Atari have announced that RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D is coming in 2012, exclusively to 3DS.
The RollerCoaster Tycoon series is one of the best-selling PC franchises of all time and next year 3DS owners will be able to enjoy constructing the perfect rollercoaster, or simply putting too much salt on their fries and cleaning up vomit, all in glasses-free 3D.
“RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D marks the return of one of the most popular game franchises and delivers an innovative, robust and unrestricted theme park simulator to the next generation of Tycoon fans,” said Jim Wilson, CEO of Atari.

- 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.
