Sony’s newly-polished PlayStation 5 version of Spider-Man has actually cut a line of discussion that apparently referenced Square Enix’s Avengers video game.
Spider-Man Remastered isn’t yet publicly available, however Kinda Funny speaker Greg Miller published a clip showing the change on Twitter last night.
In it, you can see Spidey snapping an image of New York’s Avengers Tower. He then mentions: “Avengers Tower, so cool! Too bad they’re never around to use it.”
But in the original PlayStation 4 version of the video game, the line then continues: “They’re on the west coast or something. Most likely surfing.”
Square Enix’s Avengers game includes the Marvel team on the west coast, in San Francisco, with its opening level set on the city’s iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
Interesting.Spider-Man 2018 originally referenced the Avengers being on the West Coast in this scene.This year, the Avengers game saw the
group based in San Francisco.Spider-Man Remastered on #PS 5 no longer makes the West Coast reference

Referencing Square Enix’s video game might recommend to gamers that it is the Insomniac universe Spider-Man who signs up with Square Enix’s Avengers team, for example. We’ve asked PlayStation why the line was changed for this brand-new variation of Spider-Man.
