The terrifying boat NPCs found in Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 have received a cheeky easter egg in Spider-Man Remastered on PS5.

If you didn’t spot them on your first playthrough, you can see the haunting, half-rendered monsters in their original form via our video from 2018. These beasts of obvious burden return in Spider-Man Remastered on PS5, but Insomniac has slipped in a nod to their meme-worthy potential in-game.

Beyond the lighting improvements making the top of their hedronic heads look even more gruesome, one of the NPCs now totes a sticky note on his chest which says “Did you miss us? <3″

We’ve gone looking for Boat NPCs in Spider-Man: Miles Morales too, but sadly we haven’t been able to find a boat close enought to shore to check out its passengers.

Fair play to Insomniac for having some fun with the reference. The Ratchet and Clank developer also kept the Avengers ‘west-coast’ reference from the original, which you can see here. If you want to see the game in action, you can check out our video comparing the graphics of Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 Pro and PS5, looking at the remastered version’s fidelity and performance mode.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered comes bundled as part of the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition. We recently reviewed the Spidey spin-off launch title on PS5, scoring it a 9 and calling it a “fantastic follow-up” to the original.
