After single-handedly revitalising the superhero game with a cracking PS2, Xbox and GameCube version this summer, Spider-Man 2 is ready to spray his web fluids all over Nintendo's DS.[br]Activision have announced that that the game will be a launch title for the DS, putting it on US shelves from November 21 and making it the first game to be confirmed as available at the system's release.[br][br]No firm gameplay details or screens at the moment, but Kathy Vrabeck, president of Activision publishing, did say "the nature of the dual-screen technology allows us to deliver more interactive and intuitive gameplay experiences on the hand-held than ever before". [br][br]We reckon this clever PR speak means you'll be able to chuck webs by touching the screen and stuff. You can't fool us, Kathy. And while it's pretty unlikely that the DS could handle the sprawling representations of New York seen in the console versions, the N-Gage version of Spider-Man 2 did some nifty all-singing, web-slinging 3D levels alongside scrolling 2D sections.[br][br]We'll bring you more on DS Spider-Man 2 as soon as it scuttles out from under the floorboards.
