Among Us launches on the Nintendo Switch – TechCrunch

Surprise! Among Us is now available on the Nintendo Switch for $5.00. The Switch version features cross-platform play allowing PC, mobile, and Switch players to play a game together.

The hit game just launched on the gaming platform after becoming a surprise hit during the Covid-19 pandemic. Originally launched in 2018, the game found an eager audience during the early days of the Covid-19 audience and its popularity is still soaring.

There’s a good chance one of my kids is playing the game right now.

The news came from Nintendo’s latest Indie World Showcase where the gaming company highlights titles from smaller companies. The company left this title for the end of the presentation. And for good reason. Among Us is without question one of the hottest titles available right now, attracting gamers from all platforms. Prior to the election Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used the game as a platform to drive voters to the polls and at one point, drew 435,000 concurrent viewers.

The game costs $5.00 and is now available as a digital purchase through Nintendo’s eShop.

As 2020 comes to a close, some parts of the startup world are completing a loop, ending the year where they began.n

Startup valuations, for example, as seen in the Silicon Valley area are effectively back to where they were at the start of the year. According to a report from Fenwick & West examining data through October in the San Francisco Bay area, the percentage of startups that raised up rounds (rounds priced higher than preceding investments) came within spitting distance of its pre-COVID levels.n

n

There are other positive signs in the data for startup bulls.n

""Median and average price increases for startup valuations in the Valley have both crested their 2019 averages. The gains have proven especially sharp amongst software startups, which managed somewhat epic valuation gains in October; Fenwick’s data, something we’ve covered before on The Exchange, lags the calendar month somewhat.n

This morning, let’s take a break from IPOs to look at startup health in the region still generally heralded as its promised land.n

Revenge of the bullsn

As optimism for business conditions u2014 tech-focused startups in particular u2014 improved in Q3, startup valuations kicked off Q4 on a strong note.n

In October, Silicon Valley startup investments that were pricedu00a0up from their preceding deal rose to 79%. That’s down from what Fenwick reports as 2019’s average, but a dip from 83% to 79% is not much. Notably, startups in the region managed to reach an up-round percentage of rounds in the mid-to-high-seventies over the summer, but during those months down rounds were 11% to 17% of the total.
