  The new color seems to be part of a running in-joke at InnerSloth, the development studio behind Among Us. Bananas’ many appearances in the game have led to something of a cult following surrounding the fruit among its fans, and it seems InnerSloth is leaning into that with the Banana color. A discarded banana peel appears as one of many hats in Among Us?and is one of the more popular accessories in the game. Now, once the game is updated, players will be able to sport a fully banana-inspired getup. Seeing as player customization is such a large part of Among Us, allowing more room for fans to shape the appearance and identity of their crewmates is always a welcome change.


  InnerSloth has revealed several other new Among Us colors recently, including Rose and Gray. The Airship map, which was added into the game back in March, also provided players with new hats to choose from. Although mods to add extra customization options to the game have existed for quite a while, InnerSloth’s official additions come in preparation for an upcoming update that will increase the maximum players?per lobby from 10 to 15. As Among Us continues to grow and improve, players will have to keep an eye out to spot more references to bananas InnerSloth might just include.
