Marvel’s Wolverine Is A ‘Full Size’ Game With A ‘Mature Tone’

One of PlayStation Showcase’s most memorable moments was undoubtedly the announcement of Marvel’s Wolverine game exclusive to PS5.

But in amidst the excitement some fans had wondered if the game would be fully-fledged or more akin to the Spider-Man standalone adventure ‘Miles Morales’ that released at the launch of PS5.

Thankfully, Insomniac Games’ Creative Director Brian Horton has taken to Twitter today to allay fears and promise that the game will be ‘full size’ and have a ‘mature tone’.

Good to hear. SpiderMan is great - and I want more - but I could definitely go a little darker with Wolverine and I think it's befitting of the character.

Honestly just follow X men origins wolverines template.

outsider1624742d ago

Honestly i would love a logan template.

PhillyDillyDee742d ago

I believe they are talking about the game, not the movie.

Raven's X-Men Origins Wolverine's Uncaged Edition was a pretty violent and fitting adaptation of the character.
IGN stated, "awesome guilty pleasure".

Yui_Suzumiya742d ago

Hell yes.. The only superhero game I enjoyed. If this is anything like it then I'm all on board.

GhostofHorizon742d ago

It's just the right way to represent Wolverine. I'm glad they will stay true to the character.

Rimeskeem742d ago

Does that mean we are getting Logan 2017, Logan in X-Men or something in between?

porkChop742d ago

Hopefully closer to Logan. That was much more fitting for the character.

Profchaos742d ago (Edited 742d ago )

Exactly what I want from a game about wolverine. Thanks you for not making it PG insomniac.

Side note but I'd love for insomniac to tackle punisher one day to tie in Spider-Man to a expanded style universe.

Marvel's Wolverine Should Treat Deadpool Like One Classic Yakuza Character

Deadpool could play a vital role in the upcoming Marvel's Wolverine title by taking up the legacy of an entertaining Yakuza character.

I hope not. Keep it dark and grim. Just seeing Deadpool in that thumbnail makes it look like Fortnite.

I think we can live without Deadpool. If he shows up he either steals the show or isn't present enough. He's too popular for being a main character now that he doesn't work as well as a side character in a heavily story driven game like Insomniac Marvel games. I also don't think any of us want to deal with the onslaught of "Why Insomniac MUST make a Deadpool game next" articles.

I am guessing he isn’t in the game.

They are going for a more mature darker tone from the trailer shown.

Deadpool doesn’t fit that at all.

I think I saw the first movie once but I’d rather they keep Deadpool in his own games

SimpleSlave80d ago (Edited 80d ago )

Absolutely. This is not about maturity but about writing and presentation. Yakuza is quite literally a story about the Japanese Mafia and it takes itself EXTREMELY seriously in that aspect. Then it flips it around and goes all silly goose on us. You know actual real life is.

The whole "tHiS iS mAtUrE" argument shows how plenty of people here have a lot of growing up to do. Too much Edge Lording and not enough Perspective, Nuance and Reality.

But then again, this will be a game about a guy that has healing factor, is like 200 years old, has indestructible metal over his bones and grows claws our of his hands. And he also hangs out with actual demi-gods and literal gods that are able to alter reality itself. So I guess I stand corrected. Deadpool might actually not work at all.

Oh, well. Maybe next time.

Looking forward to it. Just ordered X-men Origins Wolverine to scratch some of that itch in the meantime.

Underrated gem that game is
