Built from the ground up exclusively for the Wii and Nintendo DS platforms, Spore Hero and Spore Hero Arena will be released on the 9th October 2009.

Spore Hero delivers the creative freedom of Spore in an action-adventure game created exclusively for the Wii. Set in a vibrant 3D world, Spore Hero empowers the player to become the hero as they embark on a quest to save their creature’s home planet from destruction. Along this journey, players engage in fun battles, and solve puzzles to collect and unlock more than 250 new creature parts, all with unique abilities. These parts, which can be used to customise creatures in the Spore Creature Creator, can change the way creatures will play and combat in the world. Players can also utilise their brawling skills in a dynamic multiplayer mode, where they fight their friends with their own customised creature to become the ‘baddest’ Spore hero around!

Spore Hero Arena catapults players into a galaxy filled with arena-based combat. Featuring an all-new story set in the same universe as Spore Hero, Spore Hero Arena takes players on a quest to save planets in their galaxy from an evil force. Throughout the game, players create their own unique gladiator hero creature and guide it from planet to planet as they fight enemy creatures, collect new parts, gain upgrades and unlock special abilities that will benefit their hero. Developed with multiplayer capabilities in mind, Spore Hero Arena also allows players to battle with up to three friends locally or play with a friend over Wi-Fi, taking the Spore gameplay experience to an entirely new and interactive level.

Spore Hero for Wii will set you back £39.99, while Spore Hero Arena for Nintendo DS will be priced at £29.99.
