Spore Hero and Spore Hero Arena
Go Gold

The epic fight to save the galaxy is
almost here as Spore Hero and Spore Hero Arena go gold – officially completed
and ready for manufacturing! Built from the ground up exclusively for the Wii
and Nintendo DS platforms, Spore Hero and Spore Hero Arena introduce a new level
of action-packed adventure, creativity and combat to the critically acclaimed
Spore franchise. Both games will be available at North American retailers on
Oct. 6 2009 and internationally on Oct. 9, 2009.

Spore Hero delivers the unparalleled
creative freedom of Spore in an action-adventure game created exclusively for
the Wii. Set in a rich and vibrant 3D world, Spore Hero empowers the player to
become a hero as they embark on an epic quest to save their creature’s home
planet from destruction. Along this journey, players will engage in challenging
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 customize
creatures in the revolutionary Spore Creature Creator, can change the way
creatures will play and fight in the world. Players can also utilize their
brawling skills in a dynamic multiplayer mode, where they battle their friends
with their own customized creature to become the ‘baddest’ Spore hero around!

Spore Hero Arena catapults players
into a galaxy filled with fun and intense 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.

Available for $49.99 MSRP, Spore
Hero is rated E10+ by the ESRB. Spore Hero Arena is available for $29.99 MSRP
and is rated E by the ESRB.
