Miles Morales’ existence in the upcoming Spider-Man game was revealed last month at E3, and Insomniac Games continues to drip-feed the fans in respect to the role he will play and whether he will interact with Peter Parker and/or Spider-Man.
We were treated to nine minutes of gameplay at E3, if you haven’t seen it already you can check it out here. Our first glimpse of Miles came in the form of a bystander filming Spider-Man’s web antics on his phone as he swings through the skyline. The character is still largely shrouded in mist but the latest hints have given us some definitive answers, Insomniac Games tweeted out: “Miles Morales lives in New York City, has a role in the story, and also helps show another side of Peter Parker. #SpiderManPS4″
At E3 Insomniac Games’ creative director Bryan Intihar also talked about what he thought Miles brought to the game:
“Miles is very important to us,” said Intihar, “Over the course of this project, I’ve really grown to love this character.” Intihar was especially tight-lipped about the black-clad Spider-Man, but hinted at the young hero’s role in the game: “This is definitely a Peter Parker story. [Miles] opens up the door, not only to expose people to a character they may not know, but at the same time show a side of Peter that people haven’t really seen before.”
