Peter Parker is not the only person that you can play as in the new Spider-Man video game coming out next year on PS4. His girlfriend Mary Jane is also playable in some parts.
This news was confirmed by Insomniac’s communications manager James Stevenson during an interview with Finder. You can read his comments on the topic down below.
“You’ll also have moments where you’ll play as Mary Jane, a reporter at The Daily Bugle. She’ll have moments where she’s working with Spider-Man because she’s got a nose for news, she knows the city, and she’s just an all-around talented reporter. It’s a cool wrinkle. Putting another playable character in the game is a big ask for the team. But it’s something that we felt really passionate about”
Mary Jane is different in Spider-Man PS4 compared to how she is portrayed in the comics. In the comics, she was a supermodel. Here in this game, she’s more like Superman’s Lois Lane being a reporter.
