How to change your control scheme
In some cases, you might not like the standard control layout associated with each controller. Thankfully, there’s a way to change that.
Go into the side menu and select Options. Then, select Controls. If you want to change the controls for all modes in the game, including World of Light, you’ll need to select the “No Name” option.
This will then bring up an option to select the controller you want to change controls on. Choose the option you want and you should be given the option to select your button layouts.
It’s worth noting that No Name will change the options for everyone playing on your system, while creating an “Enter Name” option will allow you to change the controls for just that person, instead of everyone.
