Update: Koei has acknowledged the need for mouse support and will update it in upcoming patch, this guide will remain for people… well, like to play with keyboard only because why not?
Note: This layout is just for example/reference purpose, not necessarily the best optimal layout, thus you might need to tweak it to fit your playstyle and comfort.
Will update if I find a better layout.
Controller Scheme used: Classic
Start = Key 2 = Open Map
Select = Key 1 = Open Main Game Menu
Button A = key E = Accept / Dodge Attack
Button B = key F = Cancel / Open Door / Action
Button X = key TAB = Open Camera Menu
Button Y = key N (or U or H) = Enter Aim Mode
Left Analog Stick = WASD / Movement Control
Right Analog Stick = IJKL / Camera Control
Left Analog Button (L3) = key X / Enter Photo Mode (also equals TAB + Q by this point)
Right Analog Button (R3) = key M = ???
Button LB = key Q = Tilt Camera Box Left (Aim Mode) / Parallel Walk Mode
Button RB = key O = Tilt Camera Box Right (Aim Mode)
Right Trigger = key SPACE = Take Camera Shot / Grab Items (Hold)
Left Trigger = key LSHIFT = Sprint (Hold) / Reset Camera / Lock-on
D-Pad Left = key Z = Switch Film Type (Left) / Photo Mode Menu Left
D-Pad Right = key C = Switch Film Type (Right) / Photo Mode Menu Down
D-Pad Up = key 3 = Photo Mode Menu Up
D-Pad Down = key 4 = Photo Mode Menu Down
You might need AutoHotkey to duplicate keys for convenient use, for example make LCTRL = key Q, which is responsible for Parallel Walk said above => Holding LCTRL will allow you to Parallel Walk with ease.
BONUS: you can try to make Mouse moves like Right Stick Analog, there is a program called reWASD that can do it, BUT you will have to paid unnecessary amount to use that program. Then just use Left/Right Click or scroll Middle Wheel acting as camera box tilting left or right, and taking photo shot with Space as above.
See? It is not even that difficult to implement mouse control, get your s*** together Koei !
