Following the mediocre response to 2008’s Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, developers Psyonix found themselves with a surprise hit when Rocket League launched on PC and PS4 in 2015.
An Xbox version launched in 2016, and the developers have since been supporting the game – and it’s growing fanbase – across all platforms with DLC, both free and paid, on a regular basis.
Now, via a trailer as part of Nintendo’s E3 showing, Psyonix have announced the rocket-fueled-football-cars (totally should have called it that) will also be coming to Switch later this year.
The Switch version of the game will include wireless multiplayer and the cross-network functionality found elsewhere, which means whether you’re on PC, Xbox or Switch you’ll be able to play online seamlessly with those on other machines.
One point of note here, is that despite the developers and other platform holders being open to the idea, PlayStation owners are not able to join cross-network games, because of what Sony say are ‘privacy concerns’.
Rocket League Switch is expected to launch late 2017.
