Spyro Reignited Trilogy: You’ll have to wait a couple more months to play it

Activision is diving into its library to revive yet another platforming classic in the form of Spyro: Reignited Trilogy. Beloved by gamers in the 1990s, the original Spyro experiences are set to receive a complete makeover with new visuals, mechanics and more.

Becoming a very different beast in modern times thanks to the hugely successful toys-to-life series, this is a chance for gamers to rediscover the purple dragon’s roots. Activision will hope to strike gold once again after the success of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.

What is Spyro: Reignited Trilogy?

The Reignited Trilogy is a collection featuring Spyro The Dragon and its two sequels – Ripto’s Rage and Year of the Dragon – completely remastered for modern platforms. This means you can expect new visuals, music, controls and more when the purple reptile returns later this year.

First released on the original PlayStation, the trilogy contains over 100 levels with luscious new visuals and improved controls. That’s a lot of content, and our nostalgic minds are already getting excited.

Activision confirmed in a recent press release that Reignited will reimagine Stewart Copeland’s iconic soundtrack from the first three games and recreate all cinematics with a modern coat of paint.

“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.”

Spyro: Reignited Trilogy release date – when can I play it?

Spyro: Reignited Trilogy is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on November 13. Originally scheduled for a September release, the delay is so the development team can put additional ‘love and care’ into the experience: 

‘I really hoped that you would be rescuing dragons and scorching Rhynocs sooner, but the Trilogy needs more love and care. In November when you’re exploring the Dragon Realms, Avalar and the Forgotten Worlds, we know you’ll agree the extra time was worth the wait,’ explained Toys for Bob’s Paul Yan.

The collection was briefly listed on the Nintendo Store for Switch before being taken down. Perhaps Nintendo is planning its own announcement ahead of release? Thanks to Siliconera for the spot.
