Who cares if you can pet the dog? Turns out the question we should have been asking all along is 'Can you backpack the cat?', and Spider-Man: Miles Morales answers with an emphatic yes!
Today's revelation comes via a new Spider-Man: Miles Morales gameplay trailer shared by Game Informer, which demos Miles' acquisition of the aforementioned cat-backpack.
More specifically, it's a backpack designed to accommodate Spider-Cat - the mask-wearing, crime-fighting (and in Insomniac Games' rendition, extremely adorable) feline who, the internet tells me, served as the alternative Spidey of Earth-999 in the comics.
And if the mere presence of a furry companion in Spider-Man: Miles Morales still somehow isn't enough to make the whole thing worthwhile, Spider-Cat also offers support during battle, launching out of his backpack to take a vicious swipe at villains.
You can see Spider-Cat in action in the video above, and can, of course, see even more Spider-Cat when Spider-Man: Miles Morales comes to PS4 and PS5 this November.
