After the successful release of its award-winning Atari classics, Miss Pac-Man and SpongeBob-themed TV Games, JAKKS Pacific Inc. has announced the availability of its Spider-Man plug-and-play game unit. The hand-held device contains multiple original video games based on the Marvel property.
Featuring a joystick designed to resemble the webslinger, the game unit plugs directly into the A/V jacks of any standard television set and allows consumers to play the games without the need of a separate console.
A total of five games challenge players to battle Green Goblin, Venom, The Vulture and other sinister enemies from Marvels Rogues Gallery. Featured titles are: Streets of the City, Spider Training, Venom’s Vindication, Vulture’s Venture and Escape From the Sewers.
Spider-Man TV Games retails for approximately $20, and is now available at retailers nationwide. Based on sales of previous TV Games titles, it should be one of the big sellers of the Holiday season. More information on JAKKS’ TV Games can be found at www.jakkstvgames.com.
