Four New Spore Games Confirmed for PC, DS and Wii


Following last year’s successful launch of Will Wright’s Spore, EA is all geared up to milk the heck out of the franchise like it does with all Maxis games it seems. This week, four new Spore games have been confirmed for releases this year, including an expansion pack to the original game titled Spore Galactic Adventures, a more kid-friendly, Nintendogs-esque creature raiser for PC titled Spore Creature Keeper, an all-new adventure game built from the ground up for Wii titled Spore Hero, and a successor to last year’s DS spin-off Spore Creatures titled Spore Hero Arena.

“Last year was a very exciting year for Maxis with the release of Spore. We were overwhelmed by the massive response to the game from the millions of people that created, shared and played in the Spore universe,” said General Manager of Maxis, Lucy Bradshaw. “This year we’re going to experiment with new experiences that extend the powerful creativity tools of Spore to all-new audiences. With the universe as our backdrop, the only limit in the Spore universe is your own imagination.”

The release schedule for the 2009 Spore invasion is as follows: Spore Galactic Adventures comes out in the spring, and Spore Hero and Spore Hero Arena are slated for the fall. EA’s announcement does not mention a date for Spore Creature Keeper.
