Nintendo Switch-exclusive Mario and Metroid Battle-Cars revealed for Rocket League

If you're on the Orange side you get the Mario skin, but if you're on the Blue team you'll be repping Luigi. Dubbed the Mario NSR and Luigi NSR, players on Orange Team will have Mario and those on Blue Team will be Luigi.

Nintendo Switch Battle-Cars will be available exclusively for Switch owners without additional cost and you can unlock them for bonus style points.

Rocket League on the Nintendo Switch now has a holiday 2017 launch window, coming with local wireless multiplayer and cross-play capabilities between the PC and Xbox One versions of the game.

As announced back at E3 earlier this year, the Nintendo Switch version of car-soccer mashup Rocket League is getting some exclusive Nintendo-themed cars and customisation items, and now we get our first good look at what they are thanks to a new trailer from developer Psyonix. These two cars have a specialised boost called "Super Star" which is appropriate. Samus' Gunship also has two different variations based upon what team color a player chooses, and are styled after different Varia Suits.

Victor or nominee of more than 150 "Game of the Year" awards, Rocket League is one of the most critically-acclaimed sports games of our generation.

Look for more information on our Nintendo Switch release as we get closer to launch! The "Mario" and "Luigi" Toppers (hats) can be used on any non-licensed customizable Battle-Car, while the "Super Star" Rocket Boost can be used with the "Mario NSR" and "Luigi NSR" cars.
