Rocket League was announced for the Nintendo Switch at E3 earlier this year, where Psyonix revealed that the game would include exclusive customization options and Battle-Cars for the platform. Delivering on that promise, the developer showed off the upcoming cars for the first time today with a new trailer, seen above.
The Switch is receiving two exclusive cars themed after the Super Mario Bros. and the Metroid series. Both Battle-Cars have specific themes that are used depending on the player's team. The 'Mario NSR' shows up only in the Orange Team while the 'Luigi NSR' appears only in the Blue Team. The same is true for the "Samus' Gunship" Battle-Car, arriving with two designs based on different Varia Suits of Samus Aran.
Platform exclusive Battle-Cars aren't a new addition to the series, with the PlayStation 4 version receiving the 'Sweet Tooth' car, along with Armadillo and Hogsticker cars for the Xbox One version.
Both Switch exclusive cars will be free to all Rocket League owners on the platform, however, just as the other platform exclusive Battle-Cars, players will need to meet some requirements to unlock them.
While the developer promised more details on these requirements at a later date, unlocking the exclusive cars on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms was achieved through winning an online match with every single car available in the game, and completing a single-player season. It's fair to assume that the Switch version will follow the same unlock methods.
Rocket League on the Nintendo Switch currently has a holiday 2017 launch window, coming with local wireless multiplayer and cross-play capabilities between the PC and Xbox One versions of the game.
