RollerCoaster Tycoon Coming To 3DS

  • Build your own rollercoasters
  • Manage a theme park
  • Progress during game unlocks features

Atari staple, RollerCoaster Tycoon, is being next year as a relaunched 3D gameplay experience tailored for Nintendo 3DS handheld console. 

Like the old version, gamers can construct roller coasters, as well as pick out the perfect spot for your stores and amenities amidst jam-packed crowds.

Features include the ability to meld the deep coaster construction system and robust theme park customisation to your own needs.  Design the wildest, most imaginative roller coasters through the “Coaster Creator” option using a user-friendly, touchscreen toolset and a wide array of upgrade possibilities and themes at your disposal.

The world of RollerCoaster Tycoon isn’t just about creating roller coasters; managing theme parks is paramount to keeping finances flowing to build even more. This latest installment takes the management simulation from the series and compresses it into a handheld form, creating a challenging yet manageable take on the genre for players of all ages.

Completely new to the series is the “Coaster Story” mode, which blends together tutorials and park challenges into a cohesive and entertaining narrative, claims Atari. Choose your own player character and set off on a journey around the world to expand your roller coaster empire. As you progress, you’ll unlock tons of unique attractions, themes, amenities and more.

Players who want to get right into the action can quickly jump into the open-ended “Park Sandbox” mode and play RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D the classic way, where the only thing that matters is just how far you can take your own theme park.  With the advanced networking capabilities of Nintendo 3DS, sharing your park creations is now easier than ever!
