Since its inception in 1999, Chris Sawyer’s original RollerCoaster Tycoon and its sequels have captivated audiences with a gaming experience that put a whole new spin on the world of theme parks. Now, twelve years later and over eleven million units sold, Atari is bringing RollerCoaster Tycoon back with a new stereoscopic 3D gameplay experience.
From constructing the wildest roller coasters to picking out the perfect spot for your stores and amenities amidst jam-packed crowds, you can finally enjoy the classic RollerCoaster Tycoon experience on a handheld device for the first time ever.
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D is promising a deep coaster construction system and robust theme park customisation. 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. However, 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 instalment takes the demanding 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. 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.
“RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D marks the return of one of the most popular game franchises and delivers an innovative, robust and unrestricted theme park simulator to the next generation of Tycoon fans,” said Jim Wilson, CEO of Atari.
Developed by n-Space, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D will be available in 2012. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D, and other forthcoming Nintendo 3DS exclusives.
