To call the console launch of ‘Among Us’ a massive success would be nothing short of an understatement. It looks like the social deduction game involving stealth and deception received an overwhelming response from its console player base shortly after its release on the Nintendo Switch yesterday, and the numbers seem to agree.
In under 24 hours since its Nintendo Switch release, Among Us soared through the charts to become the #1 best selling game on Switch. The news was confirmed by the developers themselves through a tweet.
This doesn’t come as a surprise for most of us, though. Considering the widespread popularity of its PC and Mobile versions, it could easily be expected that the sales of the title would skyrocket when it finally made its way to the consoles.
Another reason behind its successful launch lies in the fact that the console version would support crossplay with the PC and Mobile versions, which means that players would have complete freedom to play with their friends regardless of what platform they were on.
