[Review] Rocket League
Posted on 3 months ago by Dennis(@LyonHart_) in Reviews, Switch | 2 Comments | 0 Likes
Release date: November 14, 2017
Developer: Psyonix / Panic Button
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).

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.

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”.

Much in the way that Tantalus became associated with Wii U ports back in the day, Panic Button is helping to bring prominent games to Switch. Digital Foundry confirms that the studio is porting two high-profile games to Nintendo’s console. Panic Button is leading the way on both Rocket League and Doom for Switch. Psyonix and Bethesda are very much involved with the two titles respectively, but it sounds like Panic Button is primarily in charge.

Psyonix is revealing some big news about the Switch version of Rocket League today. This version of the game will offer some exclusive Nintendo-specific cars.
Players will be able to ride in vehicles based around Mario, Luigi, and Samus. The Mario and Luigi cars are the same but for a different predominant color and logo, and the one you get depends on the Rocket League team you’re on. You’ll be Mario on the Orange team, and Luigi on the Blue team.
