Insomniac shares Daily Bugle post showing Peter Parker as mentor to Miles Morales

By Heidi Nicholas,
Insomniac Games has shared a new post from the perspective of the Daily Bugle Now, the major publication in Marvel's New York, discussing Peter Parker's mentorship of a new Spider-Man.

Although we don't know much of what Peter will be up to during Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales — beyond that the devs "still have much of Peter's story left to tell" — we do know that he figures as a mentor to Miles. Insomniac is building on this with the idea that the in-game population of New York would have picked up on that too. Robbie Robertson of the infamous Daily Bugle Now says (helpfully shared by Insomniac) that "the Spider-Man we've seen for nearly a decade has suddenly multiplied to two."

Senior animator James Ham had previously said that Miles isn't quite as confident as Peter at first, and is a bit more "flaily" when web-slinging around the city, and Insomniac's post emphasises this, saying "the new Wall-Crawler's webs were messy, his one-liners were cheesy and his swinging wasn't that graceful." Since then, however, he's been spotted training "all across town with his mentor." We get a brief look at Peter and Miles zooming through the city, and a glimpse of what looks like a new suit for Miles. As fans were quick to notice, the suit looks like it has been inspired by Miles Morales of the Into the Spider-Verse movie.

As those fans pointed out, perhaps this Spider-Verse suit is one of the two pre-order bonus suits available along with the T.R.A.C.K. Suit, three extra skill points and the Gravity Well gadget. If so, don't worry: you'll still be able to get both suits even if you haven't pre-ordered the game, as Insomniac has confirmed the content is all unlockable in-game.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales launches for PS5 on either November 12th or November 19th depending on region.
