Exclusive cars for Switch fans
Rocket League is one of the most popular titles this year for its unique concept. It is nothing like typical soccer games, as instead of humans, the players are rocket-powered cars. The title is already available on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
Rocket League developer Psyonix revealed two vehicles exclusive to the Switch, and both will have iconic Nintendo properties. The first car called the NSR would come in Mario and Luigi varieties, and the second one is based on Samus’ iconic gunship from Metroid. Both vehicles will be free and will be available when the game arrives on the Switch this holiday season.
“Whether or not players use the Mario or Luigi NSR will depend on which team color they select before the match — Mario for the Orange team and Luigi for the Blue team,” Psyonix said.
Samus’ gunship will also be available in two different variations styled after different Varia Suits. Further, the vehicles will come with boosts that pay homage to their respective franchises.
“Both cars also have specialised boosts, called ‘Super Star’ for the Mario and Luigi NSR and ‘Wave Beam’ for Samus’ Gunship,” says Nintendo.
Xbox One and PC players will not be able to see the Switch versions of the cars. If players on the Xbox One and PC are playing against someone using these cars, they will see either Octane (for Mario/Luigi) or Breakout (for Samus), according to GameSpot.
Transparent goalposts for Rocket League
Another new feature coming to Rocket League is transparent goalposts, one of the most-requested features by the community. In addition to the goalposts being transparent, the game’s next update will make certain parts of the Arena which were solid structures previously become transparent. When a player defends inside the goal, the posts and the walls will become transparent for better vision.
In addition, players who hug Arena walls will also see transparent structures. However, if someone is comfortable with the transparent goalposts and other structures, they can opt for them to be opaque like they were before, notes PSLS.
Another interesting game also coming to the Switch
The Nintendo Switch will get yet another popular game, Fe, next year. During Gamescom, EA announced that Fe will launch in early 2018 and will be available on the Nintendo Switch as well. During the conference, developer Zoink said the title will also be available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC early next year.
Zoink also unveiled a trailer for the game during the event. It is obvious from the trailer that Fe draws inspiration from the natural world. Within the game, players will be able to take control of a cub that wanders through the forest and interacts with creatures it finds.
In other Nintendo news, to make it easier for customers to buy games, Nintendo has teamed up with PayPal. Players can now opt for the PayPal payment option when they make a payment for a title purchased.
