Definitely tempted by this now. I've played the PS4 version, is the Switch version pretty much the same quality wise?

Didn't know about this before but now I want it. Thing is, I hate digital games and the cheapest physical is Argos £19.99 collection.

that's the collector's edition, with all the DLC. not sure which ends up being cheaper, but this is definitely the lowest point of entry.

Ah thanks for the info. It definitely makes me feel better when I irrationally waste my money just to have the pain of changing game carts.

Looks like I just got the last one in my area. There is one in East Grinstead...

yikes, there's about £20 worth of DLC! conveniently Nintendo have put it all on sale too. I've added the link to the post description.

**edit**

looks like there's additional DLC on the eshop which isn't included in the collector's edition. bonkers.

No it's not. The graphics and performance are very poor when playing 2 Vs 2 split screen through the TV on the 'low graphics' mode. You can forget using the higher graphics mode in that scenario. I think it plays fine single player in handheld mode, though.

At that price, couldn't not purchase

That's disappointing. Whilst I would be playing predominantly in handheld mode, I would have liked it for split screen on the TV as well for multiplayer nights.
I'll probably stick with the PS4 version.
Really want RocketID to come soon. Be great to link my Steam version with this

If you're a RL fan it's well worth £7.50 for occasional portable play. I don't mind the downgraded visuals and performance has improved since launch, however the Joy-cons are a hindrance with noticeable input lag.
Does anyone know if you need to purchase the Nintendo online pass to play this online? I was playing Arena of valor on my switch yesterday, which didn't appear to need online pass. So I'm wondering is this the same? Just don't see the value in paying £17.99 Nintendos online service, which in itself isn't expensive, but would rather spend that on a game :/

yes, it's required --> nintendo.com/gam…rue

Arena of Valor is excluded, as it's a free to play title like Fortnite.

I bought Resident Evil Revelations 2 shortly before I bought this and the pair of them are still downloading. it must be close to 4 hours now, which is a bit disappointing considering we're now subsidising the underlying infrastructure.

Don't think you get the Mario themed stuff with this one do you? But still a great price for the core game.

yes think you are right, if scroll down too, there is some reductions on the add on content with stuff like Jurassic Park, Back to the Future and DC Superheroes reduced to £0.75 - £1.50.

(I've already mentioned it in the description it all looks a bit superfluous, to be fair).
£6.59 on the Russian eShop
Purchased the game last night from the eshop. Amazing price though, heat!

Side note, does anyone know why games I download sometimes fail to install on my SD card? Only had a switch a few weeks, but it keeps happening. I get the “X” symbol sometimes either during or when download is completing. Haven’t actually managed to install Rocket League yet... I have it set so my games install to Sd card

Don't listen to this guy, I've had RL on ps4 since day 1 and this game is great on switch. Whilst it may have performance issues on 2v2 couch split-screen it's great in handheld. 60FPS and plays great as long as you don't have crappy internet. Honestly for that price it's worth every penny but you already know this.... it's rocket league

any recommendations for the DLC? I've never played it, but wondered if it was like "extra missions / worlds" or some such?

I am a huge RL fan and have this on both PC and Switch.

The two versions are worlds apart - technically and graphically, especially with the standard joy-cons as the joysticks' sensitivity range feels like it is approximately only 60% of what a Dualshock is capable of.
Have not tried pro controller so cannot comment on that.

If you just want some harmless fun (ie. like a second copy in my case), I'd say go for it.

But if this is to be your main copy of RL, this is definitely not worth getting salty/sweaty over for.
This is an absolute must buy for Switch owners - my most played game in 2018 and is great just to pick up and play for 10 minutes.

I have it for both the Switch and Xbox One X and it's pretty much the same experience. Granted the X looks better in 4k HDR on the TV but handheld the Switch version also looks great and is very smooth. It's great fun to play in bed on a lazy Sunday morning or grabbing a quick game on the daily commute.

My only annoyance is not having the facility to carry over your progress (like you can in Fortnite) so essentially you start from scratch.

But for this price it's a no brainer, I've played 200+ hours so for

DLC's only include additional cars which are purely cosmetic. You can enjoy rocket league without spending an extra penny!
