NEWS - Spyro: Reignited Trilogy Coming to PS4 and Xbox One
Reported by NCZ on Thu Apr 5 2018

It's been an amazing few couple of years for nostalgic fans of Playstation 1 games. Final Fantasy VII has a remake lined up, iconic series like Tekken, Tomb Raider, and Gran Turismo just got major new releases, and other games like Crash Bandicoot, Wipeout, and PaRappa the Rapper have been remastered. Platformers especially have been making a big comeback, with Super Mario Odyssey, Sonic Mania, Celeste, and Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap being just a few of the past year's most beloved games.


Following in the footsteps of last year's Crash: N-Sane Trilogy is the other mascot platformer that defined the PS1: Spyro. Spyro the Dragon: Reignited Trilogy is a full remake of the original series, featuring the same gameplay and level designs with lush new graphics. It features all three of Insomniac's original Spyro games: Spyro the Dragon, Ripto's Rage, and Year of the Dragon. A trailer can be seen below, featuring some comparisons of the original Spyro with its PS4 makeover:




Publisher Activision have also announced that voice actor Tom Kenny, who played Spyro in the second two games, will be returning for Reignited Trilogy, lending his voice to all three games.


Spyro: Reignited Trilogy comes out for PS4 and Xbox One on September 21, 2018, just in time for the series's 20th anniversary.

I had a feeling that this would come true after Crash's remastered trilogy. Not saying is a bad thing, but I wonder what other PS1 classics would get remastered next...

This better not be, an excuse to make the Skylanders franchise canon to the Spyro franchise, cause I will not be happy!

Apparently Gregg Berger mentioned he's returning as well to voice Hunter and Ripto

As long as he would up the ante with his take on Spyro once more, then i could safely assume that he's going to do better.

As i barely played Spyro, i might get this one.

I kinda do wish they got Carlos back for the first game only, but oh well. Consistency and all.

@Ghosty404 - I really don't get this mindset

What's wrong with all three games having the same voice?

@HyperVoiceActing Maybe it’s a nice callback??????? Maybe?????????????? I mean if I shouldn’t expect a callback revamp to have a sensible callback..........

@Ghosty404 - What's so sensible about having an actor voice one character for one game and then just ditch for all the other games?

If Crash Bandicoot gets a trilogy, then Spyro also gets one.

Really looking forward to seeing more of this

Hopefully Tom can sound less bored than he did in Spyros 2 and 3

@HyperVoiceActing Just from hearing those voice clips, I wouldn't have known it was Tom. It sounds like he's upping Spyro's pluckiness.

@immblueversion - He certainly surprised me from those clips, I'll give you that

I always had hope that a Spyro PS1 trilogy remake would be a reality at some point. What I never expected, was for it to be out this year. That's incredible. It's also great to know that Tom Kenny is back voicing Spyro again.

This is nice and all but I would honestly prefer new games than remastered versions of the old ones. That being said I hope we get more Sly Cooper stuff too!

Dang every old game is getting a second chance. First Crash then Bubsy and now Spro? Neat! Now when is Xenosaga going to get it's chance...

@Soul-dragon I get what you mean about Crash and Spyro; hopefully in the future, when Sony I.E brought them off of Activision's hands, they should pick up where they left off and maybe making a deal to other developers to do it.

Nobody gives a demn about that knock off platformer (Bubsy) as he has nothing to the table.

Sorry, i had to get that off my chest.

WILD WOODY FOR REMASTER NEXT, PLEASE

No seriously, this is awesome. Now we can pretend the Skylander years never happened.
