At E3 Atari has announced not one, but three new RollerCoaster Tycoon games, all of which you probably didn’t ask for.
Atari have had a bit of a mixed reception with recent RollerCoaster Tycoon games. While they still own the rights to the game, the game’s original developers, Chris Sawyer and Frontier Developments, have moved onto bigger and better things, while Atari continue to flog the same dead horse.
At E3 this week, the company continued flogging and have announced three new RollerCoaster Tycoon titles: RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures, RollerCoaster Tycoon Joyride and another RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch.
RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures is the game’s first outing on the Nintendo Switch and acts as an all-new entry into the series. It’s been designed from the ground-up to make the most of the Switch, which I assume means JoyCon integration.
As for Joyride, this is a PS4/PSVR game which lets players experience what it’s like to be a customer in a RollerCoaster Tycoon park. Though if it’s anything like RollerCoaster Tycoon World, it’ll be very disappointing.
Finally, RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch for iOS and Android is a revamped version of the app which landed on mobile in 2016. Major content updates and new features are planned and will be added over the coming weeks. Lovely.
Outside of the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise, Atari also announced Tempest 4000, Transit City Touch, Atari Flashback Classics for Nintendo Switch, Night Driver for mobile, and Atari Flashback Classics Volume 3 for Xbox One and PS4.
