It appears that the original Spyro the Dragon trilogy (Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon), one of the PlayStation’s most beloved series of games, will be getting a remastered release later this year, seemingly taking cues from 2017’s wildly popular Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.

As reported by Kotaku, multiple sources familiar with this project have stated that the game is currently in development by Vicarious Visions and the publisher Activision plans to announce the game in March and are eyeing a Q3 2018 release for the game’s PS4 version.

Like Crash Bandicoot, this remastered Spyro trilogy will feature all-new assets, cinematics, animations, and a remastered soundtrack. It will also reportedly include updates to the games’ save mechanics, dropping the password system for something easier and more modern. Also, in addition to including the original three Spyro titles, there are talks of this new collection containing content that was cut from those game’s original releases.

The aforementioned PS4 version of the game is the one that will likely be announced in March and released later this year (specifically September, according to one source.) Also, once again like Crash, the remastered Spyro trilogy will start out as a PS4 exclusive but is expected to be ported to other systems a year after its initial release. So, fans should be sure to keep their eyes open for Xbox One and Nintendo Switch versions of the collection in 2019.
