Rollercoaster Tycoon is a staple of many people’s childhoods, being one of the first family-friendly ways to extort money out of people and kill them in horrific accidents before they were old enough for GTA.
The series has gone a little quiet lately, but it bounced back onto the scene with Rollercoaster Tycoon Touch, a free-to-play mobile edition which generated a fair few downloads for Atari and got people talking about the series again.
Not one to back down on a good thing, Atari is now bringing the mobile edition to Switch, revamped and redesigned to be a premium experience, and our early look at it from GDC is definitely promising.
What goes up…
If you’ve played a Rollercoaster Tycoon game before, then Rollercoaster Tycoon Switch will be quite familiar from the start. You get a blank space, a bunch of different rides and decorations, and you’re free to build what you want.
