Rocket League Arrives on Nintendo Switch Next Month
Rocket League will release on 14th November in Europe / North America for the Nintendo Switch, it’ll cost $19.99USD on the eShop.
Rocket League is a vehicular soccer video game developed and published by Psyonix. The game was first released for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4 in July 2015, with ports for Xbox One, macOS, Linux, and Nintendo Switch being released later on. In June 2016, 505 Games began distributing a physical retail version for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment taking over those duties by the end of 2017.
Described as “soccer, but with rocket-powered cars”, Rocket League has one to four players assigned to each of the two teams, using rocket-powered vehicles to hit a ball into their opponent’s goal and score points over the course of a match. The game includes single-player and multiplayer modes which can be played both locally and online, including cross-platform play between the PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows versions, as well as cross-play between Xbox One, Switch, and Windows versions. Later updates for the game enabled the ability to modify core rules and added new game modes, including ones based on ice hockey and basketball.

“Though most people have praised the Switch (myself included), one of the biggest sticking points with critics has been its limited roster of must-have games. Of course, this is understandable since the console only launched about six months ago, but the addition of “Rocket League” only makes the Switch a better sell. Two of the biggest hits on the Nintendo Switch currently, “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” and “Splatoon 2,” encourage people to play with and against each other, thereby taking advantage of the Nintendo Switch’s unique multiplayer capabilities. “Rocket League” fits that bill in a similar fashion, and it’s also a proven winner on other consoles, meaning it’s easy to recommend before it’s even released.
For the Nintendo Switch version, “Rocket League” maker Psyonix created some new cars themed after Nintendo’s most famous mascots, including Mario, Luigi, and Samus Aran of “Metroid” fame — all three of these cars are featured in Psyonix’s new teaser for the game, which it released on Wednesday night.”
