Just like the original Spider-Man, Miles Morales will have plenty of costumes to try out and wear in his own solo game on PS5. Miles Morales: Spider-Man has already shown off the regular costume that the young hero will wear, the TRACK suit designed by artist Javiar Garron, and the Crimson Cowl suit which gives Miles a fashionable hoodie.

Insomniac Games revealed yet another superhero suit for Miles, which will be instantly familiar to anyone who saw the hero's big-screen debut in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Not just a faithful reproduction of that costume, donning this outfit will actually replicate the look and feel of that film, emulating the 12 FPS animation style that Miles was rendered in for most of that film. Fortunately, for those with accessibility concerns, this animation style can be disabled, as the effect is a suit mod you can deactivate, according to Insomniac's James Stevenson.

Insomniac also tweeted that the Spider-Verse costume can be unlocked in the game by anyone and won't be a preorder exclusive. Preordering Miles Morales simply gets you quicker access to the suit.

"The way that Insomniac brought the iconic suit designed for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse into the game is visually stunning and remarkable," Justin K. Thompson, production designer Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse explained. "We were able to advise on some of the unique design elements that made the film so distinct, like how we often animated the characters on twos and we made recommendations for how best to integrate the pop-up words and little burst cards on screen, into the action sequences."

Spider-Man: Miles Morales launches on November 12 for PS4 and PS5. Save game progress will carry over if you migrate from Sony's current-gen console over to its next-gen hardware, but you'll need to start all over again in Marvel's Spider-Man if you pick up the Miles Morales ultimate edition with Spider-Man: Remastered.
