Among Us

Among Us has been updated on Switch, bringing the game to version 2021.2.21. Today’s patch introduces what Innersloth says is a “small feature”.

Quickchat is now available. The functionality is “an easier, faster and safer option to play if you’re using text chat”.

Also note that Innersloth says Among Us currently has a glitch with lobbies, so players may encounter issues for just a short while. The team is currently working on a fix. A bigger update is planned for the game in the future as well.

Nintendo is back with its “Switch My Way” commercial series, this time featuring Among Us. Get a look at the advert below.

According to a new estimate from SuperData, the Switch version of Among Us sold 3.2 million copies on Switch during December. It was “the highest-earning version of the game for the month,” the report states.

That number is not official, so we do again need to stress that this is an estimate. Still, anything even remotely close to 3.2 million would be quite impressive.

We can say for a fact that Among Us has repeatedly topped the Switch eShop charts since launch.

Among Us wasn’t always the breakout game fans know of today. In an interview shared by Nintendo, Innersloth co-founder Forest Willard discussed the title’s origins.

Among Us went through quite a few changes during development. Willard said that players “would draw a role card and roam around a house aimlessly while ‘the mafia’ person secretly ‘killed’ players by drawing a finger across someone’s neck. The tasks also “changed several times” and the ship was initially “always in crisis while the crewmates attempted to hold it together and Impostors could do tasks wrong to hinder players.”

The same interview also touched on how long it took to create Among Us. Since the game was “originally so much smaller,” the team wrapped up development in about seven months.

Here’s the full interview from Nintendo:
