The first Fisher-Price game board for kids has been modified to play Elden Ring

I never thought I’d write about a Fisher-Price game board for my kid again, but here we go: A mod turned the cheap game full of melody Into the full Xbox gamepad With everything you need to play Elden ring. Incredibly, it did so without missing any of the built-in Fisher-Price Game & Learn Controller sound effects – which means you can now pair your Malenia game with classic nursery rhymes like “1, 2, 3, 4, scores.” !” and “Orange, purple, white, pink, green, red, and blue, awesome!”

This might not be surprising if you’ve heard the name Dylan “rude” Beck before, because this is actually one of the less An ambitious controller stuns a New Zealander and has pulled Twitch Streamer – he’s the man who beats Dark Souls 3 With a one-button “Morse Code” controllerwas built Motion-controlled lightsaber and power gloves to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and forged Its own controls are flap, wobble, and honking to Untitled goose game. You can see all of those in the tweets below:

But rudeness says the edge That new Fisher-Price mod is one of his favorites, “just because of its clean look.” After some messing aroundhe was able to cram a full version of the Arduino Pro Micro in there, a gimbal joystick (since Fisher-Price’s original “joystick” was really just a button), and a few micro-transformers to turn the original clickable but not “shoulder buttons” Electric in real buttons as well.

All of the original Fisher-Price buttons still work, though – right down to Konami Code’s Easter egg – because the Arduino has been set to turn off their inputs by soldering directly to the pre-existing board. Yes, he mostly plays games with an actual Fisher-Price gamepad, not just using the Fisher-Price gamepad as a shell. You have to plug it in, though: “There’s not much room for the batteries unfortunately,” he says, because the Arduino takes up that room.

How can he take every Xbox button out of these limited controls, you might ask? Well, you can’t have it all at once. But he has equipped the Fisher-Price slider as a mode selector that can let you either left or The right analog stick at any given moment, plus access to the start, select, and steer buttons on A, B, and C. The “bumpers” can be bumpers and fire all on their own because they’ll press a different switch depending on whether you’re rocking them left or right.

Shameless says it was an uncertain project for two weeks, and she started as a joke: Wario64 bargain hunter Tweet That the gamepad would be “perfect for Elden Ring,” and decided to test it out. Unfortunately, there’s still no footage of Rudeness destroying bosses with a kid’s game board, but he says he plans to beat the whole game this way (he’s also making a YouTube video if you want to try it out as well). Total budget was $20, including the console itself – but admittedly it wasn’t the old 3D printer he used to make mounts to keep the joystick and switches in position.

I don’t know if I’ll ever build one of these with my now two-year-old’s pillow, but I’d be thrilled to see this big set of plastic and circles in the headlines again.
