Roller coastery goodness and peanut butter. What?

Today Atari announced RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D will be out October 16th! Chris Sawyer’s original RollerCoaster Tycoon came out in 1999 and is one of the best selling PC franchises of all time, selling over 11 million copies. It’s only right to bring this bad boy to the Nintendo 3DS and make it portable. RollerCoaster Tycoon is incredibly addictive. I remember building a coaster that no one would ride, it made me a little sad. There are also tons of fun RollerCoaster Tycoon crash videos online to check out.

I don’t know how I got carried away, the game just brings back so many memories. The 3DS version is developed by n-Space and here are some of the new, exclusive features:

  • An entirely new gameplay mode called “Coaster Story,” which blends tutorials and park challenges into a cohesive and entertaining narrative and offers players tons of special unlockable content
  • A first-person view for coaster rides that fully immerses players with the innovative 3D display exclusive to Nintendo 3DS
  • The ability to freely customize the design of roller coasters and theme parks with the use of a stylus and the touch-screen interface
  • Just like at a real theme park, take a snapshot of yourself on a ride and share it with your friends
  • Gyro sensor allows players to look around their theme park by simply tilting their Nintendo 3DS
  • Create the ultimate coaster and easily share it with friends through StreetPass
  • Invite your Mii Plaza friends to your theme park
