During the December 2020 Indie World Showcase, developer Innersloth announced that Among Us is available now on Nintendo Switch, joining PC and mobile players for some suspicious multiplayer action.
Perhaps there was a time when Among Us needed an introduction, but I’m not sure that time is now. The game has gained wide success for its accessible systems yet deep strategy. During gameplay, players will join others on a map filled with tasks. These tasks typically revolve around timed events that prove you are trying to help your crew. However, among these workers is someone looking to sabotage the mission and kill everyone without getting caught.
The goal of the game is to get away with murder. During rounds, someone among the group is a bad guy, but they have to try to keep that a secret. As people die, meetings can be called where the players discuss the events and try to choose the killer. It’s very much like Warewolf, but some unique elements make it rather addictive and fun. Additionally, players can customize their characters with accessories, which everyone seems to love.
The game is available on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $5.00 and features cross-play with other players.
