With that Switch cart premium.

Rocket League Collector's Edition for Switch comes to North American stores Jan. 16 for $39.99.

The cart includes seven DLC packs, car parts based on The Flash, an art print and the base game.

In this announcement, Psionix cited Switch manufacturing costs as the reason for the $10 increase over other physical versions of Rocket League.

Talkback

I've got this game on PS4 and PC.  Probably dumped over 1,000 hours in it.  Generally, I would NOT want a physical copy, if just because this is the perfect "jump in an play 2 matches for 15 minutes".


That said, this is good for collectors who want to have a physical copy for any game on a system, or those who are trying to limit digital purchases given how little storage space there is on the Switch.

My friend is in your camp. He specifically wanted Rocket League digital. Until storage becomes so insanely large and affordable, I want physical copies. I already have a lot of Switch games. I don’t want to run into a situation in which I ever have to swap SD cards. That isn’t the same as swapping cartridges. If the idea is to have all my games with me all the time, there’s no compromise. For this very reason, I’m thoroughly disappointed Bayonetta 1 is, so far, digital only in the West and that Resident Evil Revelations 2 was the digital copy.

Anyway, physical copy of Rocket League was exactly what I was waiting for and I’m excited to pre-order it on Amazon.
