Of course there’s a mod to add Kermit the Frog to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC. We expected nothing less.
The Windows PC remaster of 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man, which was originally available on the PlayStation only, brought the game to PC at long last on the 12th of August 2022. And as per usual, nothing that exists on PC is sacred or safe from the imaginative hands of modders. Modders have already started to make goofy changes and edits to the game, despite it only having been out for a matter of weeks.
A popular modder has recently risen to fame on nexusmods.com, despite only having created four mods on the platform. All four of the mods are for Marvel’s Spider-Man and include mods titled “The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Suit” which has an astonishing 27.2 thousand downloads, “Symbiotic Suit Pack” which has 7.2 thousand downloads, and “The Superior Spider-Man Suit” which has 2 thousand downloads.
It seems that the creator has an affinity for making cosmetic changes to the game, as most of his mods show up on the front page as the most popular mods for the game currently.
Kermit The Frog
Speaking of popular mods for the game, it’s always the odd and slightly disturbing mods that suddenly shoot to popularity, and this case is no different. A mod has been rising in the ranks that replaces Spider-Man’s iconic suit with Kermit the Frog from The Muppets.
The mod is titled “Kermit The Frog – Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered” and is “Kermit The Frog over the Advanced Suit. That’s it.”
It’s no surprise that the mod was also made by the rising talent TangoTeds. The mod was uploaded to Nexus Mods on the 28th of August 2022 and already has over 3 thousand downloads.
Although it is odd, who wouldn’t admittedly want to sling webs and take down enemies as a muppet? TangoTeds is feeling the pressure of his mode rising to popularity as he posted on Twitter (which has since gone viral) “Don’t ever let me make mods again.”
If you don’t want to just play the mod for yourself, there is a video of the mod in action on YouTube, and the mod is so well done that it is equally unnerving and hilarious at the same time. Kermit’s floppy puppet body contorts and twists as he slings on webs from building to building, his oddly proportioned feet (perfect for a puppet but just a little too big for a human) make the situation even more hilarious.
It’s fascinating to see Kermit getting violent with enemies his own size as his floppy, thin arms, and legs flail in combat. The mod is very well done but is a little terrifying in cutscenes as a human-sized proportionally correct Kermit runs around.
Unfortunately, the mod is only able to change the character model and is purely cosmetic, not changing his voice, so we don’t get the full immersion of hearing Kermit’s nasally voice in the game, but as it is, hearing the voice of Peter Parker coming out of a puppet suit is jarring and ads to the effect of the mod.
