to play as soon as the game goes live, the Tower of Fantasy official website offers pre-registration and pre-loading of the game and even rewards players who pre-register with in-game rewards based on the total amount of pre-registered accounts. At the time of this writing, Tower of Fantasy has over 4,000,000 pre-registered users and the numbers show no signs of slowing down.

PC players may be wondering if they’ll be bound to their mice and keyboards for the entirety of their adventures, or if they’ll be able to use their favorite controllers to play more comfortably. So, does Tower of Fantasy have controller support? Read on to find out.

Get Those USB Ports Ready

According to A Letter To Wanderers Vol. 2, Tower of Fantasy’s official newsletter from the developers, controller support has been confirmed to be functional by the game’s launch. We can expect the usual degree of customization for controller-supported games, such as:

  • Improvements to button configuration to be more in line with common configurations
  • Improvements to controller compatibility with the function menu
  • Functionality to customize button configurations for the controller

It appears that Hotta Studios intends for Tower of Fantasy to be fully playable using your preferred game controller, with further optimizations to come along the way. However, according to the Tower of Fantasy Steam page, the game has ‘partial controller support’, which may mean that players may either have issues using some controllers that they’d normally use, or that some aspects of the game may require players to use the mouse and keyboard at times.
