The rumors of the three original Spyro titles being remastered, has finally been confirmed and right from Activision themselves. Spyro Reignited Trilogy is the official name and Activision even included a trailer. It shows off all the graphical adjustments the Toys for Bob team made, while also showing comparisons from the original Spyro.
This trilogy is coming to the PS4 (and the Pro) and Xbox One (including all three). It wasn’t specific on whether there will be enhancements for the PS4 Pro or the Xbox One X.
It also officially has a release date, September 21st, 2018. This makes it fall right into same month of Spyro the Dragon’s initial release date back in 1998. To celebrate Spyro’s 20th anniversay, Activision gave current Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy owners a little surprise. When at the title screen of Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, enter this code: ↑↑↓↓←→←→ square. It triggers the Spyro Reignited Trilogy trailer to start.
Every level of all three titles has been added to the trilogy, the lead development team (Toys for Bob) didn’t leave any detail out from the originals. They had access to all the original assets, and talked about how the team went about making the changes. You can see the full story on PlayStation’s blog.
Not only did the developer stay as true to the originals as possible, Spyro’s voice actor is also back. Tom Kenny, who was the voice actor in Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage and Spyro: Year of the Dragon, will be doing Spyro’s voice for all three titles in the trilogy.
You can pre-order Spyro Reignited Trilogy starting today. The whole trilogy will cost $40.
