Gameloft seems to be cashing in on movie tie-up games for the mobile platform faster than the console counterpart.
Gameloft has announced an iOS and Android game based on the upcoming superhero movie, the Amazing Spider-Man. The company has released a trailer of the game that showcases the basic premise of the Spider-Man universe, “With great power comes great responsibility.”
The trailer summarizes the story of Spider-Man – average nerdy kid in school gets bitten by a genetically modified (or radioactive) spider, gains super hero powers, uses them for his own good till his uncle Ben is taken from him and then decides to devote his life to crime fighting and saving the world.
The trailer shows a nice shell shaded comic book style narration and we hope this translates into the narrative of the game as well. The trailer also shows off some gameplay where we can see spidey swinging through the city and taking down bad guys. How the story of the game ties into the movie is yet to be seen.
The iOS and Android game will be available on June 28 2012 a day before the movie hits theaters in India. There is no information available about the price of the game.
Gameloft has taken to making mobile games based on movies quite a bit. In the recent past, we have seen a game based on MIB3, a game based on the Dark Knight Rises and Ice Age.
There is also a console Amazing Spider-Man game in the works and will be available for the Xbox 360 and the PS3 when the movie releases.
