Innersloth’s popular murder mystery game Among Us is coming to Nintendo Switch with cross-platform support. The news was announced during Nintendo's Indie World Showcase presentation on Thursday.

Among Us is a multiplayer social-deduction survival game in which players act as crewmembers in a spaceship. They need to work together to complete various tasks and identify the parasitic shapeshifter that replaced one of their crewmates. The Imposter’s goal, meanwhile, is to remain anonymous as he or she attempts to sabotage the spaceship or take out as many players as possible.

Among Us, which rose to popularity during the lockdown, was downloaded nearly 42 million times in the first half of September 2020, according to Statista. The breakout game of the year also picked up the awards for best multiplayer game and best mobile game at The Game Awards last week.

Innersloth is set to release a new map called The Airship early next year.
