Activision officially announces Spyro Reignited Trilogy for PS4 and Xbox One


Earlier today Activision announced that Spyro Reignited Trilogy is set to release later this year, providing remakes of the three games released on PSOne.

Two months after Kotaku UK published a report declaring that a Spyro the Dragon remaster was in the works, a pair of leaks on Amazon appear to have corroborated that rumor. While the game has been confirmed for the PS4 and the Xbox One, there's no official world yet for a Nintendo Switch or a PC version of the game.

Fans of the series have been itching for a new Spyro adventure, and Spyro Reignited Trilogy should scratch that itch for long-time players as it follows in the remaster footsteps of the Crash Bandicoot series.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy will launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 21st.

As you probably can guess from the name, the Spyro Reignited Trilogy will include remasters of all three original Spyro games.

Lead developer Toys for Bob is handling this Spyro renaissance, so hopefully the final product stands on its own and we'll be thrilling to all the Spyro we can handle soon enough. The collection is being called the "Spyro Reignited Trilogy" and it will be released sometime later this year. This doesn't come as much of a surprise as the existence of a remastered Spyro game has been teased recently in the form of purple dragon eggs being sent out to the media. A recent report had revealed that Activision was thinking along the same lines for Spyro the Dragon trilogy. Each level in Spyro Reignited Trilogy is mapped faithfully from the originals. Activision has remade the trilogy "from the ground-up" with "improved environments, updated controls, brand-new lighting and recreated cinematics".

The original voice actor for Spyro will be reprising his role and the other characters in the series will be "creatively re-imagined with additional flair".

With the success of remastered video game compilations such as Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, more and more classics are being brought back to life and released on the latest gaming consoles.
