Roller Coaster Tycoon queues up on Switch

Atari’s first Switch title, Roller Coaster Tycoon Adventures brings the park-builder genre to Nintendo’s console.

Park is open

These games are pretty few and far between after all, so to get one at all is rare. It’s been a while since I’ve played something like Roller Coaster Tycoon Adventures personally, and I can’t wait to dive back into the theme park sim genre. 

If that’s you too, then you might have a pretty good time on your hands with this release. Adventures is customized for the Switch hardware according to Atari, and combines “classic RollerCoaster Tycoon gameplay with brand-new twists”. That shakes out to be three game modes that will include Adventure Mode, Scenarios, and Sandbox. 

Here’s the full list of what’s included:

Exciting Game Modes: Create outrageous parks in three different fun-filled modes – Adventure, Scenario, and Sandbox.
 
Choose Your Own Adventure: A first for the RollerCoaster Tycoonseries, Adventure Mode’s brand-new Event System makes every park unique. You’ll have to make tough decisions when presented with park events, ensuring that every playthrough of Adventure Mode is a compelling new Tycoon story.
 
Customize and Personalize Your Park: Pick from over 50 vivid colors to customize rides, roller coasters, shops, and restaurants. Transform your park by adding a pre-made path, foliage, and river tiles. Build your incredible parks in one of four distinctive locations — Alpine, Moon, Canyon, and Tropics!
 
Thrill Rides: Place seven types of fully customizable roller coasters in your park — Wooden, Steel, Winged, Hyper, Inverted, Dive, and Accelerator.
 
Intuitive Management System: Streamlined management and easy-to-use tools make RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures the most accessible entry into the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise and a perfect fit for Nintendo Switch.
 
Attractions Galore: Choose from over 120 wacky rides, restaurants, and shops for your park — from the humble Merry-go-Round to the death-defying Roto-Drop — all featuring advanced shaders and effects.
 
Gameplay Flexibility: Use either Nintendo Switch Joy-Con™ controllers or touchscreen controls to play the way you want. RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures runs at 1080p when in TV mode and 720p in handheld mode.
