Gameloft and Marvel Announce Upcoming 3D Web-Runner Game Spider-Man Unlimited

Jun 10, 2014

Gameloft has just announced an upcoming collaboration with Marvel in the name of Spider-Man: Unlimited. The game will be a 3D web-runner based on the iconic comic character.

The game promises to have all off the Spider-Man basics framed in New York, with the Formidable Sinister Six serving as main villains. According to the press release, different Spider-Man incarnations will also make appearances, and fans can play around with 23 of them. Other villains also show up.

Both Gameloft and Marvel are clearly excited about the group effort. “Gameloft is once again honored to be working with the timeless super-hero universes created by Marvel” says Karine Kaiser, Gaeloft’s VP Marketing & Licensing. “With Spider-Man Unlimited, players can expect a faithful recreation of the Spider-Man comics through an incredible narrative runner experience.”

“Gameloft has done a great job of creating a true to character Spider-Man experience for mobile gamers,” says Javon Frazier, Marvel VP of Games Marketing. “Fans of all ages will enjoy the endless action of running, swinging and fighting through villains across New York City.”

Spider-Man: Unlimited is due out on multiple platforms in the Fall of 2014.

During a HTC event at Google I/O yesterday, Gameloft was showing off their 3D chops with Ultimate Spider-Man: Total Mayhem. We got a short chance to take a look at a new game that Gameloft tailored to the new 3D capable Android handsets. Spider-Man was one of our favorite iOS games of recent memory from Gameloft. Soon it will be out on Android and in 3D if you have the right device.

The game itself is a comic book story where you play as Spider-Man, exploring multiple levels and fighting bosses. Inspired by the Ultimate Spider-Man series of comics, the graphic style is sort of a merge of that and the original Spider-Man. You have over 20 fighting combos and moves. Controls are the standard thumb stick on the left, context aware action buttons on the right. Pretty standard for Gameloft games.

Take a look at the video from the iOS version for a good idea of the game and the gameplay. It obviously doesn’t show the 3D.

The 3D effect on the HTC Evo 3D was pretty spectacular, while less pronounced than 3D images or movies on the device. The 3D effect is reserved, but very well done and less distracting than what the 3DS offers. You really see the 3D when Spider-Man throws a criminal directly at the screen. Very nice.

We can expect Spider-Man 3D to ship either on the 3D devices or around the time they are released. Gameloft has not been specific on the matter, but this is one to keep an eye out for.
