Updated October 30, 2018: Even after being delayed a month, only one game will ship on the Spyro Reignited Trilogy disc. The rest will have to be downloaded from the Xbox or PlayStation stores.
After months of speculation, Activision revealed Spyro Reignited Trilogy to the world. According to the company, he's all scaled up and ready to flare up some enemies on September 21, 2018. The title features completely remastered visuals and should launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in digital and disc formats.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy also supports Xbox One X and contains Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. Just like Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, the game is expected to run at native 4K resolution on the console. Fans have been asking for this collection for years now, and it's great to see Activision listening to consumers. The trilogy also includes improved environments, updated controls, new lighting, and recreated cinematics for added flavor.
Unfortunately, it's not all great news for those hoping to pick up the physical edition. According to a promotional page on the game's website, only the first title is included on the disc. In order to play the other two, you'll need to rely on the internet. Many gamers which live in certain regions where there are restrictions on speed or availability. That's why they prefer physical media. Hopefully the downloads aren't that large so it won't be too much of a problem.
Aside from this issue, there's no stopping Spyro. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was a PlayStation 4 exclusive for a year so it's great to see that this trilogy hits Xbox One at the same time as PlayStation 4.
