Rocket League Reveals Mario And Metroid Series Vehicles

Players will be hoping that RNG is on their side, however, as item unlocks in Rocket League are entirely random. This means you can still show off your Nintendo flair even if you opt to not use one of the new cars.

On Wednesday, Rocket League - the popular soccer with cars video game that's become one of the most popular multiplayer games - announced it was bringing Super Mario and Metroid cars to the game.

Developer Psyonix has unveiled a Mario NSR vehicle for the Orange Team and Luigi NSR auto for the Blue Team.

The colors of the vehicle will also change depending on what team you are representing.

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. Likewise, the "Wave Beam" Rocket Boost is exclusive to "Samus" Gunship'.
