Funrise has announced a new partnership with video game developer Psyonix to create a range of customisable and remote-controlled Rocket League replica cars, in a deal brokered by IMG.
The new Rocket League branded collection will feature several customisable cars, including mini-RCs and full-size RCs that allow players to bring the video game Rocket League to life. The replicas are based on some of the most popular cars from the Rocket League franchise, including Octane, Dominus, Fennec, and Takumi.
“We are so excited to welcome Rocket League into our family of toys and bring the fun of the game to life for fans around the world,” says Stephanie Simpson Bughi, Funrise Vice President of Global Brand Marketing. “Rocket League engages users in endless fun through a riveting combination of soccer and cars, and we are confident that fans will welcome the expansion of the Rocket League world through our new series of cars.”
The range of Rocket League cars will be launching globally in autumn 2022 and will offer a variety of price points from US$14.99 to US$39.99 (MSRP).
