Hades 2 is now available in early access and is highly anticipated, following the success of the first game, which scored an impressive 93% on Metacritic across all platforms. The game marks the first time Supergiant Games has released a sequel and aims to build on the original rogue-like dungeon crawler and take it to the next level with updated gameplay and mechanics for an endless replayable experience.

The original Hades was released on all current platforms including PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch. So will Hades 2 get the same treatment and release on Nintendo Switch? Especially with the upcoming Switch 2 on the horizon?

The original Hades game launched on Nintendo Switch alongside PC when it left early access in September 2020, while it wasn’t released on PlayStation and Xbox until the following year. Currently, there is no expected release date for when Hades 2 will leave sooner and hit consoles. However, Hades 2 will likely be released on the Nintendo Switch alongside PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The Nintendo Switch 2 is rumored to launch in late 2024 or early 2025, so it’s possible it will skip the original console. of the newer platform.

When it comes to PC requirements, the minimum requirements for Hades 2 match the recommended requirements for the first game, both of which are incredibly reasonable and PCs from over a decade ago were able to run the game with few issues, so there’s no reason that the game could not run on the Nintendo Switch. The minimum requirements list a Dual Core 2.4 GHz CPU and 2015 Nvidia GTX 950, while the recommended requirements call for a Quad Core 2.4 GHz and more modern 2019 Nvidia RTX 2060.
