Spider-Man’s fellow Marvel heroes Captain America and Thor have games stewing over at Sega to go with their upcoming movies for 2011. Now, Peter Parker has a post-“Ultimate Alliance 2” solo project of his own to look forward to, and it’s called “Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.”
The name appeared on the May cover for GamePro, so details may be locked up in the information vault until that hits stands, but just what direction Activision and/or Marvel decide to take the new game in will be interesting to watch, particularly if Spidey’s treatment offers any clues about how Marc Webb’s film franchise reboot will look.
No one knows exactly what flavor the fourth Spider-Man film will have but Webb likes former “Marvel Universe Online” collaborator Brian Michael Bendis’ “Ultimate Spider-Man” series, so betting individuals anticipate a younger, hipper take on the character. That may or may not carry over to “Shattered Dimensions,” especially if its development preceded director Sam Raimi’s exit from “Spider-Man 4.”
I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that there will be an “Ultimate”-ish tone to this game, but that’s just my gut talking. Who knows? Maybe the title means we’ll get a multi-dimensional Spider-Man team-up game featuring Spider-Man 2099 and the Scarlet Spider.
