RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures, a new entry in the long-running park management series exclusive to Nintendo Switch has been announced, partially crowdfunded, and shown off by Atari throughout 2018. Now, Atari and developer Nvizzio Creations let us know when exactly RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures will be launching for Nintendo’s hybrid console in North America and Europe.
As previously mentioned, the game will be releasing in Europe first later this month on November 29. According to Atari, distribution of the physical release is actually being handled by Bigben Interactive, a notable British publisher that recently acquired developers Eko Software and Kylotonn Racing. Afterwards, RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures will be released in North America on December 13, with distribution being handled by classic-console hardware manufacturer AtGames.
According to Atari CEO Fred Chesnais, the development and distribution process of RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures actually perfectly encapsulates the company’s overall business strategy going forward. Atari will focus on making good games while outsourcing other parts of process to other companies in order to turn a profit:
“This announcement illustrates our strategy. It highlights our overall corporate plan – first our ability to produce high-quality games, second to outsource some segments of the value chain to key industry players, and lastly, it keeps us on track to reach our objective of profitable growth for the current financial year.”
Atari’s RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures seems like it will be a faithful continuation of the long-running series. The series has been going through a rough patch the last couple years after RollerCoaster Tycoon World was received poorly. While this game is made by the same developer, it seems to be more in line with the originals and with what people liked about RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch.
In addition to featuring Adventure/Campaign, Scenario, and Sandbox modes, RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures for Nintendo Switch also is trying to stand out with a choose-your-own-adventure style Event System in Adventure mode and more “intuitive” and “streamlined” menus when it comes to park and economy management. On Nintendo Switch, the game will display at 1080p when docked and 720p in handheld mode.
