Insomniac has released a new Marvel's Spider-Man 2 update that aims to correct a rather embarrassing oversight relating to Miles and his heritage.

According to a new post on X, the update addresses an error in which a Cuban flag was displayed in Miles' home rather than a Puerto Rican flag.

Insomniac says it understands that "accurate representation matters" and that the studio "greatly regret[s] this error".

Miles is one of two protagonists in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

Miles Morales, who's one of the two Spider-Men (Spider-Mans?) in Spider-Man 2, is Puerto Rican, and his heritage is a point of pride both for the character and the game.

Despite this, eagle-eyed players noticed that Miles' home displays a Cuban flag rather than a Puerto Rican flag, which is a strange and silly mistake to make.

It's fair to say that the two flags look somewhat similar; the Cuban flag is a white star in a red triangle with blue and white stripes, while the Puerto Rican flag has a blue triangle with red and white stripes.

Still, given how much Miles' background informs his personality and interactions with those around him, it's not a great look for Insomniac, so this patch is welcome.

If you've somehow missed the hype train for Marvel's Spider-Man 2, it's the sequel to 2018's Marvel's Spider-Man, as well as 2020's Miles Morales followup.

The game stars both Miles and Peter Parker as they investigate a new threat in the form of Kraven the Hunter, who's targeting supervillains around the city. 

Other new villains appearing in the game include the Venom symbiote, the Lizard, and Sandman, and you'll have an expanded arsenal of combat and stealth techniques to help take them and their goons down.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 has proven pretty popular with players; the game set a record for the fastest-selling PlayStation Studios title within its first 24 hours on sale, and reviews have been very positive, too.

You can pick up Marvel's Spider-Man 2 right now exclusively on PlayStation 5, and you can read our very own Stretch's thoughts on the game here.
