Spyro the Dragon Remastered Trilogy Reportedly Coming This September

If new word on the street is anything to go by, publisher Activision currently has a ‘remastered’ Spyro the Dragon trilogy in the works for release in September of this year.

Citing sources ‘familiar with the project’, Kotaku UK reported early this morning that the original PSX Spyro trilogy is receiving much the same treatment as last year’s wildly successful Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy. Updated visuals and soundtrack are on the cards, but most interesting is the mention of potentially seeing cut content from the original releases make its way back into these new versions. The same report says that the trilogy should launch around September 2018 as a timed exclusive for PS4.

It’s exciting stuff for anyone who cut their teeth on early PlayStation platformers, and although it’s still just a rumour at this stage, Kotaku claim that a formal announcement will be coming in March so not long to wait to see if this one holds water.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
