PS4 and Xbox One gamers who don’t think there are enough old school games on the new platforms are about to be very happy. On Thursday morning it was announced that the Spiro Reignited Trilogy is officially coming to the consoles later this year. The announcement comes after rumors had been swirling for quite some time that remastered versions of the beloved game were on the way. The game is set to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the series’ official beginning on the original PlayStation.
As the title of the remastered title likely tipped you off, it will have three titles in one. Spyro the Dragon, Spyro: Year of the Dragon and Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage will all be given some souped-up graphics and gameplay in order to look and feel better on the better consoles. The developers have said that they want to rez-up the graphics from the original games, but want to make sure that the art style that came in those original PlayStation titles stays true to what we’ve seen in previous versions.
Because the new trilogy wants to make sure to capture a new generation of gamers, but still have plenty to offer to those who played the originals, there are going to be a few new additions as well. It appears there will be some Orb Challenges, mini-games and what the developers have only teased as “more.”
There is also going to be some work done on remapping the controls, as those would cause a few problems with the new controllers and camera angles on the PS4 and Xbox One today. As for now, the two announced consoles are indeed the PS4 and Xbox One. There hasn’t been a mention of the game eventually coming to the Switch, but it seems like a perfect fit. Spyro Reignited Trilogy will arrive on September 21, 2018.
