Update Jul 26, 2022: The Hades Merchandise Collection is now available!


We're thrilled to announce that we've joined forces with Fangamer to bring you a new line of official Hades merchandise, ranging from plushies to pins, and from artwork to apparel!

Like all the merchandise we've offered in the past, these items were designed in close collaboration with our team. And, Fangamer has years of experience delivering great game-inspired merchandise to customers around the world, so these items will be easier to get a hold of than items we've offered in the past. This partnership means we'll no longer be fulfilling merchandise directly, and we have Q&As about what that means later in this post. But first, let's look at just some of the new items available right now!

Cerberus Plush

This notorious hound of hell is somewhat smaller than the real thing, measuring about 12" long from heads to tail. For maximum softness, the monstrous creature is filled with polyester cloud stuffing and covered in baby minky material. Designed by Nina Matsumoto and prototyped by Eyes5. (get it here)

Underworld Triptych Print Set

Bask in the dark beauty of the Underworld of Hades in this stunning set of three original full-color art prints by the game's environment artist Joanne Tran and art director Jen Zee. Each piece in this run of 1000 measures 18" by 24" and is printed using the highest quality inks and materials. Perfect for framing, and designed to be displayed together. (get it here)

Dusa Talking Plush

This plush of everyone's favorite House of Hades custodian / floating gorgon head is about 10" tall, wields a felt feather duster, and features a squeeze-activated voice box that emits one of dozens of generally anxious voice lines. Powered by three replaceable AAA batteries, included. (get it here)

First of the Furies Long-sleeve Shirt

Now you can always go the painful way in this long-sleeved shirt by Nina Matsumoto. The original design is printed on the chest and both sleeves by Forward, on the 100% cotton PC61LS from Port & Company. (get it here)

...And More!

Browse the full catalog for enamel pins, the original soundtrack CD, T-shirts, and more -- and stay tuned, because we expect to have new items available down the line!


Supergiant Store Q&A

While we have lots of exciting new merchandise now available, we are discontinuing service from our home-grown online merchandise shop at store.supergiantgames.com. Here are answers to questions you may have:

Q: Why have you closed your online shop at store.supergiantgames.com? A: We've always wanted to create great merchandise for our games, and since 2011, we've shipped that merchandise directly from our San Francisco HQ to customers around the world. However, the success of Hades plus many logistical challenges introduced by the COVID-19 pandemic meant we have struggled to meet the demand from our customers. As a small independent game studio, it's never been our ambition to grow to become a major online retailer -- but we still really want to offer official merchandise, ideally even more than before! We love designing physical items based on our games, and it's always been a refreshing creative challenge. Knowing there are teams that are better equipped to produce and distribute merchandise, we wanted to find great partners to work with who can help us play to our strengths. So, moving forward, our official merchandise will be available directly through reputable, trusted partners including Fangamer, Good Smile Company, and iam8bit. Note we plan to continue to use the store.supergiantgames.com domain to point to merchandise offerings from our partners.

Q: When and where will Hades merchandise be available? A: On July 26, 2022, Fangamer launched our official Hades merchandise collection, featuring a variety of all-new items as well as items we've offered in the past. Other official merchandise is in development from Good Smile Company, including Nendoroid Zagreus, Thanatos, and Megaera. We've been fans of these teams for years, and very excited to be working with them.

Q: How can I find out about any new Supergiant merchandise? A: Sign up for our email newsletter, follow us on Twitter, or join our Discord community to stay informed about any new merchandise or other announcements from us. You may also visit store.supergiantgames.com, where we plan to point to merchandise offerings from our partners offering official merchandise.

Q: Does Fangamer ship to customers around the world? A: Yes indeed! Not only does Fangamer ship worldwide from North America, some of the merchandise will also be available to order from their European and Japanese locations.

Q: When will merchandise from your past titles be available again? A: We're working with Fangamer to bring over select items of our past merchandise, which we expect will be available through them later this year.

Q: Will you be reissuing vinyl records for Hades or other soundtracks? A: We are working on this! We will announce any reissues via our Twitter and our newsletter -- please sign up for our newsletter if you'd like to be notified about new merchandise.

Q: What if I ordered something from your store and haven't received it yet? A: We are working to fulfill the last remaining store orders we've received. If you haven't heard from us lately, you can email support@supergiantgames.com for an update. We will no longer be taking new orders, and customer service for purchases made through Fangamer or other official providers will be handled by those providers.

To all our online store customers, thank you for all your patience and support over the years, and it's been our pleasure. We're really looking forward to this next chapter, as it will mean we can deliver more kinds of merchandise based on our games, and faster than before.

Hot on the heels of Nendoroid Zagreus, here comes Thanatos, a.k.a. Death himself, next in line to join Good Smile Company's line of super-cute Nendoroid collectibles! You can pre-order him now from Good Smile's official web site.

The pint-sized Death Incarnate includes his signature scythe weapon, an alternate face since he is sometimes known to smile, as well his trusty keepsakes, the Pierced Butterfly and Companion Mort.

We're very excited to get our hands on this figure, as we've long wanted to collaborate with Good Smile and see how they can bring our characters to life. And there's more where this came from, as Good Smile has announced Nendoroid Megaera is in the works, as well as shown the latest progress on the more lifelike POP UP PARADE Zagreus figurine! We hope you enjoy them all if you get a chance to pick them up.

Hades: Steam Deck Verified!

