It was also revealed that Switch owners won't have any trouble finding people to play with, as they will be able to play across platforms with Xbox One and PC players. This game has been tearing up the sales charts on multiple systems ever since it came out, and now, it's going to be on the most mobile console platform ever in the Nintendo Switch.

On Nintendo Switch, Rocket League will support TV Mode (1-4 players), Tabletop Mode (1 player), Handheld Mode (1 player or 2-8 players connected over Local Wireless), Local Play (1-8 players) and Online Play (1-8 players).

This devotion to fans (within reason) is a rarity in the industry, and it is easy to see why Nintendo would approach the developers at Psyonix to bring Rocket League to the Switch.

"With cross-platform play, it's a big deal that everything feels the same and looks the same so nobody feels like they're at a disadvantage", said Jeremy Dunham, vice president at Psyonix. Even more surprising was that the team was actually testing the game out for Switch past year!

I'm sure you're already thinking 'Hey, there's already a FIFA game coming to the Switch!' However, EA has confirmed that FIFA for Switch will not be using the Frostbite engine that is powering both the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the football sim.

One moment in the demo showed the player trying to climb through a window only to launch the character directly off of the building.

Since Microsoft first made a big push for cross-platform play on Xbox Live over a year ago, Sony has said it is "happy to have a conversation" with developers on the matter.

"Technically it's possible", Dunham explained.

"It's up to the community to say, 'This is what we want, ' and say it consistently", he said, drawing comparisons to the features implemented in-game in response to community requests. If we can pass that, we can pass any of the other security protocols. As Eurogamer stated, PlayStation owners want to play with users on other platformers, and to deny them that seems unfair. He's in town and he was asking me the same question.

Super Mario Odyssey also finally got a release date, October 27, and the Japanese giant let us know that even Rocket League is coming to Switch.
