It may feel like you’ve just been circling the Underworld for eternity since news of Hades game merchandise last arrived. But at last, your wandering soul can rest. Because the, hopefully, first bit of promised Hades game merch is here. And it is the best possible kind of merch. The first announcement simply said that a Zagreus figurine was coming. But it did not mention we would receive a Zagreus Nendoroid.
Anime fans will tell you (and other fans might too) that Nendoroids are the superior form of fannish merch. These figures often come with multiple faceplates, a plethora of details, and a multitude of accessories. Not to mention they are so dang cute. You can’t help but fall in love with these adorable collectibles. A true blessing from the gods. Though a curse for your wallet.
Good Smile Company offers the following information about Nendoroid Zagreus:
From the critically-acclaimed rogue-like dungeon crawler Hades comes a Nendoroid of the Prince of the Underworld himself, Zagreus! The son of Hades has been carefully recreated from Cerberus head to fiery toe, and comes with two face plates: a standard expression and a slightly more roguish grin.
Nendoroid Zagreus is ready to fight his way out of the Underworld with a bloodstone and two of the infernal arms: Stygius, the Blade of the Underworld and Aegis, the Shield of Chaos. Also included is a bottle of nectar for Zagreus to give to his friends whether they’re in the Greek pantheon or the Nendoroid series. Be sure to add him to your collection, and set a place for him outside of the Underworld and on your shelf!
We stan a chibi Underworld prince. And honestly, we feel this is his true form anyway. Little Zag, we love him. All we need now is his boyfriend… Thanatos. Or his girlfriend, Megaera. Or both. Both, as they say, is good. For now, Good Smile Company has opened preorders for the Nendoroid Zagreus. Happy Underworld adventuring.
