The announcement of a HD remake of Tony Hawk: Pro Skater was made, to complete amazement, with the complete absence of the Bird-man himself, yet it turned out that he wasn’t actually absent from the awards as he strolled out onto stage to announce….a Spider-Man game? What!?
Strange decisions from Activision aside, as a Spider-Man fanatic I find it hard not to get excited at the prospect of the Web-slinger finally getting a game to rival the mighty Arkham franchise. But you might want to push your own excitement aside as the new game, titled The Amazing Spider-Man, is going to be based upon the upcoming reboot (or is that re-reboot?) of the films, and it’s going to feature robots! Why is it always robots? Anyway, enjoy the trailer.
