One of the undeniably good things about Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies was Bruce Campbell’s odd but hilarious cameos as a ring announcer, a snooty usher, and a maitre d’. If you enjoyed (or just like) Campbell, then you’ll be pleased to know that he’s making a more protracted appearance in Beenox Studios’ The Amazing Spider-Man game.
For Campbell’s latest dive into the Spidey universe, he’s taking on the role of “Extreme Reporter,” a villain of a sort, who makes up challenges for Spider-Man to complete. Most of them seem to be physical challenges and things that you’ve seen before in games, like checkpoint races, reaching various points in the city, and using Spider-Man’s various powers in specific tasks. The Reporter will be sure to feature a number of over-the-top Bruce Campbell lines and catch phrases.
The Amazing Spider-Man launches next Tuesday, June 26, for Nintendo Wii, 3DS, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
