High Voltage Software, makers of the Conduit games, are working on the 3DS version of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. That’s according to a page on Nintendo’s website, which lists the studio as the game’s developer.

This is a bit of a change compared to how Spider-Man entries on the 3DS have been handled in the past. Previously, Beenox created Spider-Man: Edge of Time and the first Amazing Spider-Man for Nintendo’s portable. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be the first 3DS title not developed by Beenox.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

New screenshots and details for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have come in through a Game Informer GDC 2014 preview. You can find all of the content below, and GI’s full piece here.

– Webbing is now tied to the left/right triggers
– Ex: hold down left and you’ll swing forward before gaining altitude and listing to the left
– Alternate between left/right web shots to move forward in a controlled/speedy pace
– GDC demo begins as Peter Parks enters a private fund-raising event
– He runs into Harry Osborn here, and the two talk
– Players can choose between different dialog options
– The conversation soon turns to Richard Fisk, and how Osborn thinks Fisk is into illegal activities
– Waiter walks by with drinks, but Peter knocks the tray over before Osborn can take on, as he used his spider sense to see that it had poison
– Peter slinks off and puts on his spider suit
– He follows the waiter backstage and runs into Russian mobsters
– Crew includes a bruiser
– Need to immobilize him with a charge attack before he can be damaged
– Spider-Man can pull off web and physical-based moves
– One of these has Spidey positioning himself between two opponents, webbing them both in the face, leaping in the air and pulling the line taut
– This causes them to bonk their heads together
– Stealth-based sequence follows next
– Stealth sequences are less linear than in previous games
– Choose your own path while removing each guard from play
– The goons are guarding an experimental suit, which just so happens to be sized perfectly for Spider-Man
– New speedy enemy archetype catches up with Spider-Man when he thinks he’s going to get away clean
– She’s quite quick, and her blades are sharp
– Will need to effectively dodge roll and use web pulls to succeed
– Some view Spider-Man as a hero, while others view him as a threat
– New hero system
– Missions will pop up on the minimap as players progress through the campaign
– Missions can be ignored, but at a cost
– Ex: Spider-Man can save unconscious victims in a building on fire by using his spider senses to navigate through the smoke
– His bravery will be recognized through a special segment on the Bugle Channel with anchor Whitney Chang
– Fail at a bomb-disposal mission, and J. Jonah Jameson will take to the airwaves, wondering why Spidey didn’t call the police instead of trying to figure it out himself
– Citizens will treat Spider-Man differently as players gain more acclaim/notoriety
– Civilians will clap when they see the heroic Spider-Man
– They’ll run at one that’s seen as a public menace
– Oscorp will send out drones to attack Spider-Man
– Spider-Man will face penalties to damage and other stats
