Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 promotion reportedly begins in Australia

This is the most damning piece of evidence that Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is still on track to come out later this year.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is one of the most anticipated video games of the year. However, many fans have feared its release date would be pushed back given the lack of updates on the title since Sony unveiled its trailer at that year’s PlayStation Showcase. Last year, the developer reassured fans that the title was still on track with an update from one of the game's voice actors saying the same thing but these didn't seem to do much for public trust.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is the direct sequel to the 2018 title Marvel's Spider-Man.

However, there is an update that will put the minds of fans at ease. On Sunday, an eagle-eyed Reddit user spotted a trailer for the highly anticipated title on Australia’s ESPN2 live channel. The Reddit user, Clarkey7163, also recorded an HD version of the commercial, which they then uploaded to Streamable for interested fans to view. If nothing else, the advert indicates that Sony is confident that the title is ready for release and, as a result, has launched its marketing efforts on it.

The advert was in the form of a fake news broadcast that showed Peter Parker and Miles Morales apprehending some criminals in New York City. After successfully disarming the criminals, the pair of Spideys leave them strung up in webs for the cops to find and arrest. What’s more? The ESPN2 advert used a mixture of live-action and CGI footage to bring the game to life and whet fans’ appetite.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will feature Peter Parker and Miles Morales teaming up to fight crime in New York City. However, more than petty crime, the game’s 2021 trailer revealed the two characters will take on Venom in what promises to be an exciting adventure. What’s more? There are reports the game will also see another villain from the comics Kraven The Hunter.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will see Peter Parker and Miles Morales team up to take on enemies.

While it has been confirmed that both Spider-Man characters will be playable, it is currently uncertain how that will happen. One possibility is that players will alternate between both characters in certain sections of the game. On the other hand, the game can give players the power to choose which character is present in which section.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is the next title in the widely successful Marvel’s Spider-Man franchise. Developed by Insomniac Games, in conjunction with Marvel Games and PlayStation, it is the direct sequel to 2018’s Marvel Spider-Man game, which has sold over 33 million copies as of May 2022.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is slated for release on the PlayStation 5 console in 2023. While there is no definitive date at the moment, the ESPN2 advert of the game specified a Spring 2023 date, which, in Australia, falls between September and November. The game’s release date had earlier been announced as Fall 2023. which just so happens to coincide with Spring in the southern hemisphere that Australia is a part of.

In other news, Ravensburger’s Marvel-themed board game, Marvel Villainous, has a new expansion that will introduce three new villains. Titled Marvel Villainous: Twisted Ambitions, it will be available for pre-order from February 3 onwards.
