Following the classic tycoon game formula but placing its own aquatic twist on proceedings is Megaquarium, which just so happens to be launching on Switch next month.
The game has you running your very own aquarium filled with hundreds of guests, tens of staff, and almost 100 different aquatic life forms like fish, sharks, crustaceans, corals, jellyfish, and turtles. It won't be filled to the brim straight away, though, as you'll start with just a few tanks and basic stock; your job is to help your aquarium thrive.
There's a 10-level campaign mode which has you learning how to design and manage your aquarium, and you'll also find a sandbox mode with customisable settings and a random challenge generator. Here's a quick feature list and a selection of screenshots to show you a little more:
- Design the layout of your aquarium and create attractive displays
- 100 different species to research, from sharks and crustaceans to corals and jellyfish
- Recruit the right staff for the job so your fish get the best care possible
- Beat the challenging campaign then make your dream aquarium in sandbox mode
The game will be launching on Nintendo Switch and other consoles on 18th October.
