Ultimate Spider-Man Mobile Game Launching

by SuperHeroHype

Leading mobile publisher MFORMA has released its latest Marvel title, Ultimate Spider-Man. The new action platformer, based on Marvel’s popular “Ultimate Spider-Man” comic character and Activision, Inc.’s console video game of the same title, is now available to mobile users in Europe and the U.S. and will soon be available in Asia. Featuring superior graphics and animation, detailed action sequences and plot elements, and the unique ability to play the game as Spider-Man or as Spider-Man’s arch enemy, Venom, Ultimate Spider-Man is the highest quality Spider-Man adaptation ever made for the mobile platform.

“Fans will love how Spider-Man comes vividly to life using a simple single-button web-slinging, wall-climbing mechanic,” said Brian Selzer, MFORMA’s senior director for Marvel Mobile. “They’ll also enjoy being able to play as either Spider-Man or as Venom with two distinctly different gameplay experiences. As Spider-Man, players get to wrap up criminals in webbing, rescue civilians, and fight the nefarious villain, Venom. As Venom, players can indulge their dark side and catch civilians with tentacles, feed on them for strength, and try to hunt down Spider-Man before he can save the day. Overall, the graphics and animations are certain to please even the most discerning Spider-Man fans.”

Ultimate Spider-Man is based on the “Ultimate Spider-Man” series of Spider-Man comics and the Activision console version of the same name. It is a 2-D sideways-scrolling action game that includes a variety of challenging missions, interesting characters and surprises, as well as splash panels from the comics that provide an added layer of interest. Players will recognize villains such as the Green Goblin and Shocker and will feel part of Spider-Man’s world in urban scenes with civilians, police officers, and gangs passing by. When playing as Spider-Man, you can use a wide range of moves, including the wall jump, web swing and rebound attack. When playing as Venom, you can use super jumps, tentacle combos, and the scary “feed attack” while you destroy the city or “feed” on your victims. The game features 24 levels of play, 12 each for Spider-Man and Venom, and a simple, highly-responsive control system that makes this game instantly satisfying to play.

“Comic book adventures will never lose their appeal and ;Ultimate Spider-Man; brings one of the world’s most beloved comic book adventures to the mobile platform with careful attention to detail,” said Selzer. “The game is a joy to play on many levels-it’s fun to experience the incredibly smooth animation of Spider-Man climbing walls, slinging webs and otherwise performing his famous Spider-Man antics, and it’s fun to wreak havoc as the villainous Venom, facing off against the ultimate web-slinging Super Hero.”

by SuperHeroHype

Activision, Inc. announced today that the company has signed an agreement with Spider-Man Merchandising L.P., a limited partnership between Marvel Entertainment, Inc. and Sony Pictures Consumer Products Inc., to extend its exclusive worldwide publishing rights to the phenomenally successful “Spider-Man” motion pictures through 2017. The license grants Activision the right to publish entertainment software products based on subsequent “Spider-Man” movie sequels or new television series.

Under its current agreement with Spider-Man® Merchandising, Activision will develop and publish interactive entertainment games based on Columbia Pictures/Marvel Entertainment, Inc.’s upcoming feature film Spider-Man 3, which is set for release in May 2007. To date, Activision has published games based on Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2.

For calendar 2004, Spider-Man 2 was the #1 movie-based videogame in the U.S. according to NPD Funworld and for calendar 2002, Spider-Man was a top-five selling title in the U.S., according to NPD.

“This agreement allows Activision to continue bringing our own brand of interactive magic and vision to this unique, evergreen property and to build on the success we have already achieved with the ‘Spider-Man’ movies,” said Mike Griffith, President and CEO, Activision Publishing, Inc. “Games based on this phenomenally successful property bring the film’s popular characters to life and allow consumers to extend their experience with original missions and additional Marvel characters beyond those of the ‘Spider-Man’ movies.”

Tim Rothwell, Worldwide President, Consumer Media Group, Marvel Entertainment, added, “Activision has done a tremendous job in translating ‘Spider-Man’ into compelling, top-selling interactive games. Given their performance and long-term commitment to the franchise, as well as their creative excellence Activision is the ideal partner for movie-based ‘Spider-Man’ games, a business that complements our recent extension of their interactive license for ‘classic’ Spider-Man.”

According to Bruno Maglione, President, Marvel International Inc., “Activision has consistently demonstrated their ability to execute ‘Spider-Man’ theatrical games on a global basis. We are pleased that both Marvel and Activision will be extending our relationship for many years to come on this important franchise.”
