The Amazing Spider-Man coming to Wii U next spring

The Amazing Spider-Man, Marvel and Beenox's latest entry into the web-slinging franchise, will come to the Wii U next spring with all of the title's DLC and special Gamepad functionality, Marvel announced during its NYCC 2012 panel.

The game will feature the expansions that have been released for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game so far, including the Rhino Challenge Pack, the Oscorp Search and Destroy Pack, the Lizard Rampage Pack, and the delightful Stan Lee Adventure Pack.

The title will feature optional motion controls, and will also let the player use the Gamepad's touchscreen to navigate the interface of the Osphone, Amazing Spider-Man's in-game menu which lets the player chart a path through the city using GPS, among other functions.

Check out our review of the versions of The Amazing Spider-Man that came out earlier this year to get a better idea of what to expect from its Wii U installment.
