Among Us is now also available on Nintendo Switch
Among Us, one of the biggest and most played games of the moment, has now also found its way to the Nintendo Switch. Rumors of a possible release on the console have been going around for quite a while, but players can now find the games on Switch after only being available on PC and on mobile.
Players who are interested in picking up Among Us for their Switch can do so for a 5$ price tag, the same amount players pay on Steam. Switch players will be able to play with their friends on other platforms. Because the game features some mechanics that are more difficult to do on the Nintendo Switch, such as typing for example, some changes had to be made to make the gameplay more accessible and easier to play.

When it comes to Among Us on Nintendo Switch, the game makes use of both the joy-con controllers on the device as well as the built-in touch screen. This can be tricky at first and typing on the Nintendo Switch is also considerably more difficult than it is on a PC or on your phone, so players will have to adapt.
It’s the first time Among Us has been ported to another console since the release of the game all the way back in 2018 for PC and mobile. Among Us has been topping the charts on Twitch for quite a while now, becoming a massive hit during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
