Mario, Luigi and Samus cars coming to Rocket League

For the curious, team color decides which version of the new Battle-Cars appear on the pitch.

Nintendo Switch Battle-Cars will be available exclusively for Switch owners without additional cost and you can unlock them for bonus style points. Which team you're on in any given match will affect which cars you can use: if you're on Blue team, you'll have access to the Luigi NSR and a tweaked Samus vehicle styled after her Varia Suit; if you're on Orange team, you'll be able to drive the Mario NSR and Samus' Gunship.

While we already knew the Switch version would have Mario-themed hats, we've learned via the Rocket League blog that it'll have cars based on two of Nintendo's biggest properties as well.

Both cars also have specialized boosts, called "Super Star" for the Mario and Luigi NSR and "Wave Beam" for Samus' Gunship.

Chelsea launch £25 million swoop for Arsenal wing-back
Chelsea have tabled a bid worth £25million for Arsenal attacker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to a report . The 23-year-old has just one year left on his contract and has been linked with Liverpool as well as the Blues.

The news gets even better, all three cars will be free when the game launches on the Switch this holiday season. Hey, Rocket League players care about boost trails.

Rocket League on Switch will also have some exclusive customizations.

Both cars will have their own unique trails, and will be available only on the Nintendo Switch- as happens with console exclusive content in this game, if you are playing with an Xbox One or PC player (because the Switch version will offer cross platform play), they will see a generic vehicle instead.
