Spidey 2 Catches DS in Web

Activision, Inc. today announced their first title for the Nintendo DS Spider-Man 2.

Like its console counterparts, the game will be based on the hit movie sequel from summer 2004. Activision has confirmed that the Vicarious Visions-developed title will be ready for Nintendo’s DS launch on November 21.

Kathy Vrabeck, president of Activision Publishing, commented, “We are excited about the Nintendo DS and are working closely with Nintendo to bring the Spider-Man 2 video game to this innovative new platform.” She continued, “The nature of the dual-screen technology allows us to deliver more interactive and intuitive gameplay experiences on the hand-held than ever before.”

However, it’s not yet clear how Activision plans to take advantage of the dual-screen and other DS functions to improve on the Spidey formula.
