Nintendo is on a roll this year at E3 with yet another announcement that is a win for the company that just keeps gaining momentum. This time it comes via an announcement that the runaway hit, Rocket League will be coming to Nintendo Switch this holiday season, for those of us down in New Zealand that means sometime close to Christmas.
Nintendo Switch players will benefit from the same great content that has come to Rocket League across PC, Xbox One and PS4 along with some Switch exclusives. Exclusive Battle-Cars and Customization items will also be available, including Mario and Luigi hat toppers to decorate your car, with additional details to be announced later this year.
Rocket League will support all of the various play modes on Nintendo Switch, including TV mode, Tabletop mode, Handheld mode, both Online and Local Multiplayer, and be available for 1-8 players. It will also launch with Cross-Network support for players to compete against opponents on other available platforms. Additional details on the Nintendo Switch version will be announced in the coming months.
In case you have no idea what we’re talking about, Rocket League is a high-powered hybrid of arcade soccer and driving with rewarding physics-based gameplay, and will be celebrating its 2nd Anniversary this July. Boasting a community of more than 32 million players, Rocket League is currently available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Mac, and SteamOS via Steam, with the Nintendo Switch version to launch Holiday 2017.
