  • Rocket League Switch Has Nintendo Cars!

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.

But the crème de la crème here, and possibly across all Rocket League special cars ever, will be the Metroid themed vehicle on offer, which looks like Samus' ship fused with the Batman animated series' take on the iconic Batmobile. You can see the reveal trailer for the three cars down below. Each vehicle will also have a special trail design, with the Mario Bros. cars using Starmen while the Metroid cars trail a Wave Beam. More specifically the Mario NSR, Luigi MSR and Samus' Gunship will be available as downloadable content in the future.
