Psyonix is delivering that car soccer phenomenon to Nintendo’s handheld soon.

You have probably been living under a rock if you were unaware of Rocket League’s runaway success. Initially debuting on PS4 and Steam back in the summer of 2015 and later arriving on Xbox, the arcade-style car soccer game has been one of the best selling games of this generation. Players looking to stuff goals on the go can look forward to piloting their rocket cars on Nintendo’s handheld this fall.

Officially announced this morning, Psyonix will be releasing Rocket League on the Switch on November 14. The game will be available through the Nintendo eShop and will sell for $19.99. The Switch port of Rocket League will be feature-complete with the other version of the game while also offering some Switch-exclusive Battle Cars and cosmetics.

In celebration of the release date announcement, Nintendo has published a new Nintendo video episode featuring Rocket League. You can check out the video below.
