Gameplay

Information is limited, but IGN recently went hands on with Spore Hero in a E3 preview. The creature editor will be ported with all the parts from the base game as well as the Creepy and Cute parts pack.

Development

A Wii spinoff of the game had been mentioned by Will Wright several times, such as in his October 26, 2007 interview with The Guardian.[2] Buechner confirmed it, revealing that plans for a Wii version were underway, and that the game would be built from the ground up and would take advantage of the Wii Remote, stating, "We're not porting it over. You know, we're still so early in design and prototyping that I don't know where we're going to end up, so I don't want to lead you down one path. But suffice to say that it's being developed with the Wii controls and technology in mind."[3] Eventually, a spin-off under the title "Spore Hero", an adventure game built ground up for the Wii with a heavier focus on evolution, was announced as part of the 2009 lineup along with "Spore Hero Arena" and "Spore Galactic Adventures""[4]

The first details of Spore Hero began to emerge when MTV's Totilo had an interview with designer Lucy Bradshaw. [5]. In it she said that the team was taking a look a Wii Motion Plus for better motion sensitivity. On May 12, EA sent out their official press release for Spore Hero and Spore Hero Arena. [6]. Several previews began to emerge later.[7][8][9][10]. At an event in Los Angeles, Gamespot got another look at Spore Hero. [11]. IGN and Gamezone also posted previews as part of their pre-E3 lineup. [12][13]. Spore Hero was on show at E3 2009[14][15] and at Comic-Con.[16] In late July, Maxis conducted an interview with several of the major fansites.[17] During it they revealed that one of the choices they made during development was to focus on the story-line of the game. This focus meant that they had to detract from the games online capabilities.
