Mario and Luigi are coming to Rocket League

Matt Sayer 24 August 2017 NEWS


The plumber bros are taking to the field for some explosive car-soccer action.

As announced back at E3 earlier this year, the Nintendo Switch version of the car-soccer mashup Rocket League is getting some exclusive Nintendo-themed cars and customisation items. Now we get our first good look at what they are thanks to a new trailer from developer Psyonix.

You'll be able to duke it out in a Mario NSR, a Luigi NSR and a car styled after Samus's Gunship from the Metroid games. The vehicles will be unlockable for free when the game launches. Which team you're on in any given match will affect which cars you can use. If you're on Blue team, you'll have access to the Luigi NSR and a tweaked Samus car, styled after her Varia Suit. If you're on Orange team, you'll be able to drive the Mario NSR and Samus's Gunship.

Outside of the new cars, the Switch version of Rocket League will also get new items, such as Mario and Luigi hats for use on any non-licensed car, as well as a Super Star rocket boost, equipable only on the Mario NSR and Luigi NSR. Finally, Samus's Gunship will get a Wave Beam rocket boost.

Rocket League will hit Nintendo Switch during the holiday period of 2017.

In other Nintendo news, Splatoon 2 and ARMS are also getting a host of new goodies, and we finally have a release date for Fire Emblem Warriors.
