Dear Odin, it’s me, Blair. Are you listening?
This…this is the type of quote I don’t want to hear because if you read the headline, and know how much I love all things Spider-Man-Woman-Ham-Ultimate-2099 whatever, I would want this to be more than a desire, but a reality. Yusuke Hashimoto, the director of the Wii U exclusive Bayonetta 2, the sequel to one of the single greatest action games ever created, made this statement via Twitter:
“If I had to work with an existing IP, I’d want to make a game in the Spider-Verse…Especially a Spider-Gwen game.”
So yeah, Odin, freaking Mephisto, whoever I have to pay tribute to make this a reality, I’ll do it. Platinum Games does have a relationship with Activision, the company that has published every single console and handheld Spider-Man game since the turn of the millennium, having made last year’s The Legend of Korra. After the poor showing of last year’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Platinum could be just the right people to steer the franchise back into the glory it had in the early-to-mid 2000’s, but then, they also made The Legend of Korra
, but in the words of Spider-Man himself, “everybody gets one”.
