Hades Zagreus Nendoroid

A new Hades Nendoroid is in the works based on main character Zagreus, Good Smile has announced. Specifics of the figure haven’t been detailed. There’s also no word on release timing just yet. However, we do have a concept image above.

That’s not the only new figure product for Hades. As part of WonHobby 33 in May, we learned that Zagreus is getting a Pop Up Parade figure. We’re also waiting on further updates pertaining to this particular product.


The rogue-like dungeon crawler Hades has earned a great deal of praise and attention since its proper launch back in September. One of the aspects players have focused on are the characters, which have spawned plenty of fan art.

Greg Kasavin, who’s behind Hades’ writing and design, spoke about the response to the game’s characters in a previous issue of EDGE. He had this to say on that topic:


Hades, Supergiant Games’ wildly successful god-like rogue-like dungeon crawler, almost went in a different direction. Co-founder Amir Rao revealed in a talk on the social app Clubhouse that early concepts didn’t feature Zagreus. Instead, it would have revolved around Theseus.

Theseus is in the game, but not in the starring role. Creative director Greg Kasavin ultimately came up with the idea to keep what Supergiant had already created, “but recast it as Zagreus.” Rao added, “I think a day or two he had convinced everyone that it was a better idea.”
