Spyro the Dragon’s trilogy of PS1 games put future Spider-Man developer Insomniac Games on the map, and now their 90s-defining moment has been remastered for a new generation in the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. It’s almost out! Let’s hope the guys doing the remastering have now figured out how to fit all three games on one disc.
If you have the time, you should watch the Gaming Historian’s “History of Spyro” video. It dives deep into Insomniac’s origins, reveals why Spyro is a dragon and why he is purple, how the team achieved such a large field of vision with the low processing available on the PS1, and more. Fascinating stuff.
but before you do that, give this Spyro Reignited Trilogy launch trailer a look. “Launch” should be in quotes as it’s not out YET, but November 13 is just three weeks away.
Spyro’s back and he’s all scaled up! Same sick burns, same smoldering attitude, now all scaled up in stunning HD. Spyro is bringing the heat like never before in the Spyro™ Reignited Trilogy game collection. Rekindle the fire with the original three games, Spyro™ the Dragon, Spyro™ 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro™: Year of the Dragon. Explore the expansive realms, re-encounter the fiery personalities and relive the adventure in fully remastered glory. Because when there’s a realm that needs saving, there’s only one dragon to call.
