Nintendo LAN USB Adapter Close-Up February 21, 2018

Posted by Maniac in Site Videos.

Since the release of the Wii, Nintendo has offered internet access by WiFi for their new game consoles. This was at the expense of offering a wired Ethernet port, something that Sony’s and Microsoft’s game consoles still include.

While less convenient, wired connections are faster than wireless ones, and for long time multiplayer gamers like myself nothing beats a local match. In fact, wired LAN connections are required for consoles playing in an accredited professional tournament for a game like Pokken Tournament.

Let’s take a closer look at this thing shall we… in glorious 4K!

The adapter may look old and its manual may have been printed for the Wii console, but Nintendo assures all customers it will natively support the Nintendo Wii, the Wii U and even the Nintendo Switch Dock.

The adapter is not sold in stores, and the best option consumers have to get a first-party product is to buy it directly from Nintendo. If you live in the US or Canada you can get it here.
