and Marvel Entertainment
have unveiled a new video and three screenshots
for The Amazing Spider-Man 2
video game, developed by Beenox
, the same game studio behind 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man
. In this sequel players once again assume the role of the iconic Super Hero in a unique side-story inspired by the feature film but set in its own continuity. Throughout his journey, Spider-Man will encounter a number of new foes as well as some old friends, as he confronts a new threat to his beloved city. The narrative will give Peter Parker, Spider-Man's nerdy photojournalist persona, a greater role in the spotlight, as he investigates the complicated motivations and unique personalities behind the menagerie of Marvel menaces threatening Manhattan.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is planned to launch next spring, alongside the Sony Pictures Entertainment feature film of the same name.
