Compete with Xbox friends when 'Rocket League' arrives on Switch

Rocket League is coming to the Nintendo Switch. That alone is big news, but bigger yet? When it's released this holiday, you'll be able to play against folks on Steam and Xbox One. That's right: when developer Psyonix said that they had cross-platform multiplayer figured out, the studio wasn't bluffing. If it sounds familiar, that's because Microsoft announced that Minecraft would offer cross-play between Nintendo's portable/home console hybrid earlier this week. The port will have Mario and Luigi hats and a few battle cars exclusive to the platform as well.

'Super Mario Odyssey' comes to the Switch October 27th

When Nintendo announced Super Mario Odyssey alongside the Nintendo Switch reveal, it felt like a breath of fresh air. Sure, the Wii U had New Super Mario Bros U, Mario Maker and the excellent platforming of Super Mario 3D world -- but the open-world exploration mechanics of Sunshine, Galaxy and Super Mario 64 skipped Nintendo's last console. When Nintendo teased Odyssey as a refreshing return to form, it didn't give us a lot to go on. We knew Mario would explore a earth-like metropolis named New Donk City. We knew he could dance. We knew he had a magic hat. Now, we know when we'll be able to play it all: Today at E3, Nintendo announced that Super Mario Odyssey would launch on October 27th.
