According to a new press release by Psionix, Rocket League will officially be getting a physical release for the Switch in January. This is pretty exciting news for Switch owners. This is one of the great competitive games to come out over the last five years or so. Always a ton of good chaotic fun. Anyway, here is the official press release:
The most frequent question we’ve received from Nintendo Switch fans since our digital release this past November has been, “When can we expect a physical version of Rocket League to come to store shelves?”
We are pleased to say that the answer to that question is…
- January 16 for North America
- January 24 for Australia and New Zealand
- January 25 for Central Europe
- January 26 for remaining Europe, Israel, Middle East, Russia, and South Africa (players in Europe should contact their local retailer for availability details)
This new, physical Switch version will also be distributed by our new partner, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Check out the box art down below!

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. That said, we are still VERY confident that players who join us from the retail side will get plenty of enjoyment from what Rocket League has to offer and we look forward to welcoming them to the community next month!
Personally, I loved Rocket League and have a platinum trophy for the game on PSN. I could easily see myself revisiting this game on the Switch, where I can literally pick up and play Rocket League anywhere.
