Spyro Reignited Trilogy Coming This September
Turns out all those rumors about everybody's favorite purple dragon getting a remaster were true: Activision announced today that the original three Spyro the Dragon games are getting full HD remakes just in time for the series' 20th anniversary this fall.
Set to release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 21 at a suggested retail price of $39.99, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will include Spyro the Dragon (1998), Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! (1999), and Spyro: Year of the Dragon (2000). From the looks of the reveal trailer above, former Skylanders developer Toys for Bob has completely overhauled the visuals of the original PS1 trilogy, bringing the beloved little scorcher fully into the 21st century alongside fellow mascot Crash Bandicoot (who himself recently enjoyed the HD treatment).
In addition to the polished new looks, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will feature full analog stick support, new rewards, and (perhaps controversially) a "reimagined" soundtrack, making this more of a complete remake than a remaster. And in news sure to please everyone, actor Tom Kenny, who voiced Spyro in Ripto's Rage! and Year of the Dragon, will again be bringing his incredible talents to the series.
