Rocket League for Nintendo Switch will Include Samus Aran and Mario Cars

That also applies for the Samus Gunship where you get the basic colors for the orange team and a variation of blue Suit for the blue team.

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. The idea of Rocket League on the go is what makes the Switch a great platform. It also bears a neon booster trail, making this one slick looking vehicle to use. A new trailer has been released to accompany the announcement showing the Battle-Cars in action; watch it below...

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.


It's unfortunate but inevitable that the Mario and Luigi cars couldn't be their Super Mario Kart vehicles (those dimensions wouldn't have worked for the game.) There are, however, "toppers" of each brother in the Switch version that can be stuck on your roof. Likewise, the "Wave Beam" Rocket Boost is exclusive to "Samus" Gunship'.

The news gets even better, all three cars will be free when the game launches on the Switch this holiday season.

Seriously, pick up Rocket League.
