News: RollerCoaster Tycoon announced for 3DS

You know what's always been missing from games such as Theme Park World and RollerCoaster Tycoon?  Full immersion!  Sure you could ride your creations before but did you ever feel like you were actually on them?  Well now you can make yourself feel just as sick as your little virtual park goers, as Atari have announced in a press release that the latest malevolent god game of all things loops and corkscrews will be available on the 3DS.

Due for release sometime in 2012 Atari have confirmed that RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D will allow complete creative freedom over your metal monoliths.  Developed by n-space the 3DS version will allow players to take part in either a "coaster story" mode or a "park sandbox" mode, giving you the choice between beating objectives or just messing around and creating the theme park of your dreams.  Also included in the release will be an "immersive management system", a "new gameplay mode with unlockable content" and "advanced networking capabilities".

If you wan't to see the short teaser video then you can do so after the break.  For the full press release head over to joystiq for more.
