Spyro Reignited Trilogy announced

Launching on September 21, just in time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the beloved purple dragon, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will be available on PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One.

The listing claims that the upcoming trilogy will contain remastered versions of Spyro: The Dragon, Ripto's Rage and Year of the Dragon.

All three games have been remade from the ground up by Toys for Bob, all while preserving the gameplay experience that fans remember.

Fans looking to jump back into the world of Spyro will be able to do just that with the forthcoming Spyro Reignited Trilogy edition.

Essentially this means you get over 100 levels with the Ignited Trilogy, alongside revamped reward sequences, enhanced environments, new controls, and all-new snazzy lighting effects.

Rumors of a Spyro trilogy first began flying around previous year with the release of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. And it is turning to another video game classic today with the unveiling of a Spyro the Dragon remake.

Design Director "Toys for Bob" Toby Schadt said, "Now twenty years on, we are deeply honored to have the responsibility of remastering Insomniac's historic trilogy, and our most powerful motivator is knowing how important Spyro is to millions of passionate fans across the globe".

A listing on Amazon Mexico lists Spyro: Reignited Trilogy for a PS4 launch on 21st September 2018, along with some convincing-looking box art (now removed) and store text.

It's interesting that Activision has taken a different route with the release of this trilogy, as they chose to make the Crash remakes a timed PlayStation 4-exclusive.

Along with faithful recreations of the original Spyro games, the trilogy includes a new score reimagined off of the original Stewart Copeland composition.

Spyro then acted as the ambassador (and blueprint) for the Skylanders series, beginning with Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure in 2011.

Ultimately, we were also able to leverage numerous original assets such as level models, level collision, animated objects, character models, music, game text, and game sounds. Additionally, Tom Kenny, voice actor for Spyro 2 and its successor Year of the Dragon will return to reprise his role as part of the trilogy.
