Nintendo Switch Emulator Yuzu Now Supports LAN Multiplayer

Undoubtedly, Yuzu is one of the most feature-packed Nintendo Switch Emulators out there that just keeps getting better with time. This time around the developers of Yuzu have added support for local wireless multiplayer.

This new feature will allow players to play with each other or play against each other. The original switch emulator relies on the Local Wireless Multiplayer (LDN) service to scan for other consoles in an area using Wi-Fi. Once the scan is completed, consoles connect to each other.

On the other hand, the Yuzu emulator uses virtual rooms to allow users to join and create game lobbies. Yuzu boasts a complex server/client infrastructure that forwards a game’s wireless communication across the internet.

To enjoy local wireless multiplayer on the Yuzu emulator you don’t even need a  Nintendo account as the emulator doesn’t rely on Nintendo’s servers for its functioning. You can check out how wireless multiplayer gaming experience offered by Yuzu in the video shared below,

At the time of writing this article, this feature is exclusively available in the latest version of the Early Access release. Later down the road, it will be available in the mainline Yuzu builds as well.

Some mainstream games that have been tested and are working flawlessly are, ARMS, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Party Superstars, Mario Strikers, Mario Tennis Aces, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, Pokemon Let’s Go, Pokemon Sword & Shield, Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Super Mario Party, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection, and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.
