Open-world web-slinging swing 'em up The Amazing Spider-Man is wall-crawling into stores on June 26, publisher Activision has announced, and I've run out of Spider-words. A new trailer has... skittered? out too, showing off developer Beenox's take on classic Spidey villain The Rhino.

Rhino's not actually in the summer movie which the game's based upon, but Beenox has reinvented him as a human-rhino hybrid whipped up by the naughty men at Oscorp.

"In the spirit of the film, the game is taking a new look at Spidey's origins, including his nemeses," producer Stephane Gravel explained. "Building upon our main storyline, his creation is based on a genetic experiment, which also ties to the overall story arc of the game."

The movie tie-in will land on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo DS and 3DS.

      im hoping, along with great gameplay and lenghty villian story arcs, is a highly detailed new york city. the last few open word spidey games were set in a dull, flat and under populated nyc. i want a beautifully rich new york to explore.

        I don't mind not having a sandbox if the gameplay is tight. Most of the Spider-Man games, including the open world ones, haven't had this.

      Looks alright, but the tiny snippets of gameplay and animations you catch in the trailer, again doesn't look very fluid at all. Me needs more Rocksteady.
