Making its official Nintendo Switch debut during this year’s Nintendo Direct at E3 in Los Angeles, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will mark the first time all three original Spyro games will be available on a Nintendo console. The trilogy will also mark the first Spyro appearance on a Nintendo console since Skylanders Imaginators in 2016, and the first Spyro-led game on a Nintendo console in more than 11 years. With Nintendo Switch, players can jump, glide, charge and flame their foes as they take on the challenges and adventures from the remaster, both on the go in handheld mode and from the comfort of their homes in TV mode.
The trilogy, which includes Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon, will be available to pre-order starting today via major retailers.
Spyro will also take his first ever flight on PC via Steam, showcasing the dynamic gaming collection in fiery 4K and an uncapped framerate to delight both veteran and new franchise fans.
Immaculately remade from the ground up, Spyro Reignited Trilogy features the 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). The trilogy 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.
Michelle Fonseca, vice president of product management and marketing at Activision, said: “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. 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.”
The games will be available on the Nintendo Switch and PC on 3 September 2019. The remastered trilogy is available now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
