Spyro is spreading his wings this year by giving fans more ways to experience the fun of Spyro Reignited Trilogy. The remastered game that made gamers fall in love with “the purple dragon from the ‘90s” lands on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam worldwide on 3 September.
Already available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, this September will mark the first time that all three original games – Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon – will be playable on these new platforms with the Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
Gamers looking for an on-the-go gaming experience can take Spyro Reignited Trilogy with them on their next adventure via the Nintendo Switch in handheld mode. The remastered trilogy also gives players on PC via Steam something to look forward to this year with the ability to play with up to 4K graphics and uncapped framerate capability on supporting systems.
To celebrate Spyro’s 21 years of saving the Dragon Realms with a remastered twist, lead developer Toys For Bob is inviting fans to tune in to a special live stream on Games Done Quick’s Twitch Channel at 7PM SAST on 3 September. During the stream, fans will get a dragon’s-eye view into how the studio is commemorating the launch of the game on these two platforms and how players can join in on the fun.
The Spyro Reignited Trilogy features the memorable and exciting gameplay that fans will remember from the ‘90s but in beautiful, HD graphics. The trilogy features over 100 levels, enhanced reward sequences, and Spyro’s crew of eccentric pals, including Sparx the Dragonfly, Hunter, Sheila, Agent 9 and Sgt. Byrd.
The trilogy also provides players with an enhanced experience with beautifully rendered environments, enhanced controls and awe-inspiring cinematics for added flair in these epic adventures.
The game will be available for download on Steam for PC and the Nintendo eShop on 3 September for $40.
