Let's Build a Zoo PS5 PS4 1

It’s been a big day for new releases, but this might just be the most exciting of them all: pixel art tycoon title Let’s Build a Zoo is coming to the PS5 and PS4 in September, following a successful stint on PC last year. The game – developed by Springloaded and published by No More Robots – sees you creating your very own magical menagerie, where you’ll be in charge of hiring the staff, breeding the animals, and pleasing your paying guests.

The big twist with this title is the animal splicing system, which allows you to combine the 500 animal types to create up to 300,000 different variants. This game has already proven a huge hit on PC – it’s sold over 150,000 units according to the press materials – so we suspect it’s going to prove similarly successful on consoles. There’ll even be a physical release for those of you who prefer those, which will include the new Jurassic Park-inspired Dinosaur Island DLC for free.
