Spyro Reignited Trilogy set to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One in September

  1. Spyro the Dragon is staging a comeback. Activision in celebration of the franchise’s 20th anniversary recently announced that Spyro Reignited Trilogy will land on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro as well as the Xbox One and Xbox One X on September 21.

    The trilogy will consist of remastered versions of the three original Spyro games: Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! And Spyro: Year of the Dragon. Those games first arrived in 1998, 1999 and 2000, respectively, on Sony’s groundbreaking PlayStation console.

    Activision said the trilogy will feature the “fun and nostalgic gameplay” that fans remember complete with more than 100 levels, enhanced reward sequences, updated controls and improved environments with new lighting and cinematics.

    Paul Yan, Chief Creative Officer at Toys for Bob (the project’s lead developer), said they are deeply passionate about staying true to the legacy of the original three Spyro games with the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Specifically, Yan said they invested a lot of love into making the personalities and worlds feel just like fans remember them while also keeping the game collection surprisingly fresh with lush, high definition detail.

    As a bit of an Easter egg, players of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy can enter the iconic code (↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → square) on their controllers at the Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped title screen to watch the trilogy’s trailer.

    Spyro Reignited Trilogy is available to pre-order right now from major retailers and is priced at $39.99.

    Pricing it at 40$ is not a bad move from them. I expected 60$ since it has all 3 games.

    I know I’ll enjoy it and I’m 32. Had a lot of fun playing the Spyro games back in the psone days.

    Just don't go into the games with the same expectations as when you played them as a kid :D
    I've seen many do this and feel disappointed that the games aren't as magical as they remember them.

    Yup, definitely.

    Modern titles have indeed spoiled and raised our expectations of games. Luckily though I’m a sucka for nostalgia and often go back to playing older games on the SNES, Psone, PS2 era and such.

    I greatly enjoyed the Crash remake, provided there were some parts that made me want to tear my hair out :D
