Spider-Man Unlimited is Going All-New, All-Different!


The world of Spider-Man Unlimited is not immune to the after-effects of Marvel’s Secret Wars™, and the Amazing Spider-Man himself, along with his Spider-Man 2099 counterpart Miguel O’Hara will soon be donning their redesigned suits in the beloved endless runner.

As the announcement on Marvel.com revealed, the synergy and mutualistic relationship that Gameloft, Marvel, and Marvel publishing shares is really opening up doors for the gaming world, and Spider-Man Unlimited is a perfect example of that. As their relationship grows, we not only get to experience Peter Parker and the Web Warriors stories through a comic medium, but also through our phones in an addictive and striking game.

I once mentioned in my first article that Spider-Island is one of my favorite Spider-Man story arcs; well, fans of the event can rejoice, as the 2011 event is coming to Spider-Man Unlimited this month, and as the people of New York are unwittingly gaining spider-powers, 10 new characters tied to the story arc will be swinging their way into the game, including (a throwback to one of the best moments in Spider-Island) Mary Jane in her first ever mobile game appearance -not counting her manga version which you can win in the current event. Their preview even has a throwback to one of the more popular covers of the event.

This comes at a perfect time as the Spider-Island Battleworld issues have just been released, and the game’s content will tie in nicely with the comics. Gameloft has also announced a brand new social mode, which they say is the biggest new feature since the game’s release… consider me intrigued and excited! Are you as stoked as I am for the new update? Isn’t that 2099 suit awesome? Well stay tuned for more Spider-Man Unlimited news, as I have something big in the studio for you guys.
