A controller worthy of the underworld!

Nintendo Switch Is Getting This Gorgeous Hades Controller

The Nintendo Switch is getting a gorgeous officially licensed Hades’ controller nearly a year after it was released for the hybrid console.

The controller in question is being developed by PowerA. I have never always been a fan of third-party controllers. However, in recent years, the quality of the third-party controller has improved a lot.

PowerA is a third-party brand that I trust, and I own a Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild controller and it’s certainly one of my favourites. In fact, PowerA produces a number of quality officially licensed controllers. Yet, this Hades controller may be one of the best yet.


The Hades controller is covered in blood-red with icons from the game that fans will recognise. Then on the right-hand side of the controller is artwork featuring Zargreus looking very happy with himself.

The Hades controller from PowerA is not available to pre-order at the time of writing. However, it is expected to be released on September 17th this year.

Supergiant recently launched Hades on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Better still, if you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass, you can play the game at no extra cost.


In his review of Hades, our editor Olly said “Supergiant goes all out” in making it one of the best roguelike games of its generation.
