Here’s some great news for gamers with Windows Phone devices since Gameloft has just announced that the Amazing Spider-Man 2 official game is headed to your phone “in April”. It will join a similar version for iOS and Android, finally giving some respite to Windows Phone user who get games later than their other counterparts.
There’s no word if this will be an Xbox LIVE game though our hunch is ‘no’ as Gameloft has been foregoing certification lately (see Asphalt 8, Total Conquest and Minion Rush). Indeed, if Gameloft wants to get this game out in the same week as iOS and Android, it will probably need the freedom offered by it not being an Xbox LIVE title, much to the disappointment of many.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie hits theaters in on May 2nd, giving this game a few weeks breather before its release and the film it’s based off of. From the presser:
“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-favorite hero back onto smartphones with The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” says Karine Kaiser, VP Marketing & Licensing at Gameloft. “Players will enjoy a deep open-world adventure and iconic web-spinning action that makes Spider-Man so extraordinary.”
Gameloft already had another Spiderman title, dubbed simply The Amazing Spider-Man with Xbox LIVE certification. That game was released in early 2013 while it is quite pricey. Gamers seem to be happy with it though, as it maintains 4.5 stars out of 5 from over 700 reviews. Here’s hoping that Gameloft can strike gold again with the game’s sequel.
