Introducing Spectrobes

The success of Kingdom Hearts sparked Buena Vista Games to start their own anime styled RPG series. They pulled Jupiter who did Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories in the mix to develop Spectrobes, a new franchise that is starting out on the DS. Spectrobes stars two Interplanetary Patrol officers Rallen and Jeena who discover fossilized creatures called Spectrobes. Rallen and Jeena set out to excavate these friendly monsters because they are the key to defeating Krawl, an evil force that could destroy the galaxy. To excavate Spectrobes players blow air into the microphone to clear dust then use the touch screen to pull the fossil out. Once that’s done the Spectrobes can be trained and learn to respond to a player’s voice. Does this remind anyone else of Pokemon? Perhaps the only difference is the gameplay which has real time battles instead of turn based combat. Fighting is a bit simplistic one button is mapped for using Rallen’s sword and another for his laser. Spectrobes still has a long way to go, but Buena Vista Games is looking beyond the DS for the series. If it is a hit they will bring the series to other forms of media. Spectrobes TV anyone? Below we have some screen shots of an early build of the game.
