Random: Among Us On Wii? Sounds Kinda Sus

Dust off your nunchucks and grab your wrist straps, because it’s time to get suspicious old-school style: Among Us is on the Wii! Well, sort of.

“I got Among Us working on the Nintendo Wii,” declares Reddit user BurritoSOFTWARE on the unofficial Among Us subreddit, along with a video proving his claim: he is, indeed, playing Among Us on the Nintendo Wii. Incredible!

But wait! He follows up the bold declaration with a disclaimer:

Background on how this is done:

My Wii and PC are connected to my router with 2 ethernet adapters. Then, I used WiiVNC and TightVNC Server to stream Among Us off my PC to my Wii. This isn’t practical or anything, more of a [proof of concept]. It’s really slow too, even with wired conns.

Edit: Also how to type, I press 2 on the Wiimote and an onscreen keyboard appears.

Now, we don’t fully understand all this techy business, but we can infer its meaning through helpful commenters: it’s not actually running on the Wii, but streaming from his PC and using the Wiimote as a mouse. The framerate is so bad it might as well be a PowerPoint presentation.

Apologies for fans of Nintendo’s wiggle stick console – Among Us is probably not coming to the Wii any time soon. We hope we didn’t get your hopes up. You can buy it on the Switch, though.

What's your reaction?
