This is a day that many had circled on their calendars, because it marks the release of the much wanted Spyro Reignited Trilogy. That is, the collection featuring modern, remade versions of the first three Spyro video games from the PS1 era.
At the helm this time is Toys For Bob, who previously worked on the Skylanders franchise. As such, they know the purple dragon pretty well, and did even before working on this project.
“It’s been a real pleasure to bring back one of most iconic video game characters of all time through the Spyro Reignited Trilogy,” said Paul Yan, Co-Studio Head at Toys For Bob. “We’ve poured everything we’ve got into making sure every detail was done right to deliver a great Spyro experience for fans. We hope players will have as much fun revisiting the Spyro world and characters as we did remastering them.”
“Fans have been asking Activision to bring Spyro back for some time now. The response to Spyro Reignited Trilogy has been great thus far, and we’re absolutely thrilled that we’re able to continue to reimagine and reinvigorate some of the most iconic videogames and characters of all time with our remastered experiences,” said Steve Young, Chief Revenue Officer at Activision. “With this year being the 20th anniversary of Spyro, there’s no better time to pay homage to everyone’s favorite purple dragon.”
The Spyro Reignited Trilogy is currently available for PS4 and Xbox One, and carries an asking price of $39.99 USD. You can also purchase it in a set that offers both the Spyro Reignited Trilogy and the previously released Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.
