    I believe that the switch has an option to download game updates from other local consoles. Does that work with this?

    Sharing game updates are different from Download Play; it only refers to sharing game updates not the game itself.

    Well either this will be fixed really quickly by Nintendo, or it will blow up out of proportions.

    If this only allowed free online play it's one thing, but if banned/superbanned consoles can access this as well it's huge.

    Although i can imagine that most players will be hackers/cheaters. I guess that we'll see but this is very interesting.

    EDIT: oh wait, this is only lan. I read like it would be possible to play online with others around the world. xD

    I tried this yesterday in MK8 and it worked great. Just make sure you all are using the same patch of the games to be able to play together (latest is a good idea).

    It's on the GitHub page, but basically run the exe on a PC on the same network as your switch and put in the relay ip, then change the IP to manual on the switch wifi as stated on GitHub, then play.

    This program makes your switch think it's on the same wifi as everyone else connected to the same relay server.

    That's exactly what this does. It allows you to simulate a LAN connection over the internet. And there's really nothing Nintendo can do about it unless they released updates that took the "LAN Play" feature out of games, which will most likely never happen.

    Tested with MK8 works! but got communication error at the end of the race. This is great news!

    ALSO:


    If you are not banned be very very careful as the error for not being able to communicate with the other consoles will be logged and sent to Nintendo... they can figure it out if you are playing with a backup :v.
