The game industry is known for its fierce competition, with every studio constantly striving to release titles that surpass others. However, this doesn't mean that gamers and developers cannot recognize and appreciate exceptional games when they encounter them.

Game Director Masahiro Sakurai, famous for creating the Kirby and Super Smash Bros. franchises, took to Twitter to announce his completion of both Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and Super Mario Bros. Wonder. Sakurai hailed both games as "masterpieces" and expressed confidence in their universal appeal. Despite his enthusiasm, Sakurai expressed frustration over their simultaneous release, making it challenging for him to fully immerse himself in each game.

"I finished "Spider-Man 2'' and "Super Mario Bros. Wonder'' last night. It's a problem when the release dates of big titles you should watch overlap...! However, I think both are masterpieces that I can recommend to anyone. The new games are amazing, and I'm grateful to them for making them," shared Sakurai.

Following its recent public release, Marvel's Spider-Man 2 has captivated fans who are diving headfirst into the game. Developed by Insomniac Games, this highly anticipated title is receiving praise for its impressive features, notably the fast travel system. While Marvel's Spider-Man 2 currently takes the spotlight, another game showcasing one of the most iconic video game characters was also unveiled on the same day. Alongside the release of Marvel's Spider-Man 2, Masahiro Sakurai also commended Super Mario Bros. Wonder for its exceptional design.

The Marvel's Spider-Man franchise enjoys immense popularity in Japan. In fact, in 2018, local developers selected the first installment as their game of the year, surpassing notable titles like Red Dead Redemption 2 and God of War, which didn't even make it into the top three rankings.

Sony recently announced that Marvel's Spider-Man 2 achieved an unprecedented milestone by selling 2.5 million copies within just 24 hours, making it the fastest-selling game ever released by PlayStation Studios.
