Months-long speculation about whether or not Spyro the Dragon’s original trilogy was being remastered has finally been put to rest. Early Thursday morning Activision announced that the beloved first three Spyro games — Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon — would be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 21st as the Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
This release comes after the successful June 2017 release of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy that remastered the first three titles in the Crash Bandicoot series. Crash Bandicoot players can even access the Spyro Reignited Trilogy trailer in the menu of their game by entering the famous up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, square code. You can also watch the trailer now here.
Spyro also found newfound success in past years in the Skylanders series, which reinvented his character. Not all were pleased with the changes though, the game became a hit and continues to be known for selling its figures, which are compatible with the game.
The Spyro Reignited Trilogy will feature Tom Kenny returning as Spyro’s voice actor. Toys for Bob worked to incorporate many other members of the original voice cast as well. There will also be a “reimagining” of the soundtrack done by Stewart Copeland. Graphics will be beautifully upscaled for the remaster.
In an exclusive interview with IGN, Paul Yan and Joshua Nadelberg of the development team Toys for Bob discussed the development of the remaster. Read more about or watch their interview on IGN now.
