RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures is hitting the Switch soon, and you'll be happy to know that microtransactions aren't part of the deal. In an interview with DualShockers, Atari's Mark Perloff flat-out denied the presence of microtransactions. That said, he did say the team is looking into DLC.
“No microtransactions. This is a premium game, through-and-through. For DLC, the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise has a great tradition of awesome expansions, so that’s definitely something we’ve been talking about. For now though, we’re focusing on the base game.”
In RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures, players have three distinct game modes to build their entertainment empire — Adventure Mode (a spin on the classic Campaign mode), tricky Scenarios and the open Sandbox. Over 120 wonderfully wacky rides, restaurants, and shops ensure parks burst with eye-catching action, and the intuitive coaster builder lets players create wild, death-defying coasters with ease.

Atari Flashback Classics seems to be stuck in that nebulous void that some games get sucked into. They get announced, and then bounce from release date to release date, never to actually see release. Atari Flashback Classics is definitely in that holding pattern, but perhaps that'll end on Nov. 5th, 2018. That's when Walmart.com says the game is slated for release, and this info was just updated recently. Keep your fingers crossed!
