Miles Morales really is on top of the world, isn’t he? The character was already doing really well in the comic books but thanks to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Marvel’s Spider-Man, Miles has become something of a household name. This is why fans were more than excited to see Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales announced, which seems to be a spin-off to the first game and will likely lead the way towards an eventual sequel.
Turns out Phil Lord, one of the producers for Into the Spider-Verse, managed to get a good look at the standalone game before it was announced during the big PS5 event. Without spoiling anything, Lord said that this game was something special and that’s enough for a lot of us to get excited. Lord and his frequent collaborator Christopher Miller did a fantastic job with Miles in their movie so here’s hoping Insomniac can invoke some of that spirit.
We got a chance last year to check out what the insomniacs are up to and... it’s special. They’re special. https://t.co/l1shCVZ1KQ— Phil Lord is wearing a mask on his determined face (@philiplord) June 12, 2020
It’s good seeing the love Miles is getting from game developers and fans alike since the story of Marvel’s Spider-Man was always leasing to this, among other things. Green Goblin and Venom are clearly two things that will get addressed when a proper sequel comes out, which I’m hoping is called Spider-Men and has both Peter and Miles playable, so we’ll have to wait a bit more for that reveal.
Say what you will about Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales but it looks like a pretty solid game, even if it doesn’t change anything too much. This is basically more Marvel’s Spider-Man but with Miles instead and that’s more than okay.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be coming to the PS5 this holiday season.
