Rocket League and Nintendo fans unite and rejoice! Psyonix has announced via their website that the Nintendo Switch version of Rocket League will be getting three exclusive, unlockable battle-cars: The Mario NSR, Luigi NSR, and Samus’ Gunship. Other unlockable customizations, including Mario and Luigi hat toppers, the ‘Super Star’ Rocket Boost, and the ‘Wave Beam’ Rocket Boost, will also be available.
In practice, team color dictates which of the cars you can use when it comes to these exclusive battle-cars. Players on the Orange team can use the Mario NSR and Samus’ Gunship, while players on the Blue team can use the Luigi NSR and “a classic Samus color variation of her Varia Suit.” All battle-cars and customizations will be free, but will need to be unlocked in-game by completing certain objectives.
Considering Rocket League is one of my most anticipated Switch games of 2017, knowing there will be exclusive Nintendo content at launch makes me even more excited for the game. To see these new battle-cars (partially) in action and in more detail, check out the announcement trailer and gallery below.
