Hades, the roguelike hack-and-slash from Supergiant Games, has recently received official classification in South Korea. While that means the game will likely see a release in the country, it also gives hope for those looking for a PlayStation 4 version of the critically acclaimed title.
In the official classification, Hades received a rating of being for everyone aged 15 or older due in part to its “realistic or fantasy representation of violence” and its use of “red blood and physical damage.” Most notably, it says the game is rated on PlayStation 4, which is a new platform for the roguelike.
As of yet, Hades hasn’t released on any systems outside of the Nintendo Switch and PC. While Supergiant Games hasn’t spoken much about a release outside of those two systems, the game being officially rated in South Korea for the system suggests that a PlayStation 4 release could be arriving sooner rather than later.
In Hades, players take on the role of Zagreus, the prince of the Underworld, who is trying to escape the realm to get away from his father, Hades, and reach Mount Olympus. Along his journey, Zagreus meets a variety of Olympians, who grant him special abilities in his various trips through the Underworld. In true roguelike fashion, players can attempt to make it through randomly generated levels of the Underworld while they face off against enemies trying to send them back to Hell.
