Cosmic Spidey Joins Shattered Dimensions

Posted by Luke Brown On April - 1 - 2010


Yesterday, Activision announced Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. It didn’t take long after that for Gamestop to announce their pre-order incentive: Captain Universe alternate costumes. Hooray?


As you can see, each of the four dimensions players will travel to as Spider-Man will have its own unique take on the Captain Universe costume. If you couldn’t tell, from left to right, we have our universe’s Spider-Man (Amazing), the Noir universe’s Spider-Man, a yet-to-be-officially-revealed-but-is-probably-zombie-universe Spider-Man, and the 2099 universe’s Spider-Man. What’s that? Did this picture actually just blow the surprise of getting to play as Miguel O’Hara, the Spider-Man of the year 2099? Judging by the way the costume is laid out, I’d say yes. It’s the extra-long vambraces on his arms that give it all away. The zombie costume actually looks nothing like the Spider-Man from that particular alternate Earth, but changing the white to black may indicate death. I really don’t think the fourth dimension is going to be the Ultimate version of Spidey. It just wouldn’t make sense since the two Earths are so similar.


Of course, the above pictures are the only proof of Gamestop’s pre-order incentive since the images were taken down from the company’s online store almost immediately. I’m all for this bonus though. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a Spider-Man video game that took advantage of all the ridiculous costumes and alternate versions the character has had in his history (like that time he had to wear a brown paper bag over his head). Perhaps we’ll also get to see Spider-Armor. Or maybe even Iron Spider. Oh, maybe they’ll even put a House of M Spidey in there. I’m a bit disappointed one of the dimensions isn’t the alternate future where Peter Parker’s daughter grows up to be Spider-Girl, but perhaps Activision thought not enough people would know who that was. Unlike Spider-Man 2099.
