At this point, there are a whole host of reasons to be excited about Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Building upon an already amazing game in the form of Marvel’s Spider-Man (which we gave an 8.8), Miles Morales introduces a great new protagonist, a bunch of new abilities and some impressive increases in fidelity and performance.
Still need some convincing? No worries, I’ve got just the nugget of news that will have you jumping on the hype train. As part of GameInformer’s coverage of Miles Morales, it was announced that during the course of the game you will be tasked with rescuing a shopkeeper’s cat, affectionately named Spider-Man.
So far so cute, but it gets so much better once Miles swings in for the save. Once reunited with his owner, this ginger purr machine can chill out with you in a backpack as you web-sling around New York. I know, that’a brilliant, but the best part is that Spider-Cat will don his own tiny Spidey mask and assist you with finishers by swiping at the face of the thugs.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales releases on PS4 and PS5 on November 12, 2020.
How much do you love Spider-Cat? What other furry friends would you like Spidey to have? Let us know.
