With big movie must also come movie tie-in game.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Game is coming this Spring (likely riiiiight around the release of the movie on the first Saturday in May), and Activision and Beenox are teaming up once more for a game based on the property, being developed for pretty much everything: PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, WiiU, and 3DS.

The first trailer, released this morning by Activision, features Spidey swinging, slinging, and kicking his way to glory, as expected, but the narrator is more of a surprise: Kraven the Hunter. Long one of Spider-Mans deadliest foes, Kraven is obsessed with the hunt, and thinks of Spider-Man as his greatest possible trophy in the Marvel Comics the characters come from. Here, according to the narration, he'll be Spider-Man's ally, training him how to hunt and track down a "deadly killer he let roam free" who may or may not be Electro, one of the several villains from the film of the same name. If we were betting men, we'd be willing to bet that Kraven will have a late Act 2 change of heart making him a major baddie for the final Act of the game, but for now, take an early look at what it's like to have the Hunter on your good side.
