When you look at games designed for the PS4/Xbox One, they tend to be more “serious” in nature, while Nintendo games on the other hand are more lighthearted and are designed for quick gaming sessions. Rocket League seemed like it was a good fit but yet it never found its way onto a Nintendo console, at least until now.
Announced at E3 2017, it seems that the developers behind Rocket League will be bringing the game onto Nintendo’s latest gaming platform. According to the developers, “You asked, and we listened! As we just revealed during the Nintendo Spotlight: E3 2017 Direct video, Rocket League is indeed coming to Nintendo Switch later this year! Rocket League on Nintendo Switch will have all of the same content, features, and updates that we’ve released on other platforms in addition to exclusive Battle-Cars and Customization Items, like Mario and Luigi hat Toppers!”
The game is also expected to fully support the Switch’s features and different play modes, so whether you want to play it docked, in handheld mode, or tabletop mode, or online, or local multiplayer, those options will all be available to you. There is even support for cross-platform play, so Switch gamers will be able to play with those on the Xbox One or Steam.
Rocket League for the Nintendo Switch is currently set for a release in holiday of 2017, but no specific dates were mentioned, but we should find out soon enough. In the meantime you can check out the announcement trailer above.
