Rocket League has seen tremendous growth in popularity and players over the past few years since its original release, and also now cements itself as one of the largest eSports franchises in the world. At the same time, it remains easy to pick up and play for the casual gamer to enjoy. Although we’ve seen a surge in online multiplayer titles for quite awhile now, Rocket League maintains a dedicated and respectful consumer base thanks to its low cost of entry, hours of fun, and, most importantly, no pay-to-win nonsense. The cars won’t run faster, but having something like the Batmobile will definitely make you look cooler than most out on the field (besides the incredible Metroid car, of course).

GameXplain has uploaded a video showing the Mario and Metroid cars in the recently released Rocket League game. It’s a brief video that shows both the cars close up and in action. Check it out for yourself down below.



During an AMA on Reddit, Psyonix provided tech specs for Rocket League on the Switch. When docked, the resolution is 720p. The resolution stays around 526p when in portable mode. The priority seems to have been keeping the game running at a solid 60fps.

Rocket League runs at 1280×720 in Docked and uses a dynamic resolution scaler in Undocked (handheld) depending on the stadium being played. Generally speaking it hovers around 1024×576. Post launch we plan to continue working on optimizing the game.

Psyonix finally shared a release date for Rocket League on Switch. The game will be on Nintendo’s console starting November 14. However, that’s just a digital version – Psyonix hasn’t had much to say about a physical release.

Thankfully, it does sound like Rocket League will eventually have a physical version on Switch. Psyonix VP Jeremy Dunham told one fan on Twitter that news on that front will be provided “later”.
