High Voltage Software is developing Amazing Spider Man 2 for 3DS

by: Sean Colleli -

Well this is interesting. High Voltage Software, of The Conduit fame, is making The Amazing Spider Man 2 for the 3DS. HVS has a long history of doing licensed software and the Conduit series was one of their few original IPs, so it looks like they've gone back to what they know. There isn't much info on the 3DS port of the new Spider Man game yet, although we know for sure that it won't be an open-world sandbox game like the other versions. This is a little disappointing but understandable considering the weaker hardware of the 3DS, although I still would've liked to see HVS try a sandbox game on the portable. They definitely have the technical chops to pull it off.

I was always a little bummed that we never got a third entry in the Conduit series. They weren't the best games and they didn't sell all that well but I really enjoyed the corny, direct-to-dvd scifi feel they had. I wanted a third game just for the you've-got-to-be-kidding-me ending of the second one. Maybe if this new Spider Man game does well, we'll see HVS revisit a few of their older IPs.
