How to play Nintendo Switch games online when you’ve been banned…

So you’ve been banned for whatever reason and now some of your games seem to be collecting dust since it happen. Well, there is some good news as tunneling is still a thing especially if the games have a LAN mode.

Tunneling was a big thing back in the Xbox/PS2/PSP days and lucky it’s never going to die. The way we do it may have changed a few time but the results are still the same.

Right now there are only a few games that can be played like this but that’s how it normally starts out. Plus the games need to have a LAN party option to take advantage of tunneling.

Compatible Games (tested):

✓ Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
✓ Splatoon 2
✓ Pokkén Tournament
✓ Titan Quest
✓ RetroArch (Retrogaming {Hombrew})
✓ Mario Tennis Aces

Tools needed:

· WinPcap
· switch-lan-play
