Activision’s The Amazing Spider-Man is the latest port that will swing its way onto Nintendo’s Wii U console. The release date is now confirmed to be March 5, 2013, which is just around the corner.
Officially called The Amazing Spider-Man Ultimate Edition, the Wii U version of last year’s game based on the film of the same name starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone will include all four previously released DLC packs for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 version. In addition, the Wii U version will support off-screen play on the GamePad as well as turn the GamePad into the Oscorp Osphone to access Spider-Man’s in-game phone.
To refresh your memory, here are the contents of each DLC pack inclusive with The Amazing Spider-Man Ultimate Edition:
- Stan Lee Adventure Pack – Completely voiced by the Spider-Man creator himself, you’ll play as Stan Lee and web-sling through NYC in an amazing race across the city. Take on Spidey’s powers as you wall crawl, web rush, and swing across Manhattan to collect the missing pages of Stan “The Man’s” latest script. Collect all the pages and unlock a surprise reward!
- Lizard Rampage Pack – Take control of Dr. Connors’ terrifying alter-ego in a race against time as you rampage through the streets as Lizard to defeat Oscorp guards.
- Rhino Challenge – Rampage through NYC as the unstoppable Rhino and cause as much destruction as possible before the timer runs out! The more damage you inflict, the more bonus points you earn as you build momentum ramming through taxis and cars!
- Oscorp Search and Destroy Pack – Includes 2 mini-games through Spider-Man’s in-game cell phone.
New suits, including the Vigilante suit from The Amazing Spider-Man movie and the Classic Spider-Man suit from the Raimi trilogy.
