Spyro: Reignited Trilogy will launch with only one game on the disc

The upcoming Spyro: Reignited Trilogy will require players to download two of the three featured titles upon its release next month.

Coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC on September 21, the Reignited Trilogy will include the original Spyro: The Dragon, Ripto’s Rage and Year of the Dragon.

All three titles have been fully remastered with updated visuals, mechanics and a newly recorded soundtrack by original composer Stewart Copeland.

However, only the first game will be available on the disc itself. According to the box art (via Wario64), a ‘content download’ is required to access the latter two titles.

Modern blu-ray discs carry about 50GB of data, and it’s highly unlikely that a single entry in the Reignited Trilogy weighs in at more than that. Or perhaps it’s the most detailed remake ever made or something? 

Fans have suggested that perhaps the latter two entries are still in development, and will be pushed later as downloads instead of on the disc itself. Time will tell, but this is a bit unusual. Here’s hoping that we aren’t subject to two beefy downloads on September 21.
