This past weekend, SimCity prompted Chad and I to discuss the disappointing lack of a new RollerCoaster Tycoon game. Then I remembered that -- oh, yeah -- we are getting one: RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D. Not exactly what we had in mind, but we'll all find out soon enough, as the 3DS title is scheduled for release on October 16, 2012.
There's been an unsettling lack of information and media for this game, but the announcement did offer some highlights. RCT 3D has a mode called Coaster Story in which tutorials and park challenges are said to be presented with more of an actual narrative, in addition to first-person coaster riding and support for StreetPass sharing.
In general, this seems to be exactly what you'd expect from a portable version. No more, no less. Considering how popular the series is, that's a bit disappointing.
