It’s been a long time since a Spider-Man video game was released in Japan. I believe the last one actually localized for Japan was Spider-Man 3. Square Enix will end the webbing drought by publishing The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in Japan, but Beenox’s game will only be released for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
It’s kind of fitting that Square Enix is picking up Spider-Man since Taito, now a subsidiary of Square Enix, published Spider-Man 2 many moons ago.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will come out on September 4 with English voiceovers and Japanese subtitles.
