Gameloft has finally revealed the release date for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' game for Android, iOS and Windows Phone users. The mobile game will arrive on 17 April, and will be accessible via its respective app stores.
Last month, Gameloft and Marvel released the teaser trailer for the mobile game, which showcased some of the gameplay and villains such as Electro and Green Goblin, two arch-rivals of Spider-Man. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also includes some of the other iconic villains from the Marvel universe.
The new Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game for small screen devices will tie-in with the game's movie version, which is scheduled to hit theatres in May 2014. In the game, one can roam around a more detailed Manhattan city, and can take advantage of the open-world gameplay, which will let gamers explore more and fight thugs around the city, all separately from the main storyline. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game trailer also boasted of enhanced graphics.
Gameloft already has some popular franchises like Asphalt, Modern Combat and Real Football under its portfolio. "After the tremendous success of the first The Amazing Spider-Man mobile game, we're excited to be working with Marvel again to bring the fan-favourite hero back onto smartphones with The Amazing Spider-Man 2," confirmed Karine Kaiser, VP Marketing and Licensing at Gameloft to Comicbook.com
Gameloft, last month, partnered with Idea Cellular to offer gaming content to more than 130 million subscribers of the country's third largest telecom operator. The tie-up will enable Idea subscribers to avail games and other content from the Gameloft Game Store and also through Idea's mobile portal
