Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales deleted scenes released online

Deleted scenes from Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales appeared on the net and revealed how the story was originally a little different. In 2020, Insomniac Games released its second Spider-Man game in the form of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The game allowed players to step into the shoes of the titular character after gaining Spider-Man’s powers in the previous game. The game was a huge hit thanks to the fact that it was one of the launch titles for PlayStation 5 and was a sequel to one of the most acclaimed games on PlayStation 4. Although the game has been out for some time, Insomniac has also just been released another patch Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales which makes some performance changes to the game.

With all that said, the game had to make some notable changes before it became a critical hit. Some deleted scenes from Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales has appeared on the net and shows how different the first 90 minutes of the game were almost. The three scenes show unseen moments with Ganke, Phin and Miles’ mother, Rio. The most significant scene is a moment between Rio, Phin and Miles, where Phin tells Rio that the Morales family should move out of Harlem because of Roxxon’s rising power and the secrets they hold. These deleted scenes were actually released online in August 2021 as part of a GDC speech by Insomniac Games’ Brian Horton, but have been rediscovered thanks to a recent tweet from Miles Morales actor Nadji Jeter. Horton revealed in his presentation that the scenes were clipped and the story was adjusted a bit to help with tempo issues, as Insomniac believed that these scenes created tonal problems and also revealed Phin’s motivations to become the antagonist a little too soon.

In the end, it looks like these were the right choices for the game. It’s rare to see behind the scenes at games like this, especially those featuring deleted scenes, but it’s a wonderful educational tool to help people understand the work at stake. Right now, Insomniac Games is working on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 which is expected to be released in 2023.
