Atari Announces Upcoming Games Coming to Android – Roller Coaster Tycoon, Dungeons and Dragons Coming Soon

When I was younger, I played Roller Coaster Tycoon until the disc broke, so Atari’s announcement of upcoming Android games today has got me really excited. In a press release today, Jim Wilson, CEO of Atari said that they have been “focused on developing mobile games based on some of Atari’s most iconic and enduring franchises.” Roller Coaster Tycoon, which allows you to build an amusement park from the ground up will be out in the first quarter of 2013. 

The other game that was announced for Android today was Dungeons and Dragons: Warbands. Billed as “coming soon” this will be a turned-based strategy game that users will choose from one of four characters and build them up to make them awesome. A couple of big name titles coming to Android in the near future, expect us to be playing these when they come out.

  • Cedar Point fan

  • WOW, JUST WOW. Roller Coaster Tycoon on Android? well, after thar I just can say: “iPhone who?”

  • Cant wait!

  • spunker88

    Sounds awesome! I remember playing this on a Pentium 1 with Windows 95, modern phones and tablets should handle it no problem when ported. I imagine most of their work will be getting it finger friendly, better dialog boxes, multitouch zooming. I hope its a decent port, I will buy it!

  • Me and my buddy were just playing some RCT this summer, please be RCT2!

  • EvanTheGamer

    HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL yeahhhhhhhhhhhh! Have been waiting so damn long for Atari to bring our beloved Android the game that I played so much on PC for hours on end as a child, RollerCoaster Tycoon! This is great news, indeed!

    Can I still build the Whoa Belly that shoots the car off the tracks???

    • Dorian_at_ATT

      Oh, I loved that one. And the one roller coaster design that crashed in the rain after 1 year… it was like clockwork.

  • Chris Pinola

    RCT?!?! I would buy that even if it were like $10

  • I have a feeling this may just end up being a port of the 3DS Roller Coaster Tycoon. Most of the reviews I’ve seen for that have been mediocre at best, so don’t get your hopes up too high for it.

  • This is amazing. I’m still waiting on Jet Grind Radio and then I’ll be content haha

  • Finire

    Ok, they’ve got my attention with the D&D. Tycoon looks fun just for the sake of fun, but I am a huge D&D fan… It figures right? But the moment this comes out I’ll be getting it. I would purchase even at a $7~10 price tag. Just please keep IAP away from this and we’ll be all good.

  • metool6

    and so it begins

  • Currently freaking out. Please let rct be good.

    Edit: I have rct installed on my computer right now

    • FAL_Fan

      As do I! And luckily I just found the disc after rummaging through my desk and I can play it again!

  • FAL_Fan

    I have been thinking to myself that roller coaster tycoon would be awesome to play on android and somehow they read my mind! This I shall most certainly buy! Good find!

  • Phobic

    From what I’ve been reading it sounds like this might be a port of the 3DS version which is getting horrible reviews.

    I need an android tablet now

  • C-Law

    Hell yes! I played so much roller coaster tycoon through middle school!

  • Wes

    RCT (Or at least the isographic version) would be a good port to touchscreens. Can’t wait to build a mobile version of Mr. Bones’s Wild Ride.

  • Capt. Crunch

    Shut up and take my money!!!

  • and this is the reason that’ll force me to buy a tablet

    My favorite story about Roller Coaster Tycoon: A friend’s daughter was playing, and the friend noticed that any time a rider got ill, she would drop them to their death. The daughter explained that helping sick riders cost you money, but you didn’t lose money if they just died. My friend said, “congratulations, honey, you’ve started an HMO!” LOL

      Why can I hit like on this comment only once?!?!

  • Please be a good port. Please be a good port. Please be a good port.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Agreed, agreed, agreed!

  • Roller Coaster Tycoon!?!!?????! Conniption imminent…

  • No way! I played this game for hours as a kid, building my theme parks up with death trap rides. Now I can do it on the go! Sucks about the slightly far off release date though.
