Sony and Insomniac have surprised us all with a new Spider-Man game just two short years after the original‘s release. Get ready to swing through the Big Apple as Miles Morales this time around. That’s right, Miles is the protagonist in his own Spider-Man spin-off game, Spider-Man: Miles Morales. This younger Spider-Man has gained quite the following over the years after the Sony Animated movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
A theme of individuality plays throughout this reveal trailer, with the focus on Miles’ uniqueness as his own Spider-Man. We can see Miles using his electro-shock abilities, something the original webhead Peter Parker could not do without gadgets. Another one of Miles’ unique abilities is to camouflage, effectively rendering him invisible. The trailer then ties it all up with the tagline, “Be Greater. Be Yourself.”
One can hope they do not rehash the same plot as Into the Spider-Verse, about finding one’s place in the world as their own Spider-Man, but that they do something as unique as Insomniac’s original Spider-Man. Although, It should be interesting to see how this will tie into the inevitable next chapter to Peter Parker’s story no matter what.
