While rumors have swirled for the past few months — really heating up this week — it has officially been confirmed by publisher Activision that we will be getting a Spyro remaster trilogy. Titled Spyro Reignited Trilogy, the game will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the long-running PlayStation series on September 21, 2018. The game will be launching for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
As noted by the title, the game is a trilogy — meaning it will be showcasing the three original games: Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. Don’t expect any additions of the Skylanders series.
According to the game’s press release, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will focus on scaling up the decades-old original games to HD graphics, while staying faithfully re-mapped to the originals. As a throwback to the original, Tom Kenny — the original voice actor for the second and third game in the series — will be making his triumphant return. However, the remaster will also add something to the mix — notably some Orb Challenges, mini-games and more. Additionally, the development team (Toys for Bob) will be working to update the controls from the original PlayStation controller to mitigate historical control and camera issues.
As mentioned above, the Spyro Reignited Trilogy will be coming to PS4 and Xbox One on September 21, 2018 for the budget price of $39.99. There has been no indication that the game will be making its way to either Nintendo Switch or the PC. You can check out the trailer below:
