Now Playing: Rocket League On Switch Launch Livestream

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Rocket League has been a hit on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, and now the game is officially out on Nintendo Switch. The soccer-with-cars game is offered exclusively for the Switch through the Nintendo Eshop and costs $20. It also features cross-play with Xbox One and PC (one of the first Switch games to do so, following Minecraft). You can see the game in action on the Switch in our livestream above.

Rocket League's Switch edition includes all modes from the other versions, including local and online play. There are Switch-exclusive customization options in the form of Mario/Luigi and Samus cars, and the game also comes with Mario and Luigi toppers (which can be used on any car except the licensed ones). There's also a Nintendo-themed rocket boost for the Nintendo cars.

Since it was first released in 2015, Rocket League has had continued success and amassed legions of player. The latest numbers shows a total 37 million people have played the game, with an average of more than 1.5 million players logging on every day. Despite that success, developer Psyonix has said it has no plans to launch a sequel to Rocket League any time soon.

Psyonix has continued to release expansions, however. Rocket League's latest DLC was based on the Fast and the Furious and was released last month.

I have it. The resolution is absolutely terrible. Very noticeable going from ps4 to switch. However, Its rocket league on the go and runs well and has good performance. 60fps holds in my experience. The resolution though is very bad. Looks like vasoline smeared all over the screen. But its perfectly playable, and once you play it for a bit it starts to not bother you as much. It does look slightly better on the actual switch vs the tv.

@129260: How can you say it looks terrible when there is a video embedded in this article with them playing the game? It looks fine to me.

@fig56: It looks terrible when you are used to the high resolution. It looks blurry and pixelated. Draw distance is also very low.
