The third of four universes to be experienced in the upcoming Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions video game has been revealed.
Spider-Man 2099, alter-ego Miguel O’Hara, and the Marvel 2099 universe will be featured in the game. Marvel 2099 was started in 1992 to explore one possible future of the Marvel Universe. The futuristic world and its friendly neighborhood web-slinger can be seen in the newest Shattered Dimensions trailer.
Check out the trailer after the jump:
A 2099 version of the Hobgoblin is seen as an enemy in this dimension. Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions will also feature Kraven The Hunter and four versions of Hammerhead & Green Goblin among other enemies.
The trailer leaves us wondering what universe and what Spider-Man will be featured next. So far, the mainstream, Noir, and 2099 Spider-Man universes have been confirmed. Spider-Man has a long and extensive history and there is a wealth of stories and universes to be inspired by. The next dimension could be something from past comic book storylines or a completely new universe created for the game specifically. As shown in the trailer, each of the worlds are truly distinct. It’s assumed that the fourth dimension will be just as unique.
As far back as April, we caught a glimpse of the Cosmic Spider-Man, though, now it’s looking more like that particular costume will be a GameStop pre-order bonus. But, within the screen-grab, we can see the 4th dimension costume which looks a bit… symbiotic.
My wild guess would be the Marvel 1602 world. 1602 Spider-Man would provide a very unique dynamic, where the Marvel universe was mixed with the Elizabethan Era of England by writer Neil Gaiman and artist Andy Kubert. The 1602 setting would be another opportunity for gamers to experience an alternate version of Spider-Man and his antagonists. The character has many alternate versions but there are a select few that originate from dimensions strikingly different from the mainstream. Marvel Zombies’ universe and Zombie Spiderman could be featured but that world may be too much for young audiences, considering how violent the universe is.
What do you think the fourth dimension will be? Which version of Spider-Man will show up in that dimension?
