You may have been preoccupied with Peter Parker’s new symbiote suit, but it turns out both Miles Morales and Black Cat are wearing brand new costumes in Spider-Man 2.
The biggest game showcased at last night’s PlayStation Showcase was Spider-Man 2, the return of the Queens, the addition of a wingsuit and, of course, Peter Parker in a symbiote suit. That symbiote suit predictably stole the show, but it wasn’t the only new costume on display in the video.
As a result, both Miles Morales and Black Cat have new outfits and can be seen at different points in the gameplay demo. Let’s start with Miles. Because his new outfit is one you’ll see a lot of. Like the new variant of Peter’s Advanced Suit, Miles is very similar to what we saw in the last game, only with some design changes.
The biggest difference is that Miles’ new suit has red that runs all the way down his arms instead of stopping at the top of his shoulder blades. This red is now down to his knuckles, making his hands almost look like MMA fighting gloves. It also seems to remove some of the random black gradient along the arms and stick to just one darker shade across the entire outfit.
The changes to Miles’ suit are so subtle that it’s been difficult to gauge how Spider-Man fans will feel about Miles’ new suit. However, one of the initial reactions from Twitter user _VYGRR isn’t exactly positive., calling it “one of the biggest downgrades ever” for the randomly drawn red and new gloves. It might be a bit of an overreaction for essentially the same suit, but the armor is a bit more combat armor compared to last game.
Then there’s Black Cat, who appears for about two seconds in gameplay footage via a headshot that appears on a map of New York that Kraven is viewing on his tablet. These two seconds were clearly enough for Twitter users and clear Black Cat die-hard fan silverxsable. You can see that Felicia Hardy has a new outfit this time around.
It’s hard to tell just by looking at her face, but instead of the black and silver look she had in the original game, she appears to be wearing a black and white outfit this time around. We’ve only seen the top half, but this time the whites and blacks stand out a bit more.
