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

With more than 33 million players and counting, Rocket League is without a doubt one of the most popular and thoroughly enjoyable gaming experiences one can have in this day and age, and the soccer/racing hybrid sports game is set to keep the good times rolling on its Nintendo Switch version. The announcement was pretty vague, simply promising the "soccer with cars" game would arrive on Nintendo's new system, but the possibilities were obvious.

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.

If Mario cars are not your thing and you want something more mature and elegant for your Rocket League matches, Psyonix has you also hooked.

The Samus' Gunship battle-car comes in two different variations for the Orange and Blue teams, and they are based on designs of Samus' Varia Suits.

The upcoming Nintendo Switch version of Rocket League's Nintendo-themed exclusive cars have been revealed.

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

Mario, Luigi, and Samus-themed cars have been officially revealed, along with two boosters based on Mario's stars and Metroid's wave beam effects.

But the crème de la crème here, and possibly across all Rocket League special cars ever, will be the Metroid themed auto on offer, which looks like Samus' ship fused with the Batman animated series' take on the iconic Batmobile. The second exclusive Battle-Car is Samus' Gunship from Metroid.
