A sequel to the hit zoo simulation Zoo Tycoon has been announced for the PC by Microsoft Game Studios. The sequel features 30 new animals, a zoom feature and 3D graphics. Zoo Tycoon has won numerous awards for it's kid-friendly animal raising concept, such as the coveted Bologna New Media Prize.

Here is an excerpt of the Microsoft press release, courtesy of Game

Easy to start and easy to play, "Zoo Tycoon 2" gets players up close and interacting with the animals and zoo, offering intuitive controls and fun tutorials that allow players of all ages to enjoy the game right out of the box. Players are immersed in the zoo experience with new features including the Zoo Guest mode, in which players can walk around and enjoy the game like visitors on a day at the zoo; Zoo Keeper mode, which allows players to interact with their animals as never before; and a new Photo Mode. Players can take pictures of their favorite animals and guests and share them online with friends. A Zoopedia, chock full of entertaining and interesting facts about animals, rounds out the new and improved features of the upcoming game.
