Among Us Joins the Super Smash Bros. Battle in a Fanmade Mod
Prepare to kill your fellow Super Smash Bros. crewmates in this excellent mod, which brings Imposter from Among Us to the game.
Japanese Twitter user ImposterSSB created quite the extensive game mod — by inserting the Among Us Imposter into Super Smash Bros. If you were wondering just how much effort has been put into this mod, the 14 minute video not only has an invitation opening segment but also a mock trailer showing off their moveset with some humorous flare. Just like in official fighter reveals:
After that there’s a detailed video guide on how to use Imposter, including a breakdown of their entire moveset. My personal favorite is their Neutral Special, which is the infamous gun attack the Imposters can use in Among Us to kill their crewmates.
The amount of effort and talent it takes to not only implement such an extensive mod but a 2D one at that, especially one that interacts so cleanly with the actual combatants. Hopefully this inspires Nintendo to possibly introduce one of these little guys as an official fighter in the future. Meanwhile you can download and install the mod itself by going here (keep in mind this mod is made for Brawl, not Ultimate).
Innersloth, Among Us‘s developer, has released a recent devlog detailing future plans on the studio roadmap, as well as revealing more information on the content that players can expect to see throughout this year. The post touches on some of the bigger updates as well as some smaller tidbits of information.
The studio also confirmed the new “Airship” map is still on track to be released in early 2021 and is set to feature new tasks to complete, rooms to explore, and costumes for the adorable little crewmates. You can also expect to have the ability to choose what room you start in and will be able to climb ladders. When this update becomes available, it will be free to all players.
Among Us has been doing quite well, as it was at the top of the Switch download charts during its month of release. The incredibly popular title topped the download charts within 24 hours, just days before it was reported to have had half a billion players in November alone.
