Hi There, 

I cannot find any request on that - but this is extremely painful experience to play DS on Nintendo Switch with no option to change button layout. 
You can change button layout for game - but not for menu of the game. A & B button are all the way around. 
There are lots of discussion over the internet - but no topic here :

I purchased game some time ago - and left it - as it is so abnormal and confusing to have B to accept and A to go back. 
Please if you could report that to the developers and enable option to change it. We can see on the menu that there is a possibility to change it - but it is locked for end users - only gray out and locked option for button layout.

Hello belialgoeth9! I'm going to forward your feedback over to the developers so that they can look into it :) 

You can also reach us through the support channels over here if you ever need any assistance!

Hi There Ricardo,

I did also raised issue with Support team, and reply was a bit disappointed.

This is a design choice, in order to match PS4 and Xbox controllers.
Meaning that the ok-button is below with the other 2 controllers and the back-button is on the right. For the Switch, this is inverted, but by changing it in-game, we match the PS4 and Xbox controller :)

So my reply on that was :
Thank you very much for the reply. I understand where is that coming from and why it is setup like that, but since that game was adapted to Nintendo Switch (which i am very grateful for) - it should be also adapted to such button layout.
Since there is an option to change it - but it is locked - please could you unlock this option  ?

Current Status :
Waiting for response, with tiny hope that someone could unlock option to change key map for menu control (only one which is locked)
