News: LucasArts loopy roller coaster game gets a next-gen sequel.



LucasArts has announced a second Thrillville game is in the works and it's scheduled for October. Once again developed by Frontier Developments, Thrillville: Off the Rails is coming to the PS2, Wii, Xbox 360, PSP and PC. A DS version is being developed by DC Studios to take better advantage of the stylus control.

A new storyline ties together 34 minigames (14 new ones in addition to the 20 from Thrillville) and more than 100 missions and with these features:

  • Experience the visceral fun of interacting with a theme park you create.

  • Build and ride your own creations, talk and joke with all your guests, and play dozens of minigames.

  • Use the Wii Remote and Nintendo DS stylus in innovative ways to develop roller coasters and play minigames with the flick of your wrist.

  • Create 20 death-defying WHOA Coasters such as these:
    --- Hotrod Stunt: A nitro boost propels a car across a broken track.
    --- Pendulizer: A giant arm grabs the car just before a gap in the track, whips it around in a full circle, then sets it down on the other side.
    --- Escape Drop: The track holds the car stationary as it lifts itself from level ground to a full 90-degree drop. Then it lets go.

  • Visit 15 themed areas, like Battleville, Winterville, Spaceville and Aeroville, all spread throughout five new parks.

  • Distinguish your rides even more with enhanced customization options. Attach animatronics, flowers and flaming hoops to all of your coasters and rides.

  • Smarter guests, better dialogue, and more focused two-way conversation make Thrillville's socialization aspects even more amusing than before.

  • Conversation more directly impacts the story than in the original Thrillville.

  • Play 34 minigames ? 14 new, 20 returning from the original Thrillville but with new levels. Examples of new minigames include the following:
    --- Robo K.O.: Hit, bop and block with these boxing robots.
    --- Sparkle Quest: Delightful 2D platforming action on Sparkle Island.
    --- Bandito Chinchilla: A classic side-scrolling beat-?em-up?where you're a boxing Chihuahua!
    --- Tank Frenzy: Get combative in this vertically scrolling shoot-?em-up.

  • All minigames feature leaderboards for Xbox Live.

  • DC Studios is creating the entirely unique Nintendo DS version from the ground up to best take advantage of the handheld's touch-screen capabilities.

    We'll have more on Thrillville: Off the Rails soon.
