Hades Coming to Nintendo Switch

Published: August 18, 2020 12:09 PM /



Hades, which was been developed and published by Supergiant Games (who also developed Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre) is coming to Nintendo Switch later this fall.

The game has already been released on other platforms such as on PC, where on Steam it has a 98% positive rating, or a Overwhelmingly Positive rating from user reviews. It's still in Early Access, but players can still play the game, taking the role of the immortal Prince of the Underworld and wielding powers and mythic weapons of Olympus in order to break free from the chains that bind them to Hades.

The game features thousands of viable character builds. These include Boons that players can use to enhance their abilities. The game also includes a full voice cast of larger-than-life characters that feature famous mythological beings such as the aforementioned Hades, Zeus, Athena, Poseidon, and more. 

While Hades is a roguelike title that resets upon a players' death it's not a permanent reset for everything. For instance, guardian bosses will remember them, and the Mirror of Night can be utilized in order to grow permanently stronger, offering upgrades that the player will have to use in order to stay ahead of the curve. 

If you're the type of Chad to buy Hades on both PC and Nintendo Switch and don't want to start all over again, worry not, because cross-save will be supported between PC and the Nintendo Switch. Now you can be a god both at your computer and on the go.

If you're totally interested in checking out Hades, the game is available on Steam's Early Access here, or on the Epic Game Store. It will also be available on the Nintendo Switch later this fall, which may align with when it plans on leaving early access.
