The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game will feature Kraven the Hunter.
A new trailer has been released that includes the famous villain. He appears to be speaking to Spider-Man in the clip about his hunting skills.
Kraven's appearance in the game does not mean he will be a part of the upcoming film. Most Spider-Man games based off of the movies feature villains that did not make it to the big screen.
The famed hunter of the web-slinger also known as Sergei Kravenoff appeared in various Spider-Man comics and animated adaptations of the canon. Kraven's Last Hunt, a series released in the late 80s marked one of the villain's most powerful storylines where he finally catches Spider-Man and wears his costume trying to emulate the role. This arc ends with Kraven killing himself, but its impact has made him one of the more memorable villains in Spidey's Rogue Gallery.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be released for every console around the time of the corresponding film's launch which is set for May 2. The trailer shows off some of the actual gameplay with Spider-Man bashing bad guys and tracking down some of his more dangerous enemies. Electro even makes an appearance during the video.
The game is developed by Activision and Beenox and will be available for the PS3, PS4, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, PC, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/ Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Jamie Fox as Electro, and Paul Giamatti as the Rhino. An appearance from the Green Goblin could also happen as Harry and Norman Osborne both show up in one of the film's trailers.
The first Amazing Spider-Man was released in 2012 and rebooted the hero's story retelling his origin with a brand new cast.
