  • Rocket League Switch Has Nintendo Cars!

On Wednesday, Rocket League - the popular soccer with cars video game that's become one of the most popular multiplayer games - announced it was bringing Super Mario and Metroid cars to the game. Metroid's Samus Gunship Battle-Car, which comes in two variations based on Samus' Varia Suits, will also get a unique boost called Wave Beam.

Psyonix made sure to state that all three cars will be available for free as special unlockables in the Nintendo Switch version of Rocket League. It also bears a neon booster trail, making this one slick looking vehicle to use.

The Mario themed cars are actually just one new type of auto, and players who use it will alternate between the Mario and Luigi versions, depending on what team they are placed on. The developer said that players will earn them "in-game by completing certain requirements", with the studio promising more details to come in the future.
