⚠️ Attention
Currently, Local Wireless Multiplayer (LDN) is only supported between instances of yuzu.
Multiplayer between yuzu and a real Switch or between yuzu and other emulators is not supported!

Where can you get it?​

The Local Wireless Multiplayer feature is now available in the latest version of the Early Access release. The team will be working to polish this feature and make this available to the Mainline builds soon.
List of multiplayer games that are compatible include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, Diablo III: Eternal Collection, Super Mario, Smash Bros. Ultimate, Luigi's Mansion 3, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, or even all Pokemon and more.

In order to connect with other players, players simply need to join the same room within yuzu’s Public Room Browser.
But, before opening the Public Room Browser, you will have to first configure your network interface in yuzu.

You can find this setting under System -> Network and you need to select your internet connection from the drop-down as shown below.

Out of the box, you are provided with an assortment of public rooms hosted across the world by yuzu.
Creating and joining rooms is extremely easy in yuzu and can be done in just a few clicks.

If you’re a Verified User, you can create your very own public room for people to join.
These public rooms can be seen by anyone using the Public Room Browser, but you can also password protect them to restrict users’ access. Verified Users will have their forum nickname and profile picture populated in the chatroom.

Unverified Users still have the ability to create unlisted rooms, directly connect to unlisted rooms, and can join any yuzu hosted room.
