When it comes to surprise hits in video games, one of the most recent success stories has to be Rocket League. Launched in 2015, the competitive multiplayer driving-meets-soccer title has grown exponentially. With continuous support via DLC and established communities, it’s a game that just won’t quit. Already released on PS4, PC and Xbox One, developer Psyonix is now evaluating if the aerial automotive action can make its way to the Switch.


In a recent talk with IGN, Psyonix Vice President Jeremy Dunham made it known that it was under consideration based on many factors, with community demand and technical limitations being the key ones name-dropped. With regards to community demand, the company’s not just considering just the voices of Nintendo fans who are interested, but it’s also taking into account the user base of Rocket League as a whole. He reiterates just how much this community focus means to the company, while emphasizing that it’s still too early to say anything definitive with regards to the new Nintendo console.

Still, the idea of being able to take Rocket League anywhere via my Switch is all too appealing. Seeing what kind of conceptual ideas are at work with the likes of Splatoon 2, I’d be all for connecting multiple Switches for some local games for an experience not so easily achieved on other platforms. Not to mention HD Rumble could definitely make for a great, tactile experience with how much colliding and boosting can happen.

Want to see Rocket League make the high-speed jump to Switch? Let us know below, because it sounds like Psyonix is listening.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
