Rocket League On Switch Will Have Exclusive Cars Based On Mario And Metroid
Players will be able to rep their Nintendo heritage within Rocket League.
Rocket League has become a major success since its initial release back in 2015, seeing countless players and even earning its own place among other big-name esports titles played for money and prestige at Major League Gaming-sponsored events. Fortunately for Nintendo Switch owners, Psyonix's popular soccer-with-cars titles will soon be releasing for the Switch, and it will bring along with it a selection of content exclusive for Nintendo's hybrid console.
Among many of the game's biggest features is its wide assortment of available cars, and Nintendo Switch players will be treated to three all-new cars based on classic Nintendo franchises. Two new cars in the game will be based on the Super Mario series, one clad in red and blue for Mario, and another in green and blue for Luigi. Cool as those cars might be, they don't hold a candle to the Metroid-inspired car, which takes its likeness from Samus' gunship, and has sleek lines and neon accents in a svelte golden package.
More than just fancy eye candy, the cars will also have their own special boost traits. Mario and Luigi's cars will feature the Super Star trail, while Samus' gunship-inspired car will feature the Wave Beam. Psyonix will also be including a number of Mario and Luigi-themed hats that players can use to further deck out their whips.
These new features will be all the more fun thanks to the game's purported cross-platform play, which means Nintendo Switch players will be able to proudly display their Nintendo-inspired cars in matches against the likes of Steam PC and Xbox One players. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, PS4 players will be left out of the fun.
While no firm release date has been announced, it's anticipated that Rocket League will be landing on the Nintendo Switch this holiday season.
