Gameloft and Marvel Announce Spider-Man Unlimited, the First 3D Web-Runner for Smartphones & Tablets
Los Angeles, June 6th, 2014 – Gameloft, a leading global publisher of digital and social games, has teamed up with Marvel to announce the development of a new smartphone and tablet title, Spider-Man: Unlimited, the very first web-runner inspired by more than 50 years of Spider-Man comics.
“Gameloft is once again honored to be working with the timeless super-hero universes created by Marvel” says Karine Kaiser, VP Marketing & Licensing at Gameloft. “With Spider-Man Unlimited, players can expect a faithful recreation of the Spider-Man comics through an incredible narrative runner experience.”
Fans will enjoy the thrill of swinging, running and fighting through a chaotic New York on the brink of destruction, as The Formidable Sinister Six attempt to gain unlimited power by opening a malevolent dimensional rift to our world. It’s up to Peter Parker and iconic Spider-Man variations such as Iron Spider-Man, Spider-Man Noir, Future Foundation Spider-Man and Ben Reilly Spider-Man to team up and stop them. Fans will be inspired to collect and upgrade more than 23 different Spider-Men, the most variations in any game, as they battle through an episodic adventure, featuring three narrative-driven issues facing Green Goblin, Vulture, Electro and their dimensional counterparts along the way.
“Gameloft has done a great job of creating a true to character Spider-Man experience for mobile gamers,” says Javon Frazier, VP of Games Marketing, Marvel. “Fans of all ages will enjoy the endless action of running, swinging and fighting through villains across New York City.”
Spider-Man Unlimited is scheduled to release on iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch®, AndroidTM and Windows Phone early September 2014.
The game is currently playable at this year’s E3 at the Gameloft booth 5522, in the West Hall from June 10 to 12 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
