Miles Morales is the second Spider-Man to take up the mantle, and fans of the character will be happy to know the character will have a bigger role in Spider-Man PS4 than initially expected.
Spider-Man PS4’s game director, Bryan Intihar, revealed in an interview with GamesTM magazine (via WCCFTech) that Morales’ role in the game was expanded thanks to the development team reading more about the character.
Intihar said: “Miles didn’t start out with as big of a role as he has now. But as we started doing more research on the character, I went back and just started reading more and more and more. I’ll be honest, I just fell in love with the character. Just like MJ can provide a different perspective on the world, I thought Miles and his relationship to Peter brings something different.”
Intihar said that they hope to make a Spider-Man universe much like in the comics and movies. The video games have done this before, but none of them featured the Miles Morales character before. The game itself is released early next year exclusively for the PS4.
