Peter Parker looks like a store-brand Tom Holland in Spider-Man Remastered on PS5

Sony has revealed that Spider-Man Remastered will have one major change from the original: the character model for Peter Parker looks completely different. He now closely resembles Tom Holland, who currently portrays movie Spider-Man.

Insomniac Games says that the change is because the new face model, Ben Jordan, is a “better match” for Peter Parker/Spider-Man voice actor Yuri Lowenthal’s facial capture. But given the huge popularity of Holland’s portrayal of the spidey superhero, the change sure does seem like a suspicious coincidence.

I’d also just like to state for no particular reason that Sony, which owns Insomniac Games, also owns the film rights to Spider-Man.

If your memory of the PS4 version of the game is a bit fuzzy, this tweet shows just how drastically the character models in each game differ:

Lowenthal himself has weighed in on why there’s a change, if you were curious:

 

And Wednesday afternoon, Bryan Intihar, Creative Director at Insomniac, shared a little more about the decision to change Peter Parker’s look:

Sony’s blog post also revealed that Spider-Man Remastered will have a “performance mode” that will let you play the game in 60fps. You can see it in action in this trailer, and I think it looks pretty impressive:

The blog also says the game will have “near-instant loading” (though you’ll be able to turn on the charming fast-travel animations of Spider-Man taking the subway if you want to), 3D audio on certain headphones, and support for the DualSense’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, though Insomniac didn’t say exactly how.

Spider-Man Remastered is included with the $69.99 Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, and will launch on November 12th alongside the PS5. Spider-Man Remastered will only be available on PS5, though, and only as part of the Ultimate Edition bundle — you can’t buy it standalone. And if you’ve already played through Spider-Man on PS4, your saves won’t transfer to the remastered version.
