According to this IGN interview, a free trial version of the Spore Creature Creator will be released in June. It’ll contain a quarter of the final game features, but there’ll be a retail version as well, which will contain the full creature creation kit.
“A trial version of the Spore Creature creator will be available for free through a variety of sources including as a download from Spore.com and in The SimCity Box,” said Maxis’ Patrick Buechner. “There will also be a version of the Creature Creator available at retail. The free Creature Creator has about 25-percent of the creature making parts from Spore. The retail version will have 100 percent. It’s up to the players to choose which version they want, but they’ll all be available at approximately the same time.”
More through the link. No word on how any of this affects Europe. Spore hits in September.

Speaking here, Maxis’s Patrick Buechner has said that Spore’s “priority” is Europe, based on the amount of PC sales the company gets from the region.
“Europe probably represents about 60 per cent or more of our PC business, so getting it right in Europe is going to be a real focus over the next few months,” he said. “Getting the launch right, getting the game working right here, getting those online features working in Europe… Europe is the priority for Spore.”
Spore, Will Wright’s long in-development PC oddity, was confirmed last night for a September release. America will see the game on PC, Mac and DS on September 7, while Europe gets it two days earlier on September 5.
