The Nintendo Switch version of Rocket League is getting some Nintendo-themed cars and accessories as free content when the game releases on the Nintendo Switch sometime this holiday season.

Mario, Luigi, and Samus-themed cars have been officially revealed, along with two boosters based on Mario's stars and Metroid's wave beam effects. Additional toppers and antennas are expected to be revealed before the game is officially released.


Whether or not players use the Mario or Luigi cars will depend on which team color they select before the match. The Mario car will only be playable on the orange team and the Luigi car will only be playable on the blue team. The Samus car will also have different colors depending on which team you are on, styled after different Varia suits.

The items are rewards for completing matches and will be entirely free to unlock. Players will be hoping that RNG is on their side, however, as item unlocks in Rocket League are entirely random.
