Introducing ¡Fiesta Latina! in Rocket League Image

Rocket League is thrilled to celebrate Hispanic and Latino Heritage Month and the Independence Days for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Chile! Starting September 15, get the free ¡Fiesta Latina! Bundle in the Item Shop featuring the Acero-Florentina Wheel, and three Player Anthems from recording artist AL3JANDRO. We're excited to commemorate the culture and history in-game alongside all of our Hispanic and Latino players with these unique items from creators with Latino heritage. 

The Acero-Florentina Wheel was specially designed by Jose Flores, Senior Concept Artist at Psyonix. Get this wheel inspired by the Mexican Sunflower September 15 through October 15, plus the three Player Anthems in the bundle ("Loca," "So Good," and "We Own The Night"). These songs will also be added to Rocket League Radio, and can be heard in-game. 

AL3JANDRO was the vocal producer who recorded, wrote, and edited a lot of the vocals on some of the most popular early songs found in Rocket League. He is a ghost writer that Hollywood Principle worked with on songs like "Solar Eclipses'',"Breathing Underwater", and “Seeing What’s Next”.
