Atari's iconic RollerCoaster Tycoon series comes to the Nintendo Switch for the very first time in the form of RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures.
“We are delighted to release our first Nintendo Switch game today with RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures,” said Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer, Atari. “RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures is a fully-featured, brand-new entry in Chris Sawyer’s beloved RollerCoaster Tycoon series. Thanks to the capabilities of the Nintendo Switch, new and seasoned tycoons can play anytime and anywhere.”
Now available via the Nintendo eShop, the game combines classic RollerCoaster Tycoon gameplay with brand-new twists, all customized for Nintendo’s unique console. The game features three play modes — Adventure, Scenario, and Sandbox — and lets players pick from more than 50 vivid colors to customize rides, roller coasters, shops, and restaurants. Adventure Mode is brand new to the series and features an event system that is designed to make every park different. Players will need to make tough decisions when presented with park events, ensuring that every playthrough of Adventure Mode is a compelling new Tycoon story.
Parks can be customized adding a pre-made path, foliage, and river tiles in one of four distinctive locations — Alpine, Moon, Canyon, and Tropics. There are also 20 wacky rides, restaurants, and shops available to players including the humble Merry-go-Round and the death-defying Roto-Drop. Players also have access to seven types of fully customizable roller coasters including wooden, steel, winged, hyper, inverted, dive, and accelerator.
RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures is rated "E for Everyone" by the ESRB.
