Whelp, looks like I’m buying Rocket League again. Honestly, who didn’t see this coming?
The game was announced for the Nintendo Switch a while back, and now we have a fresh trailer and some news regarding the platform-exclusive features. Here’s the clip.
As for the details regarding all the new content bound for the Switch version of Rocket League? Developer Psyonix did up a post on their official site to highlight what’s good. It turns out the car selection is up to the team color that you land on. Here’s the skinny on that and some of the customization stuff that’s due with the release.
For the curious, team color decides which version of the new Battle-Cars appear on the pitch. Players on the Orange team can use the ‘Mario NSR’ and ‘Samus’ Gunship,’ while Blue team members automatically equip the ‘Luigi NSR’ and a classic Samus color variation of her Varia Suit. Though both vehicles are FREE on Nintendo Switch, players will still need to unlock them in-game by completing certain requirements. More details on those later this year!
Along with the new Battle-Cars, Rocket League on Switch will also have several exclusive customization items. The ‘Mario’ and ‘Luigi’ Toppers (hats) can be used on any non-licensed customizable Battle-Car, while the ‘Super Star’ Rocket Boost can be used with the ‘Mario NSR’ and ‘Luigi NSR’ cars. Likewise, the ‘Wave Beam’ Rocket Boost is exclusive to ‘Samus’ Gunship.’
All of this is awesome. We still don’t have a precise release date for Rocket League on the Nintendo Switch, but we do know that it’s set to launch this holiday. Stay tuned for more on the port as it comes.
