The Amazing Spider-Man: Ultimate Edition Revealed By Amazon

Swinging into the Wii U launch window

Marvel revealed earlier this year at the New York Comic Con that The Amazing Spider-Man - a game that's been on other consoles for a while now - would be making the move to Wii U in Spring 2013.

Online retailer Amazon has now listed the game as available for pre-order and gives it a release date of 5th March, 2013.

According to Amazon, the game is now known as The Amazing Spider-Man: Ultimate Edition and has a whole host of new features that weren't available in the first editions.

The main difference in the Ultimate Edition is of course the introduction of the Wii U's GamePad, which allows everyone's favourite neighbourhood web-slinger to navigate the cities map, use his in-game cellphone, accept challenges and have access to all of his upgrades at the touch of the screen. All of the DLC that has been released for the other versions will also be featured, including the Stan Lee Adventure Pack, Lizard Rampage Pack, Rhino Challenge, and Oscorp Search and Destroy Pack.

This reveal is by no means an official confirmation and we have no news on any release dates outside of the United States just yet. We'll keep you posted as soon as we hear it.
