Rocket League on Nintendo Switch Announced, Cross-Network Play Confirmed (VIDEO)
At today’s Nintendo Spotlight E3 event, developer Psyonix announced that their popular competitive sports game Rocket League will be headed to Nintendo Switch after months of speculation. The teaser video, which you can view below, showed off a brief look at Rocket League Nintendo Switch gameplay, and offers a release window for the upcoming console port.
The Switch version of Rocket League will retain the same customization features and soccer-driving gameplay as the other versions of the game, but with added exclusives only the Nintendo brand can bring. These include Mario and Luigi hat toppers for decorating vehicles, as well as other new items to be announced at a later date.
Rocket League on the Nintendo Switch will also employ use of several play modes, including the console’s TV, Tabletop and Handheld modes and support up to 8 players for both online and offline multiplayer. Online play will also launch with Cross-Network play, meaning players from other gaming platforms will be able to compete in Rocket League with each other. The first few of these platforms to be confirmed are Steam and Xbox One versions of the unique sports game.
Additional information about Rocket League on the Switch has been teased by Psyonix, but the developer has decided to keep that to themselves for the time being. The game’s Holiday 2017 release should mean reveals will arrive sooner rather than later. What do you think? Is Rocket League a welcome addition to the Switch? Are you excited for Cross-Network play?
