It has been reported that a remaster of the Spyro the Dragon Trilogy may be coming to the PlayStation 4 later this year. Spyro became one of the most iconic video game characters after his success back in the PS1 era.
Several sources revealed to Kotaku that the original Spyro trilogy -Spyro the Dragon, Ripto’s Rage, and Year of the Dragon- are all going to be remastered by Activision. Ever since the successful re-release of the original Crash Bandicoot trilogy, it is not that surprising that Spyro will be getting the same treatment. The report from Kotaku mentioned that the remaster of Spyro the Dragon will “feature new assets, lighting, animations, and cinematics, as well as a remastered soundtrack. It will also feature updates to the save feature.”
Activision is set to announce the project sometime in March with the game becoming available for purchase later this year for the PS4, with PS4 Pro support. A source also revealed that September may be the possible launch month for the project since it will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the Spyro franchise.
It has also been reported that the remastered version of Spyro will be exclusive to the PS4 for one year, and will be ported to other systems in 2019. Since Activision (the team behind the remaster of Crash Bandicoot) is heading this project, could we also expect to see N. Sane Trilogy ported to other consoles as the game approaches its first year after release?
Spyro the Dragon Remaster is going to be developed by Vicarious Visions, together with Activision. What do you think of the plan to remaster the Spyro franchise? Share your best Spyro experience down in the comments below.
