'Spyro Reignited Trilogy' PS4, Xbox One Release Date Announced

The long-rumored Spyro the Dragon remake has finally been confirmed by Activision and developer Toys For Bob. Called Spyro Reignited Trilogy , the remake will contain Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! and Spyro Year of the Dragon.

Along with faithful recreations of the original Spyro games, the trilogy includes a new score reimagined off of the original Stewart Copeland composition. Fan-favorite (and voice of SpongeBob SquarePants) Tom Kenny has returned to provide updated voiceover work for all three games.

While fans may have loved playing Spyro back in the day, revisiting the classic game can be a bit of a chore with the clunky and dated controls. The Reignited Trilogy improves on this with better camera control and full analog stick support. Of course, visuals have been overhauled too with improved textures, lighting and the works.