We recently got our hands on the Steam Deck, Valve's new handheld gaming PC, and worked to ensure playing Hades on it felt as smooth and seamless as possible. Here's a brief video of our audio director Darren Korb giving the game and system a try:

Hades has been certified as Deck Verified, so you can expect it to work great on the platform. Note that, when starting the game on Steam Deck, we recommend using the Vulkan rendering option for optimal performance.

As for our past titles, Transistor is also Verified, while Bastion currently is certified 'Playable', which is one step short of 'Verified' status and means it may require some settings adjustments to work optimally on the platform. Pyre has not yet been reviewed by Valve.

We've been excited to experience Hades and our past games in this new format! If you get a chance to pick up a Steam Deck, we hope you enjoy playing our games on it.

Update: The preorder period for Nendoroid Zagreus has concluded. Thank you for your interest!


We're so excited that Zagreus is joining Good Smile Company's legendary line of Nendoroid super-cute collectibles! You can pre-order him from Good Smile's official web site.

The rebellious Prince of the Underworld comes with accessories such as a Bloodstone and Nectar bottle, plus the trusty Shield of Chaos (for when the Stygian Blade doesn't cut it).

Collaborating with Good Smile on this figure has been a fantastic experience, and we were thrilled to see the amazing response to the Twitter reveal this week! Several of us at Supergiant own no small number of Nendoroid figures based on some of our favorite characters from games and anime, so seeing Zagreus join this fray is like a dream come true. Besides, statues of famous Greek gods and heroes have been around for thousands of years... seems only fair that Zagreus should also exist in statue form!

From all of us at Supergiant Games, we hope you have a happy and restful holiday season, and wish you the best in the year to come! We also wanted to take a brief look back at the year gone by. Here are the highlights!

Some chthonic companions, by our environment artist Joanne Tran.


Hades Everywhere!

Hot on the heels of last year's v1.0 launch of Hades on Nintendo Switch and PC, our big focus this year was to bring our most celebrated game to more places.

Earlier this year, we launched a physical edition for Nintendo Switch, the first time one of our games has been distributed worldwide on physical media. Then in the summer, we launched Hades for Xbox and PlayStation, including physical editions created in partnership with Private Division!

These latest versions of the game earned widespread critical acclaim, becoming some of the highest rated games available on the new generation of consoles. We're honored that Hades continues to resonate with so many players around the world!

Meanwhile, Hades continued earning prestigious awards, such as the BAFTA Award for Best Game (and four other categories!), the D.I.C.E. Award for Game of the Year (and four other categories), the Game Developers Choice Award for Game of the Year (and two other categories), and most recently, the first-ever Hugo Award for Best Video Game! It's been overwhelming!


Bastion Turned 10!

This summer marked 10 years since the launch of our very first game!

All seven of us who worked on Bastion are all still together at the studio, continuing to build on everything we learned back then. We couldn't have done it without you -- Bastion's success paved the way for us to make Transistor, which led us to Pyre, which led us to Hades. And here we are, just like that!

We're extremely grateful that it's continued to resonate with players around the world, and is now widely available on many of the most popular gaming platforms. The game's success is hugely validating for our team, and means we get to keep on making games together, which is exactly what we want. And while it's still too early to say what's next for us, we're eager to press on and find out. Thanks for sticking with us and for all your support!

Warm wishes from the House of Hades -- now a proud holiday tradition?!

Physical Edition Details

The new boxed versions of Hades include a complimentary download code for the Hades Original Soundtrack, featuring two and a half hours of blood-pumping music by Darren Korb, and a 32-page full-color Character Compendium booklet with artwork from the game by Jen Zee. The first pressing of these versions also features a unique foil cover!

Technical Details

The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Hades run at 1080p at a target 60 frames per second. The Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 versions run at 4K at a target 60 frames per second.

About Hades

Hades combines the best aspects of our critically acclaimed titles, including the fast-paced action of Bastion, the rich atmosphere and depth of Transistor, and the character-driven storytelling of Pyre.

Originally launched in the fall of 2020 for PC and Nintendo Switch, Hades has been named 2020's Game of the Year by more than 50 sources, including BAFTA, IGN, Polygon, TIME Magazine, and The Washington Post. It's also one of the most critically acclaimed games of last year (and our most critically acclaimed game ever), according to Metacritic and OpenCritic.

Playing as the immortal Prince of the Underworld, you'll wield the powers and mythic weapons of Olympus to break free from the clutches of the god of the dead himself, while growing stronger and unraveling more of the story with each unique escape attempt.

On this day 10 years ago, our first game Bastion made its debut in the Summer of Arcade for Xbox 360.

Our game's unexpected success meant our team of seven (at the time) could stick together and make something new. And stick together we did! We've since created Transistor, Pyre, and Hades, and we're as excited as ever to carry on and see what else we can make.

We wouldn't be here without Bastion and all the generous support it's received from players around the world. Thank you for playing our game and believing in our team.

We're very excited to announce that our Game of the Year-winning rogue-like dungeon crawler, Hades, is coming to Xbox and PlayStation consoles on August 13! It will be available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.

Coming to Xbox Game Pass!

What's more, Hades will be joining Xbox Game Pass for Xbox and Windows 10! This means Game Pass subscribers will have immediate access to the game on August 13.

The Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S versions are on a single disc, while PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions are sold separately. Find your nearest retailer on Private Division's Hades web site!
