Game Profile

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.

Complete creative freedom with intuitive and streamline controls

Fully enjoy the features that made the beloved series popular: 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.

A deep and immersive management simulation experience

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 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.

New gameplay mode with special unlockable content

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.

§ Jump straight into “Park Sandbox” mode and take control
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!

In RollerCoaster Tycoon you're supposed to build the ultimate theme park to spread joy to the world, bring smiles to the faces of terminally ill children and generally make everybody feel good about themselves, but it's actually much more fun to create rides like this. 3DS owners will get a taste of that pleasure next year as Atari has revealed RollerCoaster Tycoon..

I looked at the eshop and it had a release date for the 22nd of June. Is that just a rough date or something?

May 22 for the US release. I am shocked by the few screenshots I've seen. You look at someting like Mario Kart 7, the graphics are much better than Wii quality. Then you look at this, and the graphics look like a direct port of RCT3. Somewhere in between N64 and gamecube. I pray to god the graphics look amazing in motion, but the lack of videos a week before release is not a good sign. If the stereoscopic 3D is amazing, I'll get it to ride the coasters. Otherwise... I'll only get RCT4 for PC (Graphics are way beyond PS3 quality).

I loved the PC RCT games so I was hoping this would be good but after reading this review I definitely won't be getting this. Such a shame that it turned out like this.

I loved roller coaster tycoon! I used to play it all the time, spending endless hours building new roller coasters and shops. I'm puting this on my to-buy list when it comes out.
