The end credits of Spider-Man: Miles Morales feature a touching tribute to Chadwick Boseman, but there’s another in-game nod to the late actor you might have missed.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is one of the PS5’s best launch games, and has received attention not only for introducing Peter Parker’s successor Morales, but also for featuring a moving homage to the late Marvel Cinematic Universe star Chadwick Boseman.

Boseman is best known for his role as T’Challa, who debuted in Captain America: Civil War and went on to star in the Black Panther and Avengers movies. His final role in upcoming Netflix movie Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is already picking up Oscar buzz due to his stellar performance.

So it’s a fitting tribute for the team at Insomniac Games to include references to Boseman’s legacy in their latest Spider-Man adventure, which dropped simultaneously on PS4 and PS5 on November 12, 2020.

How to find the first Chadwick Boseman tribute

The first and most obvious homage to Chadwick Boseman comes during the credits. So just complete the game, which should take you around 8 to 10 hours, and you’ll see the touching message appear on the screen after the credits roll.

“In loving memory of a noble king, Chadwick Boseman,” the tribute reads. “His honor, strength, and compassion will reverberate for generations to come. Wakanda forever.”

A second, more subtle tribute to the late Boseman has also been found in the game by Reddit user RollieDell.

An in-game spidey selfie posted on the website shows Miles Morales in front of a street sign that reads Boseman Way, highlighting how the game’s creators renamed 42nd street as Boseman Way.

I found another tribute to Chadwick Boseman is Spider-Man: Miles Morales. 42nd Street becomes Boseman Way between 1st and 3rd Street. Mr. Boseman’s big breakout role was in the film, “42.” from marvelstudios

This is especially significant because Boseman’s breakout role was in the biographical movie 42, where he portrayed baseball star Jackie Robinson – the first Black athlete to play in Major League Baseball.

There are plenty of easter eggs like this one hidden throughout Spider-Man: Miles Morales, including a number of collectibles like Thor’s Hammer and the Wakandan Flag which can be found in time capsules.

Another recent blockbuster game, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, has fans going wild for its clever easter eggs, including more than one reference to JK Rowling’s world of Harry Potter. You can read about those here.

Game Freak has announced a special Pokemon Presents on February 26. What will be announced? The long-rumored Sinnoh Diamond & Pearl remakes? A Let’s Go sequel? Here’s how to watch the stream to find out.

As we inch closer to Pokemon Day on February 27, the stakes have never been higher for the popular Nintendo series. This year marks the franchise’s 25th anniversary, making the annual celebration an even bigger deal than usual.

Hanging over the event are the long-rumored Diamond & Pearl remakes, meaning excitement filled the air when Game Freak announced a February Pokemon Presents. Here is everything you need to know about the digital conference.

Pokemon Presents date & start time

Rumors about a Sinnoh remake have been swirling for so long that many fans have already accepted it as a foregone conclusion. While not confirmed, Game Freak’s surprise Pokemon Presents seems to line up with a major game reveal.

The digital event is slated for February 26, and goes live at 7:00 AM (PST) / 10:00 AM (ET) / 3:00 PM (GMT). Make sure to mark your calendars and set your alarms – depending on what region you are in, the stream will begin really early.

As for what will be revealed, it’s anyone guess. Although several leaks and rumors claim it to be a Sinnoh title. We wouldn’t rule out a Let’s Go sequel getting a mention either, although Game Freak confirmed the Presents will be 20 minutes in length – similar to Sword & Shield’s in 2019.

How to watch Pokemon Presents

Those wanting to catch the exciting Pokemon Presents live will need to head over to YouTube a few minutes before the times listed above. The digital conference will stream on the official Pokemon channel.

For your convenience, we’ve embedded the stream below so all you have to do is refresh the page at the time and it will load. We will also be updating this page once the conference is over to make sure the replay of the event is posted.

The Pokemon Presents holds more weight than usual, simply because it falls on the series’ 25th anniversary. Based on Game Freak’s history, it also makes sense for a remake of an older title given we are in between generations, with Gen 9 expected in 2022.

Only time will tell if the Japanese company delivers what many fans have been asking for over the last few years. However, regardless of what is announced, it’s never been a more exciting time to be a fan of the Nintendo RPG.
