Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions will be developed by Beenox Studios, include two new villains, and take place in a universe that hasn't been in a Spider-Man video game before.

At WonderCon in San Francisco next week, Activision will reveal information about Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions at a panel, according to the convention's website.

The game, which hasn't been officially confirmed for Wii or DS, will be developed by Beenox Studios, who worked on Guitar Hero: Smash Hits and the Wii version of Quantum of Solace. The universe in the game will be new to the world of video games, and there will be two new villains that will be unveiled at the panel.

Marvel comic book writer Dan Slott will be penning the story, and Christopher Daniel Barnes, the voice of Spider-Man in the mid-1990s cartoon show, will voice the main character. The two will be appearing at the panel along with Beenox's Creative Director Thomas Wilson, and Activision Senior Producer Meghan Morgan.

See below for the full panel details.

I hope it has the line "How do I shot web?" in it some where.  Day 1 purchase if so.

KDR_11kMarch 25, 2010

Shattered Dimensions? Does it change the size of the game world after psychoanalyzing you?

TJ SpykeMarch 25, 2010

The Fox Spider-Man cartoon is the best media version of him and that was the best version of the character, so I am glad they are using his voice in the game.

ZoltanMarch 25, 2010

Something about them using the voice of the guy from the animated series reminds me of what they did with Batman Arkem Asylum, but I still don't think it'll be as good.

It seems with all these new Spider-man games the developers feel like they have to add something new that strays from what make the character who he is.  Don't add advanced hand-to-hand Combat in a Spider-man game, he fights with his webs god damn-it!!!  The same thing happened with the Tony Hawk games, they kept making the tricks more and more complicated that it was no longer accessible to those who weren't die hard skate fans like the originals were.

GKMarch 25, 2010

Aw come on...can't they just make a new Spider-Man 2099 game already?

Maybe that's what this is?

Beenox = Blech

I agree, time for 2099 games and movies.

BlackNMild2k1March 30, 2010

Have you guys seen this game yet?
It's confirmed for Wii and DS by the way and so far it looks pretty bad ass.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6TJ-pt4aTU

There are 4 dimensions and 2 have been revealed so far.
Amazing Spiderman Dimension(cell shaded) that we already know (vs Kraven)
and a Noir dimension* that looks like Spidermans "Arkham Asylum".

I'm just hoping that the cell shading that they are using is as good as what I've seen of Red Steel 2 (my copy shipped yesterday) when they reveal the Wii version.

There also appears to be some 1st Person Gameplay according to the trailer.

ArbokMarch 30, 2010

Different versions? That's interesting... wonder what the chances are of the other two being Spectacular and the previously mentioned 2099?

I assume ape and Spider-ham are a bit too goofy for this, but those are some other possible dimensions. I hope it's not Zombie, as I never cared for that line.

Man-Spider would be cool. Same for six-armed Spidey (my personal favorite).

GKMarch 31, 2010

Well if each is from a different Marvel universe there's a number of candidates. Aside from 2099, I can think of 2 others that aren't even Peter Parker. Who knows, maybe they'll throw a curve ball & put Spider-Girl in there too.

Come to think of it....why hasn't there been a Spider-Ham video game? Something like that needs to be a Wii exclusive & filled with comical parodies other Spider-Man games & the movies.

BlackNMild2k1May 15, 2010

GT has a new video. I didn't get it to play on this laptop (wouldn't stop loading and wouldn't let me push play) so I don't know if anything new is revealed or not.

GKMay 15, 2010

I didn't feel like watching the whole thing but from what I saw, they didn't announce any new versions of Spider-Man. Only major thing for me was that the voice actor from the 90's cartoon will do the voice of Noir Spider-Man & the other 3 will also be done by former Spider-Man voice actors.

Nice, and Spider-man 2099 is looking good. Wonder if the Vulture will be the notable bad guy from that dimension.

GKJune 03, 2010

Coincidentally Marvel has re-released the first 10 Spider-Man 2099 comics in a graphic novel collection. Might be worth checking out though I'm gonna hold off. I'm behind on enough comics as it is...

The hint for the last Spiderman looks like he's a monster or something. Could it be a symbiote Spiderman? Venom or Carnage Spiderman?
http://i50.tinypic.com/15ozg9l.jpg

TJ SpykeJune 08, 2010

Spider-Ma with the Venom symbiont is basically just Spider-Man in a black suit. He actually looks different in the Carnage symbiont.

