Spore spinoffs for Wii and DS arrive in October

Ready to make some more bulbous, off-putting creatures? EA has announced the official release dates for the latest Spore universe games, Spore Hero for Wii and Spore Hero Arena for DS: October 6 in North America, and October 9 "internationally" (which means PAL regions).

Spore Hero is an action game in which your gross-looking critter searches for creature parts and attempts to save its home from destruction. Spore Hero Arena is a fighting game, in which you fight! It features four-player local multiplayer and one-on-one online play.

Perhaps the most encouraging thing about this announcement is that October is nowhere near Spring 2010. Look at that, two whole games coming out this year.
