Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered (opens in new tab)has already given us some unexpected, funny mods. I thought that sooner or later that would end when people got tired and moved on. I thought wrong. You can now be Raphael, Leonardo, Michelangelo or Donatello in Marvel’s Spider-Man.
That’s right, kids: you can fight crime in New York as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Heroes in a half shell. Turtle power.
In a way, as you can see in the video above or on YouTube (opens in new tab), it’s a real testament to how the animation work the developers of Insomniac have done fits the agile fighting style of a comic book character like the Turtles or Spider-Man. The tuck-roll jumps, jumps and slides, twisting stairs and leg-lock grabs match the Turtle models so well that the only thing that feels really out of place is all the web shooting.
However, I have to say that this really highlights how wacky the Turtles’ feet are. They are huge. Like giant floppy two-toed, pizza-slice floppy-happy flippers on the ends of their legs. They bend at the strangest angles. I say flippers on purpose man how can they even walk with those feet.
You can find the TMNT mod for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered on Nexusmods. (opens in new tab) To use it you also need to download the invaluable SMPC Modding Tool. (opens in new tab)
