Among Us: Fan Gets It to Work on Nintendo Wii

Since its release in June 2018, Among Us, a multiplayer game that has been hugely successful since launch, has been made available on PC, mobile devices, and most recently on the Nintendo Switch. However, it seems that this has not been enough for its community, so much so that a fan has decided to run the title on the Nintendo Wii as well.

Furthermore, in 2021, it will also arrive on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S and directly on Xbox Game Pass, but the passion for retro gaming has currently taken over gamers.

One fan, in particular, decided to take matters into his own hands by attempting to run the title on the old console of Nintendo. Among Us players posted their results on Reddit and explained that they were able to get the game running on their Nintendo Wii thanks to streaming emulation via PC.

Basically, they connected both devices to the router thanks to two Ethernet adapters. Next, they used WiiVNC and TightVNC Server to stream Among Us to the Wii from their PC. The final result, it must be said, is not of quality, as the passage of data is extremely slow.

It is not possible to play in this format: it is more like a test that shows that it is indeed possible to start Among Us using the Nintendo Wii as output and the Wii Remote as a controller. The Reddit user admits that the whole procedure is not exactly very practical, and it is more of an exercise, in fact Among Us seems to run on the Nintendo Wii rather slowly and unstable as you can see from the video above.

After the user had managed to get Doom and Skyrim to work on a starting test, Among Us also arrived on the Nintendo Wii. It, therefore, seems that the imagination, but above all the patience of gamers is infinite, and we are sure that soon we will see some good ones.
