Rocket League and Hot Wheels have teamed up again and is currently working on a real-life version of the popular game. The Hot Wheels Rocket League RC Rivals tabletop game will allow players to have two Battle Cars from the video game and try to ram a soccer ball on their opponent’s goal.
The tabletop game was revealed during the Toy Fair in New York and features both Dominus and Octane vehicles from the game. It will also include a stadium, a game ball, and a charging base as a complete set.
The cars in RC Rivals will be controlled wirelessly via Bluetooth from the player’s smartphone or tablet devices. A built-in scoreboard will also be available and will automatically mark down scores via an infrared sensor located inside the ball. Lastly, to even add the feel of the video game, RC Rivals will include the sound effects of Rocket League for a genuine experience.
This will be the second time that Hot Wheels and Rocket League have collaborated. Back in 2017, Rocket League released a DLC that introduced two of Hot Wheels’ popular vehicles, Bone Shaker and Twin Mill III. Rocket League has also ventured into the toy car market for a while now as it has released a series of toy cars from Zag Toys and coming this March, eight Light-Up Clip-on vehicles will be released.
The Hot Wheels Rocket League RC toy set will be available later this year and will be priced at $180. You can check out the hands-on preview by CNET in the video clip below.
