Spectrobes was released in March 2007 and sold over 1 million units worldwide. It was the first IP (intellectual properly) from Disney Interactive Studios not to come from other media, such as movies or television. This just goes to show how original and unique the video games market today is.
That's right, at its core, Spectrobes is a game. It's an action/RPG game for the Nintendo DS. In Spectrobes, you excavate Spectrobe fossils using the stylus and touch screen of the Nintendo DS and you use your own voice to awaken them. You can excavate minerals and feed them to your Spectrobes to make them stronger, and then take them out for some super-intense battles.
