The original story (published November 04, 2022) follows:

Among Us is a cross-platform survival game where you must prepare your spaceship with 4-15 players online to win.

It has always been very popular due to its various exciting gameplay options such as adding imposters or other customization features.

However, it is currently having issues loading, especially on Switch consoles.

Among Us crashes on Nintendo Switch

Many players among us (1,2,3,4,5,6,seven,8) have reported an issue where they are unable to play the game on Nintendo Switch due to constant crashes.


Why can’t we switch users after the last update???? Just said error and I checked for corrupted data. No one is found. What’s going on???

@AmongUsGame Hello, I have a big problem I can’t start between us on my Switch it says there is an error and it’s only on my user among us on another play account, WTH!! !

The game does not go past the splash screen and displays a message “The software has been closed because an error has occurred”.

It seems that the recent update (v2022.10.25) on Nintendo Switch has broken the proper functioning of the game.

Those affected tried restarting their consoles and reinstalling the game, but to no avail.

Official recognition

Luckily, the Among Us crashing issue on Nintendo Switch has been acknowledged by the developers.
