Insomniac's Spider-Man is a dedicated and thrilling reimagining of an icon

And no one knows that better than the developers of the upcoming Spider-Man video game, who have been entrusted not to screw up Marvel's most sacred superhero icon. Sphero says Spider-Man neither sends information over the web nor stores data in the app. It's a tabletop companion that responds to your voice, tells stories, virtually joins you on missions, and can watch over your room. But unlike those two, Sphero's Spider-Man toy focuses more on interacting with kids through actually speaking to them.

It's worth noting that while Spider-Man's launch is timed to just a few weeks before the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7, he isn't supposed to represent the movie version of the character, and he's not voiced by Homecoming actor Tom Holland.

Another big addition to Spider-Man's arsenal of acrobatic talents?

Sony released an extensive gameplay demo at the end of Sony's E3 2017 press conference, and in it, a veteran Spider-Man battles with Mister Negative and his gang of Demons.

"Starring one of the world's most iconic Super Heroes, Spider-Man features the acrobatic abilities, improvisation and web-slinging that the wall-crawler is famous for, while also introducing elements never-before-seen in a Spider-Man game".

Thanks to a pair of LCD displays, Spider-Man's expressive eyes match those in the comic books. When not fighting bad guys, hang out and strike up some banter with your friendly neighborhood hero. You can also ask him what his favorite color is or what he's up to, and his responses will be playful just like the on-screen Spider-Man.

The interactive device looks different from anything else Sphero has created, in that it's stationary and made of a rubber material - all the company's other toys are designed to move. If that logo isn't glowing, the toy's microphone isn't active, providing further reassurance to parents that Sphero isn't secretly trying to harvest demographic info about their kids.

If you weren't already hyped about the first Spidey game for four years, you really should be.