BeautifulShyJune 08, 2010

TJ Spike while you are mostly right there are a few differences between Spiderman and Black suit Spiderman. Black Suit was a lot stronger than normal Spiderman. Black Suit Spidey could produce its own webbing and would at times act on its own to protect its host.

By the sound that the creature at the end sounded like I am guessing that it will be a symbiote dimention. It sounded like Venom.

TJ SpykeJune 08, 2010

I meant in terms of how he looks.

ArbokJune 08, 2010

Going from the comics, is there such a thing as an existing dimension that would allow for a "symbiote one"?

So far all of the dimensions have been from comics (616 Streamline, Noir, 2099). The only dimension I can think of for this one is Zombie, but I hope its not that one and the mouth does look more like Carnage than Zombie Spider-man.

It could be something based on the short lived Spider-Carnage, but that wasn't its own dimension:

http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/1/15317/495344-spider_carnage_1__super.jpg

BlackNMild2k1June 08, 2010

The eyes actually look just like Venom.

ArbokJune 08, 2010

The eyes look like Venom or Carnage, as both have the same design. The odd thing is that the light in the background shows through the mouth... is there a hole going through there? If so, could point toward it being the zombie one although the eye design doesn't match.

I put more faith in it being a symbiote. Doing some research, there is a dimension where Spider-man has merged with Carnage and appeared in Exiles and is designated as Earth 15 in terms of dimension. They also came across a Demon Spider-man in a dimension as well. Problem is that those are super obscure. Casual comic fans know of Noir and 2099... but the others I mentioned are one issue things.

The only dimension popular enough that is left is zombie that could fit with the clue, but I really hope its not and the symbiote thing is true even if it would deviate from the others revealed.

GKJune 09, 2010

I'm hoping that it was just was a shot of Carnage himself & neither a Spider-Carnage or Zombie Spidey. Wouldn't consider either a hero anyway seeing as both eat people...

There's still Spider-Girl or the new Spider-Man that appears in her comic briefly. Only other ones I can think of that people would have actually heard of are Ultimate, the Unlimited cartoon, or Spider-Ham. There's the tokusatsu show in the 70's where he had a giant robot or manga but...naaah...

Exactly why I don't want it to be the Zombie one.

And good point. If its just a shot of Carnage, it could just be the Ultimate Universe. It would explain why you can see the light from the background in the mouth of Carnage, and plus it glowed yellow already. However, that will be a pretty boring choice compared to the drastically different 2099 and Noir... but the most likely considering they are starting a cartoon based on the Ultimate Spider-man line.

ThePermJune 09, 2010

Id always wanted to see a Marvel Version of Batman and a DC version of Spiderman for shits and giggles.

Kytim89June 09, 2010

Here are some of the Spider-Men that I want to see for the game:

Scarlet-Spider
Armored Spider-Man
Six-armed Spider-man
Octo-Spider
Spider-Carnage
Spider-Zombie

GKJune 09, 2010

Now I am a fan of Scarlet Spider. Would be cool to see him in there as an alley of some sort. Highly doubt he's the 4th one though as he's from Amazing's universe & well, he's dead in the comics. Left a son(Darkdevil) in the MC2 universe though.

Voice Actors all confirmed.

Quote:

Activision has announced that actor Neil Patrick Harris will be reprising his role of Spidey as he voices Amazing Spider-Man in the upcoming Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. The actor joins Josh Keaton,Christopher Daniel Barnes, and Dan Gilvezan, actors who will be voicing the other versions of the wallcrawler--Ultimate, Noir, and 2099.

Superfans might recognize those names, but here's the deal for everyone else. Harris played Spider-Man in 2003's Spider-Man: The New Animated Series; Keaton voiced the character in 2008's The Spectacular Spider-Man; Barnes took on the role in 1994's animated Spider-Man; and Gilvezan was Spidey in 1981's Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends. In addition to those actors, Marvel legend (and Spider-Man creator) Stan Lee will be providing the voice of the game's narrator.

It's pretty cool that Activision has gathered together all these actors, no matter how relatively obscure some of them might be. I wonder if 2099 Spidey will almost have his secret lair (and secret identity) blown by Aunt May when she dusts his trophy collection. Probably not.

I didn't realize NPH had ever done Spider-Man until I just looked at IMDb and saw he did Spider-Man's voice in the horrible MTV Spider-Man show. I wish they had gone with Christoper Barnes (voice of Spider-Man in the Fox series) though.

I won't lie. I really want this game. I had my initial doubts with the developer, but everything since then has been really interesting and cool. This is probably one of my most anticipated non-Nintendo-made games coming this fall.
