Spyro Reignited Trilogy for Switch Leaked Again

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last November, but what about Nintendo Switch? The remastered bundle made no mention of Nintendo’s hybrid console in its initial reveal, but soon after the official Nintendo UK store temporarily accepted pre-orders for “Spyro the Dragon Remastered.” Even the Sypro UK store briefly claimed it would be coming to Switch, but eventually both pages were removed.

Nintendo has been silent on the whole situation, and Toys For Bob producer Peter Kavic would later claim that he was unaware of any Switch version of the game in the works. However, yet another listing has just popped up, months after the game’s initial release. This time GameStop Germany put a Switch version of the Reignited Trilogy in their system with a release date (most likely a placeholder) of August 16th. Once again, the listing was later removed.

It’s not really clear why there’s so much secrecy around this alleged Switch version, but if they’re trying to keep it under wraps, they haven’t exactly done the best job. Hopefully, we’ll get an official reveal soon and the speculation can end.

Crash vs. Spyro: Which Classic Trilogy Was Better?

It’s a great time to be a fan of classic PlayStation games. Last year we were treated to the
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy‏ on PlayStation 4 (with Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC versions on the way), and later this year, Spyro will get the same treatment. These remasters give newcomers the ability to experience the early PlayStation hits re-imagined on modern hardware, and they’re also a great way for nostalgic veterans to relive old favorites. If you’re a longtime fan who remembers when these games made their debut, which classic trilogy do you think was better? Cast your vote and join the debate!

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy Has Been Officially Revealed

Hot on the heels of the successful remastering of Crash Bandicoot, another original PlayStation classic is coming back. We’ve heard rumors and rumblings for weeks, and today we have official confirmation that the original trilogy of Spyro games is coming to modern platforms as the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Skylanders developer Toys for Bob is handling the hotly-anticipated HD take on these beloved games.

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy comes with Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon all remastered with improved sound and graphics. This collection will be available across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, and Xbox One X on September 21st, and it comes with a price tag of $39.99.

The Reignited Trilogy will feature a reimagining of the original soundtracks that Stewart Copeland composed for the three games. Toys for Bob did their best to recruit as many of the original voice actors to reprise their roles as possible, including Tom Kenny as the voice of Spyro himself.

Currently there are no announced plans to bring the Trilogy to PC or Nintendo Switch. IGN inquired about these possibilities, but Toys for Bob studio head Paul Yan and art director Josh Nadelberg would not comment. We’ll keep an eye on the situation for potential future announcements. In the meantime, you can check out the debut trailer above and tons of screenshots in the gallery below!

Someone’s Recreated the First Stage from the Original Spyro the Dragon in Unreal Engine 4

A modder known as IAmMurloc has been recreating the original Spyro the Dragon game in Unreal Engine 4. He has already finished some of the first stage’s key locations, such as the portal to Stone Hill, scattered gems, and even our favorite purple dragon has received a facelift.

IAmMurloc has not shown any other areas yet, but we can hope that he will continue to develop this amazing project to encompass entire levels. Perhaps it’s time for Insomniac and Sony to revisit the Dragon Kingdom with modern graphics? Let us know what you think below!

Sony is Open to Reviving Crash Bandicoot and Spyro

Andrew House, CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, has voiced the company’s feelings towards reviving franchises. In recent years, Sony has brought back many IPs through PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and individual titles such as Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. However, many franchises from the days of the PlayStation One have remained in limbo for years. In particular, Crash Bandicoot, from Naughty Dog, and Spyro the Dragon, from Insomniac Games, have both garnered a bit of a cult following over the past few years.

House spoke about these two IPs. Check out his quote.

“This is very dangerous ground. In concept, it is something we’ve been thinking about and discussing, and this is a shift for us. We’ve started to say that maybe there isn’t anything wrong with going back and looking at characters that people still talk about, that were a big part of either their childhood or their youth. I definitely wouldn’t close the door on that.” — Andrew House, CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment

Both of these franchises are currently owned by Activision, but that doesn’t remove the possibility of buying said IPs back. Personally, I feel that the age of the mascot platformer is over. It’d be cool to see either series continue, though.
