The Amazing Spider-Man VGA trailer

Beenox and Activision are coming back in 2012 with another Spider-man game. The newest iteration of your neighborhood superhero, The Amazing Spider-Man is a sort of tie-in to the upcoming movie of the same name from Sony. 

Beenox has a hit-or-miss track record with Spidey. Shattered Dimensions was well-received and probably one of the best Spider-man games out there. Their follow up in Edge of Time hasn’t done as well. So, it’s kind of up in the air whether or not the new one will be any good.

Either way, Beenox has stated that the new The Amazing Spider-Man will take place soon after the new movie’s plot. It appears that they’ve also changed up the art style of the new game, going for a more “realistic” approach. 

An official release date hasn’t been set but Activision is shooting for a summer 2012 release. We haven’t seen any information about what consoles the game will be on but the previous iterations were on everything from the 3DS and Wii to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, it is more than likely that this new game will be released on multiple platforms.
