Insomniac is on a roll. After creating one of the best Spider-Man games to date and following it up with an amazing sequel, they have just announced their latest projects, Marvel’s Wolverine and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
The game is directed by Brian Horton (creative director) and Cameron Christian (game director). Christian recently directed Spider-Man: Miles Morales, so it will be interesting to see what he has in store for Wolverine.
Insomniac has apparently been itching to tell stories about Wolverine through their games, according to the PlayStation Blog:
Back when we were working on Marvel’s Spider-Man, there would be times where all of us—Insomniac, Sony Interactive Entertainment, and Marvel—would brainstorm together about the future beyond the web-slinger. And even in those early discussions, Wolverine continually came up as the character we’d be really stoked to work on together.
Judging from the trailer alone, it looks like Marvel’s Wolverine is adopting a fittingly darker tone than that of Insomniac’s Spider-Man games, still that does not mean the game will be free of any levity. Wolverine is a character with lots of darkness, but a ton of heart and a well-developed sense of humor, if it is a little grim. The camera lingers on the bodies strewn about The Princess Bar as it dollies behind Wolverine. Logan’s knuckles are specked with blood and there is already a feeling of grit being conveyed. This is exactly what a cinematic trailer should do, set the tone of the piece without giving too much away too early, and I am already stoked to see what comes next.
