Spider-Man 2 released last week and it didn’t take long for fans to notice a bug in a part of the game that developer Insomniac had already promised to fix.
Redditor TheHouselessTurtle spotted the Cuban flag inside and outside Morales’ apartment. Both Miles and his mother Rio are Puerto Rican.
“Can someone explain why there is a Cuban flag inside and outside Miles Morales’ apartment if he and Rio are Puerto Rican?” asked the houseless turtle. “And very proud of it in the last game.”
Others also noticed and took to social media to draw attention to the error.
It looks like Insomniac mistakenly wore the Cuban flag instead of the Puerto Rican flag in Spider-Man 2. Here is a picture of Miles Morales entering his apartment. I hope @insomniacgames can fix this soon.
The strange thing is that later in the game you can unlock your suit with the PR… pic.twitter.com/OZhbRfqUDd

@Sony @Playstation @insomniacgames Hello insomniacs. They did a great job with Miles Morales and representing Puerto Rican culture. In Spider-Man 2 you replaced the Puerto Rican flag with the Cuban one. We would like to see the flag updated to accurately represent Puerto Rico. pic.twitter.com/WfLyCS6eVs

Although the Cuban and Puerto Rican flags have a similar design, they use different colors. It’s a clear error that an insomniac is working on solving. “This will be fixed,” James Stevenson, director of community and marketing at Insomniac, tweeted in response to a fan who pointed out the bug.
The solution is here

The Morales flag isn’t the only thing Spider-Man 2 players have noticed since the release of the PlayStation 5 exclusive version. Spider-Man 2 also pays homage to the late Chadwick Boseman, who famously played the role of Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

We wrote in ours Spider-Man 2 review“As a continuation of a spectacular series, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is both blessed and cursed… Insomniac refines a winning formula of combat and web-swing without fundamentally revolutionizing either, making it comfortable and familiar with just enough new.” Tweaks and capabilities to take them to new, entertaining heights. The part that actually feels like it needs a radical rethink is the open world of New York City, made bigger but not better, with an exhausting checklist of mostly repetitive side activities. “
