Among Us, even though it was released in 2018, is one of gaming’s biggest breakout hits during 2020.
An online multiple-player game that can be played from across the world burst in popularity as people were stuck inside during the COVID-19 pandemic. Among Us became an easy way for people to cooperate with one another and have from doing it no matter where they were situated.
Originally released on Android and iOS in mid-2018, Among Us made its debut on PCs a few months later. It had existed on those various platforms ever since. On Tuesday, big news came out when Nintendo announced that Among Us is now available on the Switch.
The news dropped in a video on the official Nintendo YouTube page.
The fine folks at Among Us announced the news on Twitter, too, and included a fun detail: Instead of being a game that is exclusively played by folks on Switches, this version will have cross-platform capabilities, meaning you can pick up your Switch, fire up the game, and play with your friends who are staring at their iPhone.
The announcement comes a few days after Among Us took home Best Mobile Game and Best Multiplayer Game at the Game Awards 2020.
