During their E3 conference, Nintendo unveiled that a Switch edition of beloved automobile soccer game Rocket League would be coming to the platform later this year- the Switch version of Rocket League will feature cross-platform play, meaning you can enjoy the Switch version with your PS4, Xbox and PC-playing friends.
It’s not a tremendous surprise that Rocket League is coming to the Switch- it’s a natural fit for Nintendo’s multiplayer-oriented handheld/home-console hybrid. The idea of Rocket League on the road sounds pretty exciting; if you’ve never played this game before, you should know that it’s a tremendously fun hybrid of auto sports and, well, ordinary sports. Imagine chasing a soccer ball around a massive field in a rocket-powered car- that’s Rocket League in a nutshell. The game was a huge hit for Psyonix when it launched on PC and PS4, and it’s been making it’s way to other platforms, where it’s been finding success.
