Spore Hero (Wii), Spore: Hero Arena (DS), Spore: Creature Keeper (PC), and Spore: Galactic Adventures expansion coming in 2009

Spore for PCEA UK has confirmed several new Spore games for Wii, DS & PC, as well as a Spore expansion pack. Yes, Spore fans are finally getting that Wii version of Spore in Spore: Hero for Wii. Another new game tie-in will be Spore: Hero Arena for DS, a standalone Spore: Creature Keeper on PC, and more Spore PC expansion packs with the first of them titled Spore: Galactic Adventures. All of them will be arriving in 2009.

But what about those Spore version on Xbox 360 & PS3 that the game’s creator Will Wright talked about back in 2006? Spore senior producer Morgan Roarty had this to say: “I think first and foremost we’d have to have the right design. The obvious out of the box thinking would be to port the PC product… but I don’t think that’s really the right design. [We’d] possibly go deeper into space… but in my mind, before something like that would get greenlit, it would have to be the right design.”

  • More details on each new Maxis game below:

    * The Wii debut Spore: Hero is an avatar-focused, adventure-based game set in “a beautiful new world”.

    * The second Spore game to hit DS after Spore Creatures will be Spore: Hero Arena. Nothing’s been officially announced yet on what it’ll be about, but the name suggests a Wii title tie-in.

    Spore: Creature Keeper is a standalone PC title targeted at a younger audience. It’s described as being “like a mini-Sims” game, where players nurture a newly born creature that has “Sims motives like energy and bladder.”

    * Maxis is also developing the core game’s first expansion pack titled Spore: Galactic Adventures, formerly known as Adventure Creator. The expansion’s targeting a “deeper variety of gameplay” based around Spore’s space stage, and the overwhelming majority of its new content will be created by the Spore community using new editing tools that’ll allow players to customise their own planets and create their own adventures to share with other gamers. A bit like LittleBigPlanet then.
