Once upon a time, back in the halcyon days of the early-2000s, every new blockbuster movie got its own (usually awful) tie-in video game. Those days are long gone. For instance, the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming has nothing slated for PC or consoles, despite being one of the biggest movies of the year. There is a Spider-Man game coming for PS4, but it has nothing to do with the Tom Holland film.
But wait! It turns out there is a Spider-Man: Homecoming game coming! It’s just exclusive to arcades. Y’know, those places where you pay a buck to play games with PS2-era graphics for 90 seconds? Don’t act like this isn’t ringing a bell.
Here’s what arcade chain Dave & Buster’s has to say about their exclusive Spider-Man: Homecoming game:
“In anticipation of the worldwide release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Dave & Buster’s introduces a brand new Spider-Man arcade game created exclusively for the concept. Developed by Adrenaline Amusements, the new game is a custom arcade conversion of Spider-Man Unlimited, created by Gameloft SE under license from Marvel, and utilizes assets specific to Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Only available at Dave & Buster’s, the game lets players swing through the streets of New York, and if successful, battle the evil super-villain, the Vulture. Dave & Buster’s will be offering guests the opportunity to play three games free, including the new Spider-Man: Homecoming – and others like World’s Largest Pac-Man and Space Invaders Frenzy – with each $10 Power Card purchase or reload!”
The Spider-Man Unlimited mobile game is actually pretty fun, so if you really want to play it with some Tom Holland voice clips, then hustle your butt down to Dave & Buster’s. Apparently, the game is now at every one of their over 100 locations.
Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7.
