Hades is a roguelike action role-playing video game developed and published by Supergiant Games; and it’s now available Nintendo Switch.
‘Hades’ – Here’s what you need to know
The game is set in the backdrop of Greek Mythology and lore. You control Zagreus, the son of Hades as he embarks on a mission to crawl his way out of the Underworld.
Now that may sound simple enough but know that you may end up dying a few times. There are several enemies, pathways, and bosses that will make sure you remain in Hades.
This is version 1.0 of Supergiant’s early access game, and staff members hosted a Reddit on AMA on the 22nd of September to celebrate. They prompted fans to ask them anything concerning the game.

The game is available on Nintendo Switch and has been getting great reviews. Paul Tassi, a senior contributor for Forbes, even went as far as saying that it’s “Quietly Become One Of The Best Reviewed Games Of The Year”.
“If you haven’t checked it out yet, it might be the time to. ‘Hades’ has been in early access for a long time now, but its true “release” is here, and now it’s attracting the attention it deserves”.
The game was previously released for PC but is now available on Nintendo Switch, making it more accessible to gamers who are curious about this dungeon crawler.

The environment of the game is detailed, and Zagreus has many chances to try and escape as he continuously dies. He has access to an array of weapons, and the trick is to find what weapon works best for each player.
It’s a game that will be hard to put down as it targets your “Let me try just one more time” psyche. It’s a brilliant way to get lost and spend hours in the world of the Underworld.
Nintendo Switch did release the launch trailer on their Youtube channel. So you can see exactly what all the hype is about. Along his tortuous journey, he will encounter several Greek gods and goddesses like Dionysus, Artemis, Ares, and Athena.
The game is doing exceptionally well as more amazing reviews and love pour in. It’s one all Nintendo switch users should check out.
