Nostalgic gamers are going to get what they’ve been asking for, when the Spyro Reignited Trilogy hits physical and digital store shelves this fall. Activision officially revealed one of gaming’s worst kept secrets (and most wanted efforts) today, through press release means.
Remade from the ground up by lead developer, Toys For Bob (Skylanders), the Spyro Reignited Trilogy will bring the series’ first three titles to modern devices. This means that fans can look forward to updated versions of Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon, all of which were originally released onto the first PlayStation console.
In addition to boasting more than 100 levels to play through, this reworked set will also offer improved environments, updated controls, brand new lighting systems, improved rewards and recreated cinematics.
“We’re deeply passionate about staying true to the legacy of the original three Spyro games with the Spyro Reignited Trilogy,” said Paul Yan, Chief Creative Officer, at Toys For Bob. “We’ve poured a lot of love into making the personalities and worlds feel just like fans remember them, while also keeping the game collection surprisingly fresh with lush, high definition detail. We’re bringing back the Spyro we all fell in love with 20 years ago.”
The Spyro Reignited Trilogy will be released on September 21st, and will be playable on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It is now available for pre-order, at a suggested retail price of $39.99.
