Rocket League to get Nintendo-themed cars on Switch

Rocket League to get Nintendo-themed cars on Switch

Psyonix has also said that Mario and Luigi-themed auto toppers will also be available as cosmetics in the Switch version, so it will be interesting to see what other Big N franchises are eventually given their due in Rocket League too. The "Mario NSR" shows up only in the Orange Team while the "Luigi NSR" appears only in the Blue Team. You can see the reveal trailer for the three cars down below. While we already knew the Switch version would have Mario-themed hats, we've learned via the Rocket League blog that it'll have cars based on two of Nintendo's biggest properties as well. Regardless of the color, the vehicle features the Super Star boost that leaves behind a trail of stars.

Rocket League Switch Has Nintendo Cars!

Players will be hoping that RNG is on their side, however, as item unlocks in Rocket League are entirely random. The Battle-Cars will be available as special unlockables when the game is launched on the Nintendo Switch this winter. "The second of the Battle-Cars is called the Samus" Gunship and is based on the hero from the Metroid franchise. The Mario and Luigi vehicles are technically one NSR auto that come in two different colors. The idea of Rocket League on the go is what makes the Switch a great platform. In addition, A Samus' Gunship battle-car will be available for the Orange Team, with a Samus Varia Suit variant coming to the Blue Team.
