The new Spider-Man game is set to introduce a crime fighting cat that even has an adorable Spidey mask.
New gameplay footage has been unveiled for the upcoming Spider-Man: Miles Morales and it shows the most adorable and epic character inclusion ever.
In one of the missions, Spidey has to bring a cat - which, in news that will please fans of the multi-dimensional Spider-Verse, is named Spider-Cat - back to its owner. But the main character gets to take the tabby on missions and it resides in a little backpack.
One of the best features about Spider-Cat is that it will pop out of the bag, dressed in a slick costume, to help you with finishing moves on enemies.
People are already calling it Game of the Year purely for Spider-Cat.
One person wrote: "Just when I thought Spider-Man Miles Morales couldn't get any better, they reveal a Spider-Cat sidekick that helps out with takedowns."
Another added: "Miles has a Cat in the new Spider-Man game! Spider-Cat must be protected at all costs."
A third said: "Oh look it's the GOTY Spider-Cat is all that matters anymore."
We're just waiting for this cat and the feline from Captain Marvel named Goose to team up for a spin-off series. Who wouldn't want to watch two superhero-related, crime fighting cats take on the baddies of the world?
Spider-Man: Miles Morales is set to launch on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on 12 November.
Gamers might be wondering whether to go for the current-generation version or make a next-gen leap of faith with the webslinger.
While there are certainly benefits to both options, the PlayStation 5 version comes with some particularly tempting bells and whistles that are getting harder and harder to say no to.
An in-depth report from GameInformer, players will be able to choose between Performance Mode (dynamic 4K/60fps) or Fidelity Mode (4K/30fps/other improved visual features).
Miles Morales will also features zero loading screens, even when fast traveling.
Who knows why you'd ever want to fast travel when you can spin webs and soar through the skies of Manhattan, but it's good to know that booting up the game or heading into buildings to take on combat challenges won't be met with a lengthy loading screen.
