In Super Mario Bros. Wonder, badges are a significant addition, granting Mario and friends new abilities. These can be unlocked and equipped from the world map, with some, like the Floating High Jump Badge, changing character movements. The Dolphin Kick Badge is handy for swimming, making it easier to cover more distance quickly in the water.
According to Insomniac Games, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will explore different locations within New York City besides outer Manhattan, such as Queens. Both Peter Parker and Miles Morales are playable as Spider-Man, with a different set of abilities: Peter Parker now has the Venom suit that gives him abilities that greatly improve his combat prowess and ability to defeat multiple goons at once, while Miles Morales has his unique abilities such as Camouflage invisibility and his venom blast. Also, the bar-based Focus system returns from the first game, meaning Miles’ Bio Electric from his spin-off game is integrated into the L1-based Power Gauge system alongside Peter’s own Power Gauge system.
