Nokia and Activision today announced that Spider-Man 2 will be released for the N-Gage game deck under a license between Spider-Man Merchandising and Activision. Taking on the role of the famed super hero Spider-Man, mobile gamers will be able to swing, web sling and jump through four fully 3D levels, providing an amazingly dynamic environment on a handheld gaming device. Fifteen additional 2D levels provide a challenging arena to combat a wide range of enemies, including new enemy bosses such as the Lizard and Doc Ock that have their own unique attack moves. Web slinging gamers will also be able to upload their best performances to the N-Gage Arena, as well as unlock additional content for the game.
“The immersive 3D graphics and gameplay that ‘Spider-Man’ 2 brings to the N-Gage will amaze and inspire gamers,” said Pasi Polonen, Director of Game Publishing, Games Business Unit, Nokia. “Together with the new levels, characters and plotline, fans of Spider-Man will find plenty of action to keep them coming back for more.”
“‘Spider-Man 2’ on the N-Gage delivers a gripping blend of 2D and 3D gameplay that immerses players in the world of the upcoming feature film,” said Dave Anderson, Senior Director of Business Development and Licensing for Activision, Inc. “The addition of wireless connectivity brings a unique experience that handheld gamers will truly enjoy anytime, anywhere.”
The engrossing plotline is revealed through 3D cutscenes that will inspire players to explore completely new 3D levels and hunt for power-ups, secrets and special items. Spider-Man 2 is expected to be available for the N-Gage game deck in the summer of 2004.
