RollerCoaster Tycoon has been announced for the Nintendo 3DS according to an article in the latest issue of Nintendo Power Magazine. This new 3DS title will allow players to build the theme park of their dreams. Now, please excuse me while I dance around the office for a minute in nostalgic glee.
The new RollerCoaster Tycoon is being developed by n-Space and will be published by Atari. The game is being built from the ground up with new assets, will feature touchscreen controls, as well as the option to view coasters in 3D. Classic roller coaster types like suspended, hydraulic, wooden, steel, and inverted will be returning.
Not only are the coasters back, but other rides and attractions including monorails, kiddie rides, carousels, haunted houses, and more will also be available. The game will also feature a tutorial mode and other modes like Coaster Creator and Sandbox.
According to NP magazine, RollerCoaster Tycoon for the 3DS will launch in North America this March. As someone who is somewhat of a theme park aficionado after all the time I spent playing RollerCoaster Tycoon about ten years ago, I couldn't be more excited about this announcement. Are you going to play the newest installment in the RollerCoaster Tycoon series? Hopefully this leads to more Zoo Tycoons as well, because I also love those games.
