Yesterday, Electronic Arts Inc. and Maxis announced that Spore would be hitting the shelves some time in September. The first release will include the PC, Macintosh, Nintendo DS, and mobile versions of the game.
The Wii version is in in the design stage right now, and will not come at the same time of PC, Macintosh, Nintendo DS, and mobile version’s release. Right now the developers are mainly concerned with the “core version”, and the Wii version is not their top priority.
The DS and mobile version of the game will be called Spore Creatures
When asked about the Nintendo DS version of the game, Spore Executive Producer, Lucy Bradshaw said “DS players will be able to share stuff with DS players via local network and Wi-Fi.” The PC and Mac versions of the game are like five games in one, the Nintendo DS version of the game focuses on the “Creature” portion of the main game, hence why it’s called Spore Creatures.
The Nintendo DS version of the game will also encompass the core aspects of what Spore is about Creativity, Exploration, and Evolution. The Nintendo DS version will also include more of a quest than its PC counterpart
The North American release is set to be during the weekend of September 7. The European release date of PC, Macintosh, Nintendo DS, and Mobile versions of the game is currently set at September 5th.
