Bayonetta 2’s director would like to make a Spider-Gwen game

2 min read

Spider-gwen (1)

Sandy has finally gotten his hands on a Wii U console. And of course, has had listened to my sage words of wisdom, grabbing himself games such as The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Bayonetta 2. And as usual, I’ve been completely right as our plucky Porra has been raving about one of the greatest action games ever made. I love Bayonetta 2 so much, that I’d love to see the formula applied to other games. But a Bayonetta-style game set in the Spider-Verse? My brain might just explode.

Wait, what’s a Spider-Verse and who is Spider-Gwen, you ask? Well then! Allow me to strap you to a chair so that you can’t escape and I’ll tell you! You see, there’s more than one Spider-Man out there, besides ol’ Peter Parker of the Marvel 616 continuity. There’s a Spider-Chimp. There’s the Spider-Man of India, a more covert and ruthless Spider-Man who works as an assassin, Spider-Man Noir and many, many others. But more importantly, there’s also Spider-Gwen. Or Gwen Stacy to be exact, Peter Parker’s first love and eventual Green Goblin victim.

She comes from a reality where that pesky radioactive spider bit her instead of Parker, granting her the various spider-powers. Peter of course, went completely nuts without any superhero release valve to help him vent his bullied aggression, and eventually scienced himself into a new version of the Lizard that battled Spider-Gwen. And died.

Anyway, the Spider-Gwen character has been warmly received so far, and she’s got her own ongoing comic book series. What she doesn’t have however, is her own video game. And Bayonetta 2 director Yusuke Hashimoto expressed interest in making a Spider-Verse game that would star Spider-Gwen:

It’s most likely general musing at this point on the part of Hashimoto, but I like to imagine that it’d be a match made in heaven. The proper polish of Platinum, combined with a great cast of highly-kinetic characters with unique spider-powers. Hell, I’d buy that kind of game twice.

  1. Strike the iron while it’s hot. Wont be long before she has her own TV Series or movie even if her comics keeps selling the way it does.
