Nintendo’s annual E3 Direct livestream had its share of surprises and plenty for Switch owners to look forward to. One of those big surprises was announcement of “Rocket League” making its way to the Switch.
It’s no secret that the Switch doesn’t have the power that the Xbox, PS4 or PC platforms have. It was a big mystery if the Switch would be up to the task of handling “Rocket League’s” 60 frames-per-second gameplay. I’ve played it and the developers at Psyonix are up to the task of keeping the action as fast as ever. In order to keep it running at 60FPS, sacrifices had to be made.
It’s been nearly three years since “Mario Kart 8” graced the now-defunct Nintendo Wii U. The game advanced the beloved racing series with some new tracks and a nice layer of graphical polish, but it lacked legitimate substance until downloadable content added it months after its launch. Now, Nintendo is taking the game for a victory lap on the new Nintendo Switch. “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” is what “Mario Kart 8” should’ve been in the first place.
