Activision unveils the new game at E3 and Marvel displays exclusive screenshots, video, plus a description of the game.

Spider-man: Friend or Foe?At long last, the secrets of the newest Spider-man game have been revealed and Marvel.com has the scoop. The title seems to be the theme of the game, where Spidey will gain new allies as he defeats his villains. Characters include Sandman, Venom, Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, "New" Goblin, and even heroes Iron Fist and Blade! More heroic allies will be revealed prior to the game's release.

The style of the game seems to be a hybrid of the comic book style from "Ultimate Spider-man" and the realism of the Spider-man movie game franchise, with characters that take design cues from both. Excerpts from the Marvel.com article follow:

This fall, Spider-Man takes a crash course in teamwork with the latest Spider-Man video game, Spider-Man: Friend or Foe. Hitting Xbox 360, PS2, Wii, DS, PSP and PC, Friend or Foe adds a fresh twist to Spider-Man's gaming exploits by giving the Web-Head a sidekick--and his choice of partners may surprise you.

Culled from the supervillains featured in the Spider-Man film trilogy, the list includes Green Goblin, Venom, Doctor Octopus and Sandman. But these bastions of evil won't just roll over and fight for good. As Spider-Man, you'll have to beat some sense into the creeps and show 'em the light before they join the side of the angels.

Look for every character--from Spidey to Venom to Iron Fist--to have their own uniques moves, attributes and powers, ensuring all your team-up combinations have their own flair. You'll also be able to switch characters as needed to overcome all challenges. And if you're good enough, tough enough and dedicated enough, you'll gain control of Spidey's black costume, opening up a host of new powers and abilities
