Update: As we expected, Nintendo has now removed the listing. No official explanation has been issued at this time.
Original: After months of speculation and rumors, the
Spyro Reignited Trilogy has officially been revealed. The announcement only included details about the Trilogy‘s release on PlayStation and Xbox platforms, and the game’s developers refused to comment on a possible Switch release. However, if the Nintendo UK Store is to be believed, everyone’s favorite purpose dragon will indeed be coming to Switch.
You can currently head over to the Nintendo UK Store online and
find a listing for “Spyro the Dragon Remastered.” You can even pre-order the upcoming game for £39.99, which is the same price that the Reignited Trilogy is listed at. Despite having a different name, the details appear to be exactly the same as what we’ve heard about the Reignited Trilogy on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Here’s the official description provided by Nintendo:
Spyro’s back and he’s all scaled up!
The original roast master is back! Same sick burns, same smoldering attitude, now all scaled up in stunning HD. Spyro is bringing the heat like never before in the Spyro™ Reignited Trilogy game collection. Rekindle the fire with the original three games, Spyro™ the Dragon, Spyro™ 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro™: Year of the Dragon. Explore the expansive realms, re-encounter the fiery personalities and relive the adventure in fully remastered glory. Because when there’s a realm that needs saving, there’s only one dragon to call.
Spyro™ the Dragon
Gnasty Gnorc has returned from exile and has unleashed evil magic on the Dragon Realms, trapping the Dragons in crystal and raising an army of Gnorcs. Spyro, with his friend Sparx the Dragonfly, is the only Dragon left who can traverse the six Homeworlds, free the Dragons and save the day. Guide Spyro as he glides through the Dragon Realms, toasting colorful enemies with his fiery breath and encountering countless puzzles and adventures along the way.
Spyro™ 2: Ripto’s Rage!
Spyro has been brought to the land of Avalar to defeat the evil sorcerer Ripto who has brought war to Avalar’s Homeworlds. Each Homeworld is being held captive by Ripto and his minions, and it’s up to Spyro to defeat them and bring peace to Avalar’s realms. In this adventure, Spyro powerflames, supershots and headbashes his way through enemies while completing unique challenges such as herding strange beasts, target shooting and defeating ravenous dinosaurs.
Spyro™: Year of the Dragon
The Dragon Realms are celebrating the ‘Year of the Dragon’ when a mysterious cloaked figure emerges to steal all the Dragon Eggs. Under the spell of the evil Sorceress, an army of Rhynocs is now guarding the helpless eggs in the Forgotten Realms. With new and old friends, Spyro is on a quest to recover the lost eggs, defeat the Rhynoc army and stop the evil Sorceress. Turn up the heat in this adventure by exploring the mysterious realms and completing outrageous challenges, such as pulling off sick tricks on a skateboard and stepping into a boxing ring.
At this time there is still no official word on a Nintendo Switch release for
Spyro, but this listing seems to prove it’s really happening. Given that this page may have gone up prematurely, we’ve taken a screenshot to prove its existence in the event that it’s removed. You can view it yourself below. Special thanks to Laura Kate Dale for pointing out the listing on Twitter.
