LOS ANGELES--LucasArts has announced that Thrillville will be shown at this year's E3. The theme park creator will be released on the PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and Xbox in Q3 2006, and is being developed by acclaimed British outfit Frontier Developments.
The game offers a fully interactive and customizable amusement park in which you can build and ride roller coasters and more than 100 other attractions. You also have to take care of park guests, but you'll be able to unwind with dozens of minigames.
LucasArts promises that Thrillville's building model will be able to use with console controllers. The 75-plus rides include sedate carnival rides all the way up to wooden, corkscrew, and inverted roller coasters. There'll also be go-kart tracks, mini golf, and bumper cars that you can design and then play in four-player party games. You can explore the whole park on foot and chat with visitors to gauge how much they like your park.
The game is on course for a Q3 2006 release and will be shown at this year's E3 in LA, which starts tomorrow.
