As previously announced, Rocket League will be coming to Nintendo Switch accompanied by cross-platform play.
A cross-platform connection has already been made by Xbox One and PC, however PS4 continue to make the headlines by refusing to implement the feature. Psyonix vice president of publishing Jeremy Dunham revealed that as far as Nintendo were concerned, it was important to have them onside for such a feat.
Dunham commented: “Nintendo has been very open with giving us whatever resources that we need, answering any questions that we have, allowing us to do cross-network play, which is a big deal and very important to us and they had no problem with that at all”
Nintendo’s positive response is great news for Psyonix, with Nintendo recognising that cross-platform play is massively important to Rocket League. Whether or not this will be something that PlayStation 4 embraces in the future remains to be seen. It will be exciting for Rocket League to come to the Nintendo Switch, given that the console’s capabilities means that the game can be taken on the go, since there’s no other options to take the experience on a mobile device.
Rocket League releases on the Nintendo eShop in the holidays of 2017.
