    Need an option to use southpaw controls. On the controller please. It's an accessibility issue for some of us. Adding this will help both left handed and accessibility-impacted players using controllers.

    I need this. Why can't I be left handed in Bedrock? It's by far my favorite Java exclusive feature.

    I'm not left handed but I agree with this

    I am deeply saddened that us xbox one users were forced to "upgrade" to the new bedrock version which, whilst providing more customization and integration with other players, has been a complete misstep. Not only is the game a lot slower to load than xbone version, there are a lot of features and ui design compromises been made to make this cross-platform that has ruined, imho, the flow and feel of the game.

    There are vast improvements being made from day 1 to now but still no where near what we had and still no southpaw? Just add it in already! It is so frustrating having to use the xbox controller app to change the controls for just this one game when there is no easy way of doing it from the menus. Then I must change it back to play all my other games!

    Why is this such a big deal? Just add it in.

    When playing with a VR headset as a left-handed I feel weird the controls as I have to use the right hand for the actions I usually use my main hand. Please add this option on Bedrock Edition!

    Minecraft VR is literally unplayable as a left-handed person, and it's the only VR game where I am forced to use such an horrendously unwieldy control scheme.

    I'm left-handed.  Is it so hard to let us have a left-handed character?  Java edition has no problem with it!

    This is so basic thing on vr gaming that its weird that one of the biggest games of all time adds an vr support but wont have proper customisation options. Vr gaming much different from normal gaming and people need to have possibility to use left handed mode. I have problem with my wrists so i would appriciate an option to change buttons as i want. At this time there is option to change key bindigs but they wont allow to use any oculus buttons that are already in use so it basically useles

    I agree with Death Invictus ! My left handed son is begging me for a left handed on screen character/skin that he can use while playing minecraft on Xbox one.

    +1 as a left handed person who for some reason genuinely takes issue with the fact that bedrock doesn't let me swap handedness.

     

    I think it's because Java really surprised me with the ability to swap handedness. It's really disorienting to play otherwise now.

    Please! Came from xbone. Very annoying that the "upgrade" degraded my controller config. Please implement this in bedrock.

    It would only seem appropriate to have an option for lefties to be able to control a left handed character. I just got Minecraft and I wanted to see about making my character left handed. I looked forever but didn’t see an option. I got the game expecting to express myself through my character and creativity. I feel that I can’t fully express myself. If this can please be changed to create equality and not exclude that 10% of people then thank you.

    Just spent over an hour trying to figure out how to change my character to left-handed and discovered the feature is only available in the Java edition and not Windows 10. Please allow players to set their player to left-handed, since many of us game with the mouse in our left hand.

    Just installed an update for bedrock edition, but after all this time (years, really) still no southpaw option. There are several other controller options that have been in this game forever and this one is an accessibility issue for some, how has it not been added??

    I bought minecraft for the switch to play with my son but without southpaw controls it's hard to move around easily in game due to my ceberal palsy. Please add in southpaw controls its 2020 idk why all games aren't adding the option by default

    This is a good idea. I'm a left, so Mojang please at least make the player able to dual wield anything in Bedrock like in Java? It would be so much better.
