Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - LAN multiplayer requirements detailed

Up to 12 consoles in TV mode can be connected via LAN Play***, with one or two players per connected Nintendo Switch for a maximum of 12 players

***For LAN Play each console requires its own USB to LAN adapter, sold separately. At least two connected Nintendo Switch consoles are required for LAN Play.

From the main menu you need to hold L and R and then click the left stick to swap Wireless Mode to LAN Mode. You'll also need a router connected to the Internet in between the consoles (similarly to Splatoon on Wii U, it needs to 'authorise' online and then it runs a true LAN after that).

In other words, this is more of a tournament situation. You'll need to stock up on LAN adapters if you want this to happen!

I don't even know what to say about this. I can't make any sense of it. I mean, I guess if I take an outdated approach, I could say gamers eat a lot of pizza? I mean, doesn't everyone eat pizza? SOMEONE EXPLAIN THIS PARTNERSHIP TO ME!
