Rocket League Collector’s Edition on Switch heads to retail in January
Last week we spotted a retail listing for Rocket League with a January release, and now it has been confirmed.
Rocket League for Switch will head to retailers early next year with a release date spread over a couple of days in different countries. Rocket League Collector’s Edition for the Switch will arrive in Australia on January 24th and North America gets it on January 16th. Central Europe gets the game on January 25th and everyone else on January 26th. Yeesh.
The Collectors Edition has the following DLC included;

- Chaos Run DLC Pack
- Aftershock DLC Car
- Marauder DLC Car
- Esper DLC Car
- Masamune DLC Car

The game is more expensive than it is on other consoles and there’s blog post explaining why here. It’s exactly why you think it would be.
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.
Along with the news of the retail release was the announcement a new game update, v1.40 promises a bunch of bug fixes but most importantly some performance updates for the Switch version of the game.
The update will hit around 6:00 am Thursday morning AEDT.
Heads up! We're releasing a game update (v1.40) on ALL platforms tomorrow, December 13 at 11am PST/2pm EST/8pm CET. The update will include several bug fixes, and some performance improvements for RL players on Nintendo Switch. #RLonSwitch pic.twitter.com/ZYwq81xwzY
