It’s Comic-Con! And we love us some Comic-Con. While it might have strayed a little from its pure comic book origins, Comic-Con today is a celebration of all things geekdom. Meaning plenty of video game announcements to boot.
As such the final dimension in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimension was announced: The Ultimate Universe. With Spidey wearing the symbiote suit, for some reason. The trailer revealing Ultimate Spidey also revealed some more villains like Carnage and Deadpool (He’s everywhere these days, isn’t he?) for the Ultimate Universe, Vulture in Noir and THE JUGGERNAUT, BITCH! in Amazing.
While I understand the inclusion of the Ultimate Universe in the game, I think it’s a bit lazy. Ultimate Spider-Man is basically Amazing Spider-Man, only a teenager. The Symbiote Saga didn’t last very long in the Ultimate Universe, so I don’t really see why Ultimate Spidey’s wearing the symbiote suit. From what I understand Ultimate Spidey will be more melee focused, while Amazing Spidey dishes out damage using web attacks. Spider-Man 2099 is all about aerial combos while Spider-Man Noir uses stealth. I can’t wait to play this.
