    Hi,

    Is there an Accessory which allows you to play Splatoon with Keyboard and Mouse? I imagine it to be possible somehow since you can turn off motion controls and set Camera sensitivty to +5, but couldnt find anything, so here I am. Even just looking around with the mouse would help. Any ideas?

    It's a WiiU game. There is no mouse and keyboard for the WiiU, as far as I'm aware. Even if there was, support would probably have to be hardcoded in the game, since a mouse would be able to rotate faster than the analog stick at whatever sensitivity.

    No, the game requires the gamepad even if you don't use the gyroscope.

    I know there are tools for other consoles which translate mouse movement into analog stick movements, I hope ther eis soemthing like that for the Wiiu.

    It has been proven that if you somehow connect the Wii U to a PC you can use an Xbox 360 or any controller, or possibly mouse and keyboard but as far as an adapter that allows it
    The game does support the WUPC but only for local multiplayer sessions, so that's pretty limited.

    That's unfortunate, looks like I will need to urtilize motion sensor and high sensitive camera to compensate. I hope the will add support for WUPC so you can use mouse+keyboard with the adapter.

    True but atleast he can use it for other games if he wants.

    Just to tell you it costs about 70 bucks for the adapter

    The guy that I'm referring to is the same one who unlocked new amiibos figures (Duck Hunt amiibo, for example) in Smash without the actual NFC figures, I know it's somewhere around the forum. That looked like some complex stuff for someone who'd want a plug & play device.

    Also, he used to post topics with quotes from movies rather than straight to the point titles.
