Nintendo exclusive Battle-Cars race into Rocket League

Samus! Samus! Samus!

Psyonix revealed some new details for the upcoming release of Rocket League for the Nintendo Switch. While we knew there would be content exclusive to the port, it wasn’t clear what any of it would be. That is until today, where Psyonix revealed what surprises were in store for Switch owners..

Behold not only the standard Mario themed cars, but also another franchise. A Metroid themed car.

The three cars, called the “Mario NSR”, “Luigi NSR”, and “Samus’ Gunship”, will be included for free, however they will need to be unlocked first. There is also an additional catch. The Mario NSR, along with Samus’ Gunship, is only for players on the Orange team. Meanwhile, players on the Blue team have access to the Luigi NSR, along with a variation of Samus’ Gunship that will be a classic color variation of the Varia Suit.

There are also several exclusive customization options. Mario and Luigis hats can be unlocked as Toppers for any non-licensed customizable Battle-Car. In addition, there are ‘Super-Star’ and ‘Wave Beam’ Rocket Boosts, however they are exclusive to the Mario and Metroid cars respectively.

I’m not too hot on the Mario cars, but oh my god I am in love with the Metroid car. It’s such a solid design, and it’s clear a lot of love went into the design for it. The team promises there’s more information to come as they get closer to launch, which is still holding a Holiday 2017 date.
