Last year Rocket League launched for the Nintendo Switch. However if you’ve yet to get your hands on the game, you might be interested to learn that Psyonix has since announced Rocket League: Ultimate Edition that is expected to make its way onto the Nintendo Switch on the 28th of August.
The game will be priced at $ 49.99 which you might have noticed costs $ 10 more than the regular version of the game. However this is the Ultimate Edition which means that it is expected to contain additional items such as various DLC packs for the game, which includes the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Car Pack, the Chaos Run DLC Pack, the DC Super Heroes DLC Pack, the Revenge of the Battle-Cars DLC Pack, the Supersonic Fury DLC Pack, along with Aftershock, Esper, Marauder, Masamune, Proteus, Triton and Vulcan DLC Battle-Cars.
Now you might think that the $ 10 price hike is because of the bundled content, but according to Psyonix, “As many of you have likely noticed, the MSRP for Rocket League Collector’s Edition is $ 10 more on Nintendo Switch than the same version on other platforms. As much as we tried to keep the retail price down, the reality of the Switch’s increased cartridge manufacturing costs meant that the MSRP had to be higher as well.”
In any case an extra $ 10 isn’t too much to ask for given what you’ll be getting, so if you don’t mind the extra $ 10, then keep an eye out for its release later this month.
