The Amazing Spider-Man Heading to Vita Later This year

Posted on October 11, 2013 AT 07:52am

Sony has announced that Activison’s The Amazing Spider-Man is heading to PlayStation Vita later this year.

The game features all of the content included in the 2012 console release. The only difference is that the control scheme has been altered to better fit the handheld. The Web Rush system, which slows down time, has been changed to allow users to activate it by tapping the Vita’s screen.

Peter Parker’s smartphone now has “pinch-and-zoom support” via the touchscreen, which “makes navigation a breeze, allowing you to effortlessly drag around the mini-map, set waypoints and track your bearings.” Finally Vita’s gyroscopic functionality allows players to take front page photos by aiming the handheld like an actual camera, zooming in and out by touching the screen.
