Spore will make its highly-anticipated debut on the Nintendo Wii with Spore Hero, an all-new adventure game focusing on creativity and evolution that was built from the ground up for the unique controls for Wii. Spore Hero takes players on an exciting adventure through a beautiful, colorful world. Spore Hero: Arena for Nintendo DS builds on the success of 2008's hit Spore Creatures and allows players to create fully-3D Spore creatures and take them into battle with an array of other creatures across the galaxy.
