Content made available this week includes six creatures:

  • Windalo
  • Windino
  • Shasharp

Also available is a special Nanairo Sword for Rallen.

Spectrobes: Beyond The Portals for NDS continues the story of Rallen and Jeena, interplanetary patrol officers who discover, excavate, awaken and train mysterious fossilized creatures known as Spectrobes and then use them to battle enemies. The story surrounds the origins of mysterious portals that lead to distant dimensions.

Developed by Kyoto, Japan-based Jupiter Corp., the studio behind Spectrobes, Spectrobes: Beyond The Portals has a wealth of new features, including an entirely new story; a new three-dimensional perspective; a map to assist with exploration; new excavation and battle features; more creatures; and the debut of an online battle system utilizing the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Spectrobes: Beyond The Portals also includes DGamer, Disney Interactive Studios' innovative new technology that provides a fun, connected online game community for Disney video game fans.

In Spectrobes: Beyond The Portals, players can take on the role of either Rallen or, for the first time, Jeena. Jeena uses her research and technological skills so the duo can solve puzzles and complete their missions.

With the game's inclusion of DGamer, players can customize a unique 3D avatar, earn exclusive Disney content, interact and chat with their friends via their Nintendo DS using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection or on a computer through the Disney.com website. DGamer is the first online community developed exclusively for Disney Gamers and will be offered in North America in Nintendo DS games from Disney Interactive Studios with a future launch scheduled in other global regions.
