Hades Will Launch Without Cross-Save Between PC and Switch
Hades won't support cross-save between Nintendo Switch and PC at launch. However, the feature is coming in a later update.
Supergiant Games’ Hades is set to launch on Nintendo Switch and PC later this fall. The rogue-like dungeon crawler casts you as the son of the god of the dead and asks you to find your way out of the Greek Underworld. It’s incredibly good in early access on PC and might be something truly special on release. Supergiant wanted to bring cross-save functionality to the two platforms. However, due to some setbacks in testing, it will not be available at launch. Instead, it’s coming in a future update.

This is far from devastating news. Obviously, you’d love to have it out of the gate, but not having your early access save come with you to the Switch isn’t world-ending. Fortunately, Hades supports multiple save files. So, you can start a new save at launch and then convert your PC save over at a later date if you want without fear of losing a save. That’s soothing news for fans.
In the comments of their tweet, Supergiant confirmed that Hades is still only set to launch on Nintendo Switch and PC. However, they’ve yet to rule out other platforms down the line. Personally, I’d love to see this game hit PS5 and Xbox Series X in their respective launch windows. That would be a big get for either console maker, especially with how bare those launch lineups are.
For now, though, Hades will launch on Nintendo Switch and PC at some point this fall. We don’t have a firm release date yet, but it should be relatively soon.
