The internet continues to be speculative over RollerCoaster Tycoon Switch — the investment-based crowdfunding campaign by subsidiary company of Atari, Atari Game Partners. After blowing past their original funding minimum, Atari Game Partners has released a new statement detailing the full game in the hope of capturing more investors.

Released as an updated to their StartEngine campaign, the features list for RollerCoaster Tycoon Switch on Nintendo Switch is fairly extensive, covering game modes, framerate, and everything in between.

First and foremost, the game will features three different types of game modes: campaign, scenario, and sandbox. While the sandbox mode is exactly as you would imagine, it doesn’t sound too much different from they Tycoon Campaign Mode which is described as:

The main mode of the game: Research and discover wild new rides and attractions, expand your land, and grow from a humble park to an Amusement Empire!

However, it does appear that Sandbox Mode will offer unlimited time and resources for your disposal — so people should have the money and time to create monstrosities like Mr. Bones’ Wild Ride. Meanwhile, Scenario Mode will offer a combination of 48 different combinations — 16 scenarios at 3 different difficulty levels — that are set to time limits.

RollerCoaster Tycoon Switch is set to include seven different types of roller coasters with the series-staple Ride Camps, park terraforming, and four different environments (alpine, oasis, canyon, tropics). The game boasts 120 different rides, restaurants, and shops that can be customized with a 50-color deep pallette.

As for the Nintendo Switch specific, technical features the game will be navigatable with the JoyCon controllers as well as touch screen controls. When docked, the game runs at 1080p at 30fps; undocked RollerCoaster Tycoon Switch will run at 720p at 30fps. Last but not least, multiple gave slots will be available so feel free to run the most twisted park that the world has ever seen.

RollerCoaster Tycoon Switch is slated to launch exclusively on Nintendo Switch in 2018.
