Rocket League, Psyonix’s phenomenally successful soc-car game, is on the way to Nintendo Switch, the company announced during its E3 2017 Nintendo Spotlight presentation today.

The Switch version is scheduled to be released this holiday season. It will include all the features and modes that are available on other platforms, as well as some special additions for the Switch. For instance, local wireless multiplayer will be available, so you can play with multiple Switch units in the same room. Psyonix is also including exclusive vehicles and Nintendo-themed customization items, such as Mario and Luigi hats for cars.

Rocket League supports cross-network play across each console and PC (i.e., PlayStation 4 and PC, and Xbox One and PC). The same feature will also be available across Switch, PC and Xbox One — not PS4, Psyonix said in its announcement post.

Psyonix originally released Rocket League in July 2015 on PC and PS4. The studio brought the game to Xbox One in February 2016.
