Thanks to Gameinformer, we now have a ton of new information on the Miles Morales, pertaining to new suits, abilities and even story tidbits. All of that is great to learn of course, but something even more important, has just been announced.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will include a cat companion in one of its plethora of interchangeable suits.
That alone, is reason to celebrate but come to find out, the inclusion of the cat goes beyond just a simple aesthetic change. The cat will also feed a bit into gameplay as Spider-Cat, will actually help Miles with those flashy finishing moves throughout the duration of the game.
Needless to say this addition goes beyond anything I expected for suits. Many games implement a feature where the main character can, for instance, pick up or pet a cat, that much isn’t new. Insomniac took this concept a bit further and said, what if the cat fights alongside you?
With this reveal, I can’t imagine why I’d ever switch suits again.
