We learned earlier in the year that Spyro, the dragon of dragons, will be remastered for the PS4 in the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Now it’s not just words, because we have a trailer! PlayStation released an announcement trailer on their YouTube channel. It’s been a while since I last visited the original game, so let’s take a look together!
The adventure begins! I could get used to this higher resolution Spyro. You can see in the trailer how they displayed the differences between the original and the remastered versions. Despite the differences in graphics, the gameplay seems much the same. PlayStation Europe described the changes and similarities:
The original roast master is back! Same sick burns, same smouldering 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.
Fly into My Heart… Or My Console
The return of this ’90s game is bringing fans a sense of nostalgia like the Crash Bandicoot remaster: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Similar to Crash Bandicoot, Spyro Reignited will be published by Activision.
It’s clear Ripto will be causing some trouble within the Trilogy, seeing as how Ripto’s Rage is included. Same old enemies, same fired-up moves, and the same glistening scales. So, based off of the trailer, it’s safe to say this remaster will keep true to its roots. I’m curious as to what the differences will be, and what will be as-remembered. Not only will this game be for the PS4, but for the Xbox One as well. Get excited, because this childhood classic returns September 21, 2018.
