E3: NY is open in The Amazing Spider-Man

Between this new trailer (that shows Spidey swinging through a gloriously open NYC) and the rebooted film franchise set to open this July, arachnid fans have a lot to be very happy about.

I'm a huge comic book fan myself, and this hits the spot perfectly. I've been looking forward to another free-swinging Spider-Man game ever since the last few seemed to miss the mark a bit, and this looks like it's going to do the job.

Developer Beenox has already proven that they know what they're doing with the character (they crafted both Shattered Dimensions and Edge of Time) and it looks like The Amazing Spider-Man is going to be a winner.

The game is set right after the events of the new movie and features a New York City that's totally open to both exploration and thug-busting. Look for the wall crawler at retail on June 26th for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, and 3DS.
