The game Spore, created by Will Wright (the guy responsible for The Sims) exploded onto the scene in 2008 and quickly became one of the most popular games of the year among gamers of all ages and skill-levels. This online game for PC and Mac allows players to control the development of a species from it’s single-cell beginning through to it’s emersion as a space-traveling culture.
Yesterday, we learned that Spore will be spreading to the DS and Wii this fall with two new and unique titles. In Spore Hero, players will create a character and embark on a journey to save their homeworld in an action-adventure game for the Wii. Found throughout the game are more than 250 items to collect that can be used in the Spore Creature Creator.
Spore Hero Arena for the DS is a follow-up to the first DS game, Spore Creatures, and will place players in a 3D arena where the creatures they have created will battle enemies and collect new parts and abilities. Spore Hero Arena will also feature a multiplayer option allowing up to four people to battle over a Wi-Fi connection.
Look for both of these games in stores this fall. Spore, the original online game for PC and Mac plus Spore Creatures for the DS are available now.
