Trivia

  • In the Mega-CD and Mega Drive games, there are alternate endings depending on if the player is able to rescue Mary Jane in time and or defeat the Kingpin.
  • Although this is the first official Spider-Man videogame for Sega Consoles, this is not the first time he appeared in a Sega game. That honor goes to The Revenge of Shinobi released in 1990. Spider-Man appears as the first part of a two-phase boss battle in Stage 6, Chinatown. After he takes enough damage, Spider-Man leaves the fight and is replaced by Devilman from the manga of the same name. In the original Japanese version of the game as well as the version featured in the Sega Smash Pack, this boss battle pitted the player against a shapeshifting ninja named "Metamorpher", originally appearing in a form similar to Spider-Man before morphing into a form that resembles Batman. When Sega obtained the rights to Spider-Man for The Amazing Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin, the boss was altered to be Spider-Man and Devilman in all future releases, starting with the American release.
