For those that don't know Rocket League, you basically drive rocket-powered vehicles to try to knock a giant soccer ball into the opposing goal to earn points.  But it's not as easy as it sounds.  Opposing drivers will try to stop you in order to try scoring on your goal.  The game was already released on Xbox One, PC, and PS4, but a Nintendo Switch version is coming later this year!  The game also supports some types of cross-play, but there are catches.

 

Info coming from the Nintendo Switch version shown at e3 2017 --

Fact sheet:  http://gonintendo.co...ague-fact-sheet

 

Screenshots (down for me): http://gonintendo.co...-league-screens

 

Rocket League on Switch will be 20 bucks (same as other platforms): http://gonintendo.co...other-platforms

 

Nintendo Switch version will have cross-play with XBox One and PC players, but no PS4 crossplay:

Sony refuses to allow PS4 crossplay with non-Sony platforms because THINK OF THE CHILDREN:

>> Ironic as it sounds like something Nintendo would have bellowed in the past.  <.<

Rocket League is pretty cool, one of my roommates plays it all the time but it's a lot more difficult than it looks and he's a beast at it, so I don't really bother much. I was going to get it on Xbox One eventually but now that it's coming to Switch that's definitely where I'm going to get it.

 

Also, Mario hats on cars? Yes please.

Yeah, my friend Tommy played this shit. It was free on PSN last year but I don't get it cuz "fuck this indie shit." Then he told me how it was really awesome and I would get it. I never got it.

I guess I'm more interested in it now than ever before, but "more" is a relative term; I'm still not very interested in it. Part of the reason is because of what you already said: it's harder than it looks. There is already a dedicated fanbase, and they're probably already beast at this shit. Coming in as a noob would be too discouraging for a multiplayer game that I'm not too crazy over playing in the first place.

It'd be like those times when I tried playing Team Fortress 2. Everyone else played totally different from me. They clearly understood the ins and outs of everything, and their movements made me feel like I was a stranger in a place where everyone spoke an alien language. Sure, I could keep playing until I leaned all that shit myself, but my lack of initial interest and motivation would make it hard for me to invest the time and effort.

Psyonix issues more statements in regards to Sony not allowing cross-platform play:

Apparently before Nintendo officially revealed Switch last year, Nintendo approached Psyonix about a port:
