'Rocket League' on the Nintendo Switch gets exclusive Mario, Luigi-themed cars

To kick things off before the show starts Nintendo is bringing back the Nindies@Night event from 8

The Switch is receiving two exclusive cars themed after the Super Mario Bros. and the Metroid series. The announcement was pretty vague, simply promising the "soccer with cars" game would arrive on Nintendo's new system, but the possibilities were obvious.

Look for more information on our Nintendo Switch release as we get closer to launch! Players will still need to complete certain in-game goals to get them but there will be no paywall outside of purchasing the game.

For the curious, team color decides which version of the new Battle-Cars appear on the pitch. Depending on which team colour players choose will determine which of these two cars is used with Mario for the orange team and Luigi for the blue team.

When Psyonix announced that Rocket League was coming to the Switch, Nintendo fans rejoiced, as the game is one of best multiplayer games on PC, Xbox One and PS4. You can check out all of these cars in action in the trailer below. A Wave Beam Rocket Boost is exclusive to Samus' Gunship version.

No definitive release date has been locked down for the game yet but all signs are pointing to a release some time this year.

Rocket League can be played on practically every modern console, so in order to make getting it on the Switch something worth doing, they're digging deep into Nintendo's history.
