Does Tchia have customizable controls?

Yes. Tchia‘s controls are fully customizable on PlayStation 5. It does not, however, have a layout of the controller buttons within its menus. The settings menu is divided into three tabs: General, Audio, and Input Bindings. Input Bindings is where you’ll be able to customize the controls to your liking. The tab is divided by activity, giving you an incredible amount of options in how you’ll control the game.

Those activities include:

  • Movement & Camera
  • Items & Abilities
  • Map
  • Ukulele
  • Film Camera
  • Menus Navigation
