Rocket League and Hot Wheels is the collaboration you've been waiting for

Probably rule out bicycle kicks, though

It was bound to happen eventually. Rocket League has become one of the all-time multiplayer phenomenons, and with the game now dominating servers on virtually every platform, it makes sense for Psyonix and toy-maker Mattel to partner up and give it the Hot Wheels treatment. The set, which you can take a gander at here, will cost $179.99 when it launches later this year, and comes with a teeny stadium, two Bluetooth-controlled battle cars (replicas of Octane and Dominus from the game), and a ball that pings IR signals to the LCD scoreboard when you score a goal. More vehicles will be available to buy, so you can get a game of 2v2 (the best Rocket League) going if you’re willing to lay down the cash. Keep your expectations in check, though. Real-life Rocket League will struggle to recreate the last-minute front flip volleys, boost pads and exploding goals.
