The Japanese arm of Sony Interactive Entertainment really knows how to make good trailers and commercials. That’s why it’s not surprising that the one they made for Marvel’s Spider-Man by Insomniac Games is no exception, and merges action, music, and gutsy Japanese narration in a way that feels just right
While it’s pretty brief (after all it’s a TV commercial, and those either last 15 or 30 seconds), it’s definitely intense. Yet, this time we don’t get local PlayStation Face Takayuki Yamada, and I kind of miss him. Maybe we’ll see him in dressed like Spider-Man closer to launch.
You can check out the trailer below. If you want to learn more about the game, you should read my hands-on preview and my impressions on the awesome swinging mechanics. We also have comments from Creative Director Bryan Intihar on the possibility of a sequel, Mary Jane, and the Avengers.
You can also watch the western “launch” trailer, another focusing on the open world, take a look at our video showing the Marvel’s Spider-Man “hype train” that is currently running in Manhattan, and at some recently-revealed images featuring the villains.
The game launches on September 7th exclusively for PS4. You can already pre-order it on Amazon.
