Details: Ubisoft announced today that they will be releasing Zoo Mania this summer, the first zoo simulation game on the Nintendo 3DS. Zoo Mania, developed by Marvelous Entertainment and published by Ubisoft, will offer players a remarkably fun and realistic zoo management experience, thanks to the capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS.
Players will strive to build a world-class zoo destination by choosing their animals, building their habitats and training their animals to attract more guests to their park. Players can watch and virtually touch the animals as they practically jump off the screen, showing off their personality and skills. Plus, with more than 100 creatures, each with their own realistic 3D effects, movements and noises, Zoo Mania offers more than any other handheld zoo simulation game.
As players progress in the game, they unlock more and more realistically rendered 3D animals to collect and discover. The rarer the animal, the more traffic the zoo will receive. Additionally, players can use the Nintendo 3DS gyro sensor to capture their animals’ talents as if the handheld were a video camera. The better shots the player captures, the more positive feedback they will get from their audience and the more successful their zoo will become.
Zoo Mania is an ideal game for any animal lover, simulation fan or for those who want to leverage the new technologies of the Nintendo 3DS.
