After months of speculation, Spyro has been unleashed onto the world! According to Activision, he's all scaled up and ready to flare up some enemies in the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. The Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a dynamic gaming collection that launches on September 21, 2018. The title features completely remastered visuals and should launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 over the summer.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy also supports Xbox One X and contains Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. 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.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was a PlayStation 4 exclusive for a year so it's also great to see that Spyro Reignited Trilogy hits Xbox One at the same time it hits PlayStation 4. The Spyro franchise started off on the PlayStation system so it wouldn't have been surprising to see another timed exclusivity deal between Activision and Sony.

Paul Yan, the Chief Creative Officer at developer Toys for Bob, issued the following statement alongside the reveal.

We're deeply passionate about staying true to the legacy of the original three Spyro games with the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. We've poured a lot of love into making the personalities and worlds feel just like fans remember them, while also keeping the game collection surprisingly fresh with lush, high definition detail. We're bringing back the Spyro we all fell in love with twenty years ago.

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy is available for preorder at major retailers for $39.99.

  • Would have been so cool if this was an Xbox Play Anywhere title.
  • Now THIS is a remaster I approve. I already have Crash, and I want this one even more. Oh, what a time to be alive.
  • No Switch. Deal breaker
  • I'm shocked this didn't make it to the Switch as well

  • Good news. I think timed exclusive is one of the worst thing for gamers and gaming.
  • What a surprise!!!
  • I'd like to see where you got the info about it having Xbox One X support. I've been looking but I'm not finding an official confirmation from Activision, Toys for Bob or Xbox. Wonder where this info came from.
