Rocket League on Switch will have the same features as other versions, other news

Posted on June 19, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

IGN has more on the new Switch version of Rocket League. The site spoke with Psyonix vice president Jeremy Dunham and producer Bobby Garza about the game.

Psyonix is including all features from other versions on Switch. This includes Season mode, Hoops, Drop Shot, Rumble, and Snowday. Up to eight Switch units will be supported with local multiplayer, and up to four players to play splitscreen when the Switch is docked and two when undocked.

We’ve heard that the team is targeting 60 frames per second on Switch. That includes splitscreen as well, but we won’t know for sure until release. Other potential features like motion control and HD Rumble are also undecided.

Garza also touched on how games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and ARMS inspired them in developing Rocket League for Switch:

“The fact that they’re getting 60 fps docked and undocked, even in splitscreen [with two players in Mario Kart 8] is a huge thing for us. And then how seamless the multiplayer experience is. Their lobby system isn’t as complex as ours, but it’s so easy to use.”

“We weren’t entirely sure it (local multiplayer) was going to be possible for a lot of technical reasons, but I thought we should absolutely try it after playing through the Mario Kart [multiplayer].”

    I’m glad there is equal parity between the various version and to make up for the later release, the inclusion of some exclusive features even if they are cosmetic.

      Card games on motorcycles didn’t make the anime better.

    When people say the Switch can’t keep up with other consoles I’ll direct them to Rocket League.

    This is the exact type of port we want. Developers cannot release ports for Nintendo systems that don’t have the same functionality as their counterparts and expect the sales to exceed expectations.

    I’m not particularly interested in the game but everybody says it’s fun, so I might just get it to support.
