All Articles: Roller Coaster Tycoon 3D
This week’s new releases are shaken, not stirred, and plenty scary. Don’t believe me, check ’em out…
Just like he likes his martinis, James Bond has been shaken out of his MGM bankruptcy-imposed slumber for 007 Legends on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Bringing together the plots of six different Bond movies (including next month’s Skyfall), the game promises to be an excellent history lesson on the last 50 years of Her Majesty’s greatest secret agent.
Also like Mr. Bond’s martinis, you’ll want to not stir, but shake it for Dance Central 3. The Xbox 360-exclusive is Harmonix’s third trip on the dance floor and this time they’re bringing “Ice Ice Baby.” It’s about time.
For scares, we’ve got a trio of choices this week: id’s reworked Doom 3: BFG Edition (PC, PS3, Xbox 360), Konami’s Vita-exclusive Silent Hill: Book of Memories, and Atari’s Roller Coaster Tycoon 3D (on the 3DS, naturally). Boo!
Skylanders Giants will also be available this week, but not on Tuesday. The toy-powered game will be released in both a Starter Pack and a Portal Owners Pack across the 3DS, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360 on Sunday, October 21.
You can find more new releases after the break… and some of them even fit the theme. (more…)
Atari has announced they’ll be reopening their acclaimed theme-park-management sim series on the 3DS next year as Roller Coaster Tycoon 3D. Developed by n-Space, Roller Coaster Tycoon 3D will bring back many of the franchise’s most popular feature while adding a story mode, touchscreen controls and coaster sharing through the 3DS’s wireless network.
Now, step right up as the barkers from Atari assault your ears with all the key features available in the first ever handheld version of Roller Coaster Tycoon:
- 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 customization. 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!
