Coaster Crazy Deluxe, by LostWinds and RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 developer Frontier Developments, is an upcoming Wii U eShop game that lets you design death-ensuring virtual coasters on the GamePad in order to satiate the "crazies" who visit your diabolically unsafe theme park.
Specific "crazies" have specific demands. The "Professor" carries nitro glycerin, and requires a coaster with a low enough G-force to prevent explosions (since he is a professor of Having a Heart Condition). The Speed Freak, meanwhile, likes fast roller coasters. Oh, and there are zombies.
The price and release date of Coaster Crazy Deluxe have yet to be announced.
15th April 2013. Cambridge, UK: Coasters! Pandas! Zombies! Crashes! Explosions! From Frontier Developments, the creators of RollerCoaster Tycoon® 3 and LostWinds®, comes a rollercoaster game unlike any other – 'Coaster Crazy® Deluxe' for Wii UTM on Nintendo® eShop.
Coaster Crazy Deluxe's innovative blend of Crazy character gameplay challenges and Frontier's incredible, easy to use 3D coaster construction system has players meeting the demands of their Crazy customers in order to build a cash making worldwide coaster empire.
