The newest trailer for Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man has been released.
The final marketing push for the upcoming PlayStation exclusive has begun with a new trailer titled, “Relationships” being released on YouTube that highlights the characters that will be featured in the game and their relationship with Spider-Man, which does come with quite a few easter eggs that a lot of Spider-Fans will enjoy seeing.
Check out the latest trailer below:
The trailer opens up with a voice-over from J. Jonah Jameson’s “Just The Facts” radio show, which he describes as a way to discuss the problems that Spider-Man has caused in New York with his callers, one of whom is Peter Parker himself. During the call Peter disguises himself as Ben Reilly, a clone of Parker who later would become the Scarlet Spider during the Clone Saga event in the 1990’s. Reilly’s Scarlet Spider suit is one of the suits that will be available for wear in the game.
While J.J.J. argues that New York has become more dangerous with Spider-Man than it already was before, “Ben” disputes this. Jonah states that a few copy-cats have started to run rampant around the city to destroy public property which is a nod not only to Spider-Man, but to the numerous rogues that will be featured in the game.
Jonah references Electro, Vulture and the Rhino in the category of “nut jobs” who he sees as a threat to the city. According to Jonah, Wilson Fisk/Kingpin still maintained order in the city despite being heavily criticized for his methods. Ben also points out that Spider-Man has seemingly been collaborating with the NYPD to keep people safe. He cites a Daily Bugle report that Spidey and NYPD police captain Yuri Watanabe are on good terms.
Jonah then issues a warning that anyone who gets near the wall-crawling menace is in danger for their lives because it’s impossible for him to keep both worlds colliding. At this point we get a look at Aunt May, Miles Morales, Mary Jane and Martin Li. Jonah insists to “Ben” that Spider-Man should just let the police and Sable International do their jobs. Sable International is the team that mercenary Silver Sable is apart of.
“Ben” fires back on the claims about Silver Sable and her band of mercenaries being “good guys.” Jonah retorts by asking him if Spider-Man is a good guy. Jonah tells him that the city needs fine citizens, not costumed freaks like Spider-Man running around. We get a glimpse at Peter and Mary Jane in Norman Osborn’s campaign for the upcoming mayor election. Jonah ends the talk there with “Ben.”
Spider-Man releases on September 7th, 2018.
