Among Us, one of the most popular online games of the quarantine era, is scheduled to go live today on Nintendo Switch, complete with cross-platform play. Unlike discovering your best friend has been an Impostor this entire time, today’s announcement is a welcome surprise for Among Us fans.

Innersloth, the small indie studio behind Among Us, is riding high after a breakout showing at The Game Awards last week. Among Us picked up awards for best multiplayer game and best mobile game, and developers partnered with the show itself to reveal a new map that’s heading to players early next year. It’s called The Airship, and it mixes up gameplay just a little bit.
