The theme park construction and management game will be resurrected by publisher Atari and developer n-Space.
The 3DS version will be built from the ground up for the system and will feature a full 3D graphical engine.
Rollercoaster Tycoon 3D will also offer a new gameplay mode with unique unlockable content, as well as a 'Park Sandbox' mode.
The Rollercoaster Tycoon series debuted on PC in 1999, and has since seen two sequels and several expansions.
Last month, Electronic Arts unveiled a new free-to-play version of Theme Park coming to iPhone and iPad.
Rollercoaster Tycoon 3D will be available from March 2012.
