Hades updated with cross-save for PC & Switch

Supergiant Games’ Hades has been earning plaudits left, right and centre, but there’s been one long promised and much requested feature that it’s been missing: cross-save. The team have been working on it since launch and now, with an update to the game on Nintendo Switch, Hades supports cross-save between PC and Switch.

The update also rolls in the post-launch improvements that have been made on the PC version of the game.


While the game is a roguelite, there’s a deep story woven into it and progression that players will no doubt want to keep. Those tempted into double-dipping and buying the game on both Switch and PC can now take their progress with them.

Supergiant do warn that you’ll want jump through the hurdle of ensuring that your save data is in a different slot on the game, however.

Hades is easily one of the most highly regarded games of 2020, with a great critical reception that’s seen it appear in more than a few Game of the Year lists and awards. Hades tells the story of Zagreus, son of the titular god of the underworld, fighting time and again to try and escape, with each defeat sending him right back to the start to try again.

After two long years in Early Access on Steam, the game launched in September for PC and Nintendo Switch, with the hybrid console getting some preferential treatment over the home consoles. That led many to wonder…

We awarded it a simply sublime 10/10, and you can catch more of Jason’s words in our Hades review.

“Hades is one of the best roguelites of all-time. It’s a phenomenal achievement in story telling, gameplay, and an absolute treat for both your eyes and ears. It’s astounding, and it’s always been fairly astounding through Early Access, but this final release cements it as one of the greats. If you like roguelites, and even if you don’t, you should probably get in on this as soon as you can.”
