Race on your desk!
Rocket League was first released back in the Summer of 2015 and quickly became a huge success. The adrenaline infused sports game mixes soccer with cars and sees players battle it out online to see who can score the most goals. The game has since been ported to just about every platform and it was recently announced the game has over 26 million registered players.
If you’re hooked on Rocket League then you’ll be pleased to learn that Rocket League-themed toy cars are on their way. These little cars will be like the toy cars we used to play with as kids and will feature the classic “pull back” mechanism that will then allow them to race across flat surfaces.
As GameSpot reports, the 12 toys are all based on cars featured in the game, including: Octane, Dominus, Masamune, Hotshot, Grog, X-Devil, Merc, and Backfire. They will go on sale this Spring in stores across the US and will be packaged inside a Rocket League ball. Some of them will even include a code which will allow players to unlock a special trail for the game.
A price is yet to be announced and it’s not yet confirmed as to whether they’ll see a release in other countries. One thing’s for sure, they’ll look great on your desk! New Yorkers who are interested may want to head to the North American International Toy Fair where they will be displayed.
