Today Atari, one of the world’s most recognized publishers and producers of interactive entertainment, has released RollerCoaster Tycoon® 3D for the Nintendo 3DS™ portable game console. The new game, which brings the hit RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise to a new generation on handheld gaming devices, is now headed to stores everywhere. Gamers who have been holding their breath during the long ascent can now experience the thrills of designing and managing their own theme park, and riding their own customized rollercoasters in first-person 3D. The addictive blend of simulation and creativity in Chris Sawyer’s original RollerCoaster Tycoon and its sequels will be available at retail shortly for $29.99.
Developed by n-Space, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D recaptures the classic gameplay of the RollerCoaster Tycoon games that have delighted gamers since 1999, while tailoring the fun for the 3DS through an intuitive touch-screen interface and portable game sessions. Just as players will be challenged to craft an enjoyable experience for their in-game customers, the look and feel of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D has been designed to use the system’s features for smooth gameplay, including 3D graphics, park exploration via gyro sensors, and coaster-sharing abilities via StreetPass™.
“RollerCoaster Tycoon has a very rich history, one that has entertained fans worldwide for over a decade,” said Jim Wilson, CEO, Atari. “We’re pleased to be working with n-Space and expanding the franchise to even more gamers on new portable platforms.”
“We’re thrilled to help Atari introduce the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise to a new generation of gamers with RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D,” said Dan O’Leary, president of n-Space. “It was a pleasure working with Atari to craft a game that both respects the franchise’s sandbox roots and guides new players on their journey. RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D mixes familiar elements with fresh designs to yield an exciting ride.”
