Rejoice Nintendo Switch fans! Rocket league is soon coming to your console, as revealed on this year’s E3 and it’s going to be a huge one. Psyonix revealed that the Switch’s edition is going to feature 3 iconic cars from Nintendo’s most famous IPs and we are already “heavy breathing”.
Nintendo Switch Battle-Cars will be available exclusively for Switch owners without additional cost and you can unlock them for bonus style points. First we have the ‘Mario NSR’ and ‘Luigi NSR’ battle cars which are cartoony Mario and Luigi themed vehicles with red and green colors respectively and their large trademark M and L logos on the front of the car.
If Mario cars are not your thing and you want something more mature and elegant for your Rocket League matches, Psyonix has you also hooked. The ‘Samus’ Gunship’ is a Metroid inspired car based on Samus Aran’s body armor with the classic yellow, green and red colors making it a sight for sore eyes. You can see the Nintendo Switch Battle Cars in action below:
Based on your team’s side you will be assigned either Mario NSR (for the orange team) or Luigi NSR (for the blue team). That also applies for the Samus Gunship where you get the basic colors for the orange team and a variation of blue Suit for the blue team.
Furthermore this new edition of Rocket League will feature The ‘Mario’ and ‘Luigi’ Toppers on any car, the ‘Super Star’ Rocket Boost for the Mario and Luigi cars and the ‘Wave Beam’ Rocket Boost for the ‘Samus’ Gunship’.
Psyonix stated that there will be more information about the game as we get closer to it’s release. Rocket League for Nintendo Switch will be available later this year, sometime during 2017 holidays. It will include crossplay for all platforms except Playstation 4 and also split screen for more coutch gaming.
