Frontier have decided to let Switch players in on the console theme park management fun this year, announcing that RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition will be coming to Nintendo Switch and PC on 24th September. No, it’s not as new and shiny as Planet Coaster will be on other consoles, but look… it’s still a classic of the genre.
The game has been revived for the Nintendo Switch with completely new controls to work on the Joy-Con, enhanced visuals and both the Soaked! and Wild! expansion packs. As for why it’s coming to PC, the game will also be in widescreen for the first time and improved compatibility for newer PC hardware.
The game will take you through dozens of scenarios as you kit out your parks with over 300 coasters and rides, 500 scenery pieces, 60 shops and services, and 20 animals to look after. There’s also a Sandbox Mode, and through it all you’ll be fiddling with park finances, shops and staffing to make sure the park and keep on growing and growing.
Over on other consoles, there’s the upcoming release of Planet Coaster Console Edition. The game is coming out for PS4, Xbox One, PS5 and Xbox Series X and S later this year, with the much more up to date visuals and game design of the 2016 PC game being brought to gamepad with a few new tweaks and game mechanics thrown in for good measure. We got to go hands on with Planet Coaster a little while ago – read our preview here.
But with RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition, Frontier have decided to make sure you’ve got some coaster and theme park management that you can take with you.
