Old school gamers can rejoice, as Spyro the Dragon will be flying from the original Sony Playstation to the PS4 this fall! The news is official, coming straight from Sony this morning. Spyro Reignited Trilogy will feature remastered versions of the original three Spyro games, and it will be available on PS4 on September 21st, 2018.
This new game’s release will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the original Spyro the Dragon. According to the developer Toys for Bob, extra steps have been taken to make the new trilogy as accurate to the PS1 classics as possible. It includes leveraging assets from the original Spyro games, as well as ensuring controlling the purple dragon even feels the same way.
From Playstation.com: “Given the intense passion the fans have for the original trilogy, we are approaching development with reverence—a deep respect for all the decisions that went into making the original games. In the interest of getting the feel right, one of the first things we agreed upon internally was that Spyro’s original movement metrics — speeds and accelerations for walking, running, jumping, charging, gliding, flying, swimming, hovering, and more – should be matched as closely as possible.”
More details about Spyro Reignited Trilogy should be coming soon, but for now, there’s already enough to be excited about. Check out the official reveal trailer below!
