Update 2 Microsoft has just informed us that the game "was briefly made available in the marketplace for Windows Phone customers to download and play for a short period while testing." So it's only available in a few markets until it completes the company's certification process.

Update: Currently, the game appears to be US-only.

As previously announced, Microsoft has launched a new entry in its long running Zoo Tycoon simulation game series, Zoo Tycoon Friends, as a free-to-play game for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 devices.
