Spider-Man has been getting a lot of different suits in recent years. And today we’ve learned that another one is to be added to the Spider-Man: Miles Morales game. However, this one is a little special – as you can see for yourself in the video above. That’s because this particular piece of lycra has an animated appearance, primarily because it’s based on the Into the Spider-Verse series. And comes complete with on-screen comic themed reactions. You know the ones I’m talking about – POW! BANG! MUMMY!
Ok, maybe I added that last one; at least, you hope I added that last one!
Reaction so far has been very positive indeed. And Insomniac Games have earned themselves a lot of praise today for how well they have translated one style of Spideyness into the other. The physics of it all works very well, too. Yes, it does stand out a little against the more realistic backdrop that is the world of Spider-Man: Miles Morales. But haven’t you heard of fusion?
In all seriousness, the suit looks great. Better than great, in fact. Super. And the added effects when you’re in combat only add to the mood. It reminds me a little of the old arcade games, which felt as though every strike needed an accompanying exclamation. Or more recently of Yakuza with its visual overlays whenever a battle is in progress. But not in a copycat cat sort of way because Spider-Man: Miles Morales manages to both own it and style it out in its own special way.
This is definitely the game to own Day One – especially if you’re lucky enough to have a PlayStation 5 inbound. Enjoy.
