System: Wii Release date: 17/09/2009

As of May 20th, 2014, the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service was discontinued and it is now no longer possible to use online features of Nintendo DS/DSi and Wii software such as online play, matchmaking, competitions and leaderboards. For more information, please visit our Support section.

Following two intergalactic outings on Nintendo DS, Spectrobes: Origins arrives exclusively on Wii as you once again bring the fight to the evil Krawl forces menacing the planetary system. With all-new Spectrobes to excavate and evolve, two-player cooperative play and a time-twisting, mind-bending plot, Spectrobes: Origins will draw you into a new dimension of excitement.

Fans of the original Spectrobes titles will need no introduction to the heroes, Rallen and Jenna, members of the Nanairo Planetary Patrol who are charged with keeping the galaxy safe. If you're new to the series, it won't take you long to get absorbed in the gripping story and the intuitive gameplay. Spectrobes: Origins does much more than simply move the story of the series forward. Inter-dimensional portals carry the heroes to a world where past and present merge and the truth behind a whole host of intriguing mysteries from the first two titles is revealed through flashback sequences.

Making progress in the game depends upon excavating fossils from which mysterious creatures called Spectrobes can be awakened. These creatures can then be controlled in order to hunt for other Spectrobes, do battle with enemies or get them to evolve into more powerful forms. The excavation process is more sophisticated than ever as you retrieve the fossils in full 3D, with the unique controls made possible by the Wii Remote allowing you to pick up tools and point to precisely where you want to use them. You’ll choose between a range of tools, including bombs, drills and hammers, and you'll need to keep your wits about you during excavation as there will be perils to contend with such as steam, poison, oil and magma.

As you collect the Spectrobes and build up their power, you’ll need to think strategically in order to put together an unbeatable team to grapple with the nefarious Krawl. Proper preparation is the key to success and Spectrobes: Origins lets you construct your own customised virtual rooms in which to train your forces. By putting together the optimum environment for your Spectrobes, you'll be able to get the very best out of them and leave the enemy reeling when you come to do battle in the field.

Brimming with new features to discover, Spectrobes to excavate and enemies to contend with, Spectrobes: Origins is the next evolutionary step in intergalactic action and adventure.

  • Two-player cooperative play lets you team up to take on the enemy. 
  • Large-scale real-time boss battles demand both tactical skill and speed.
  • Involved, engaging storyline flips between past and present and reveals surprising secrets.
  • New Spectrobes, minerals and more can be unlocked using a special code input system.
