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.”

Have you ever wondered about which character has the most lines in Hades? How about the least amount of lines? And how many words were voiced in total? Supergiant Games provided the information to that and more in a new infographic today.

Here’s the full infographic:

A new update is now live for the Switch version of Hades. All players can access version 1.0.37119.

One of the main highlights of today’s update is the long-awaited cross-saves feature. That means after installing today’s patch, you can bring your progress from the PC version to Switch.

Supergiant Games also mentioned that today’s Switch update “includes various other improvements from our post-launch PC patches.”

There’s still some major functionality planned for Hades, Supergiant Games’ rogue-like dungeon crawler. Prior to launch, it was announced that cross-saves would be supported between Switch and PC. The feature ended up being delayed until after release. We last heard that it was planned for October, but it looks like that won’t be happening.

Supergiant provided an update today and said the team is “still actively working on this feature and trying to get the important details of it right.” Unfortunately, there’s no word on when it’ll be ready.
