Supergiant Games’ award-winning, conversation-dominating roguelike, Hades, has finally received its long-promised cross-save feature today.

Hades has been an immense success, already selling well over 1,000,000 copies across PC and Nintendo Switch. The game quickly became one of the highest-rated titles of the year after a stealth launch via a Nintendo Direct Mini back in September.

The game was supposed to arrive with the ability to transfer saves between Switch and PC at launch, but the feature was postponed to prevent delaying the entire game. Now, three months after the game officially left early access, the cross-save feature is finally available.

In order to get your cross-save working properly, all you need to do is boot up the game on your Nintendo Switch, select ‘Cross-saves’ from the main menu, then link your Steam or Epic Games account to the file.

The rest will work itself out. The December 1 Post-Launch patch (full patch notes at the link) also adds some other improvements to the game that have already been applied to the PC version of the title.

Balance changes (more critical chance on a few weapons), environment improvements, animation updates, bug fixes more have been added to the game – making it just that bit sweeter to play.
