Earlier this year, Activision and Toys For Bob fire-breathed new life into an old mascot with the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. The compilation was released for Playstation 4 and XBox One, but Switch owners have been waiting (im)patiently for their own turn with the dragon.
Given that the Crash N-Sane Trilogy made it to Switch, I don’t think there was ever any real doubt that Spyro would turn up. Nevertheless, advance confirmation is nice. Spyro lands on Switch September 3, bringing his greatest adventures with him: the original Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon.
Immaculately remade from the ground up, Spyro Reignited Trilogy features the exciting and nostalgic gameplay that fans enjoyed years ago with over 100 levels, enhanced reward sequences, as well as the beautiful redesigns of Spyro’s hoard of zany dragons and other goofballs (including Sparx the Dragonfly, Hunter, Sheila, Agent 9 and Sgt. Byrd) and many more. The trilogy also includes enhanced environments, a remastered soundtrack, updated controls, brand-new lighting and recreated cinematics for added pizzazz in this beloved adventure. Lead developer Toys For Bob is back at it again to bring the Spyro Reignited Trilogy to Nintendo Switch, while the PC version will have the talented developers at Iron Galaxy leading the charge.
“Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a love letter to the fans. Bringing this nostalgic experience to the Nintendo Switch and Steam means that no matter what gaming platform they choose, players will have the opportunity to experience this incredibly fun and iconic game,” says Michelle Fonseca, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Activision. “Our goal is to transport players back to their precious memories from the 90s, while also inviting new fans to dive into Spyro’s world on whatever platform they desire.”
Fly, soar and burn sheep this fall on Nintendo Switch.
