Rocket League is already at the top of our games list and has been for years now. The game has evolved and upgraded (with FREE DLC regularly) and continues to acquire new fans at a blazing pace.
The moment the Nintendo Switch was announced, we began to speculate/dream on the games that we might one day have access to on-the-go. Then, at E3 2017, Nintendo dropped the bomb on us all with their HUGE announcement that Rocket League would be headed to the Switch and we’re inching closer to a release date every day.
Today, they took us one step closer and blew our minds once again…..
EXCLUSIVE NINTENDO SWITCH BATTLE-CARS COMING TO ROCKET LEAGUE
As the holiday season draws closer, so too does Rocket League on Nintendo Switch!
As revealed in our Nintendo Direct E3 2017 trailer, Rocket League will indeed have exclusive customization items and Battle-Cars for that version of the game, and today we are excited to announce that the ‘Mario NSR,’ ‘Luigi NSR,’ and ‘Samus’ Gunship’ vehicles will be FREE unlockable Battle-Cars at launch!
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.’
Look for more information on our Nintendo Switch release as we get closer to launch!
