Players can experience Frontier’s acclaimed dinosaur park management game in the palm of their hand and master chaos on the move
Cambridge, UK – 3 November, 2020. Build the ultimate dinosaur park on the go with Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition, out now on Nintendo Switch™ on the EU eShop and from 7pm PST on the US eShop. Developed and published by Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV), in collaboration with Universal Games and Digital Platforms, this iconic park management game combines all the wonder and majesty of the successful 2018 original title with a wealth of additional content, to bring the ultimate Jurassic World experience to Nintendo’s hybrid handheld console.
In Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition, players construct a series of epic dinosaur parks across Las Cinco Muertes (The Five Deaths), a chain of five islands containing treacherous weather conditions and testing terrain worthy of its ominous name. Players start by sending out intrepid dig teams to unearth rare fossilised remains, then ordering gifted scientists to extract and bioengineer the precious DNA encased within, reviving awe-inspiring animals extinct for millennia.
Packed with every piece of DLC released since launch, Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition lets players dive into three major narrative expansions, where they can discover stunning new composite species in Jurassic World Evolution: The Secrets of Dr. Wu, including the audacious Ankylodocus and spine-tingling Spinoraptor; re-home dinosaurs following the cataclysmic events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in Jurassic World Evolution: Claire’s Sanctuary; and restore the site on which it all began in Jurassic World Evolution: Return to Jurassic Park, as Drs. Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, and Ian Malcolm accompany players on the path to redemption.
The inclusion of these key characters, voiced by the talented actors who brought them to life on-screen, brings next-level authenticity to Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition. Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, BD Wong, and Bryce Dallas Howard all reprise their famous roles from the blockbuster Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment films, narrating events with signature magic and flair and allowing players to truly immerse themselves as they follow in their footsteps and help life find a way.
In addition, there’s the challenge mode, which introduces an adjustable difficulty for an enticing test of skill; the customisable sandbox mode, offering fans the opportunity to tailor their experience as they build and manage majestic dinosaur-studded vistas without financial constraint; and, of course, four Dinosaur Packs and the Raptor Squad Skin Collection, adding even more variety and marvel to the star attractions.
All of this, as well as the stunning visuals and optimised performance expected from a studio with Frontier’s pedigree, is available to play right now on Nintendo Switch in Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition for £49.99/$59.99/€54.99, available exclusively on the Nintendo eShop.

About Jurassic World Evolution
Jurassic World Evolution places players in charge of operations on the legendary Isla Nublar and the surrounding islands of the Muertes Archipelago. Players can construct attractions, containment, and research facilities as they build their own Jurassic World. They can bioengineer new dinosaur species that think, feel and react intelligently to the world around them, and they can choose to control the big picture with deep, accessible management options, or go hands-on to confront challenges on the ground or in the air in action-based gameplay. Every choice leads to a different path, and spectacular challenges arise when “life finds a way.”
