Activision released a final trailer announcing the return of Spyro the Dragon, who will be among us in just a few weeks in the Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
The Spyro Reignited Trilogy is almost upon us, and that only means one thing: it’s time for a darn fantastic launch trailer. The original game may have turned twenty years old this year, but the game and its sequels sure do look amazing here.
As Nintendo Switch has been finding lately, ports and remasters can be a controversial issue. On the one hand, the likes of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Captain Toad’s Treasure Tracker are being seen as quick and easy stopgaps between big releases. The flipside to this, of course, is that when it’s a beloved game from your childhood, you’re just thrilled to see it again and you do not care.
When it comes to tapping into that nostalgia, the PlayStation mascots of yesteryear have been doing really well lately. The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has gone down really well on a range of platforms, and cult favorite Sir Daniel Fortesque and his spooky MediEvil are on the way to PS4 too (no release date is confirmed for that one just yet, but we know that a big announcement is due any time now).
Maybe skeletal knights and anthropomorphic ginger marsupials don’t do it for you, though. If you’re more a fan of adorable little dragons, you’ll be super-hyped that the Spyro Reignited Trilogy is set to launch in just a couple of weeks, on November 13th. We’ve known from the early footage shown off at E3 2018 that this had some real potential, but it wasn’t clear quite yet just how much love and attention was being lavished on these games.
The spangly new launch trailer, which you can check out for yourself below, makes all of that abundantly clear. The sumptuous animation, the light swaying of every blade of grass, the comparison cuts between the original games and the Reignited Trilogy… it’s all perfectly gauged to build the hype even more as the release date approaches. Excellent work.
Just a few short weeks to go, Spyro fans. In the meantime, just enjoy the fact that your beloved franchise has clearly been given the treatment it deserved. Which is more than we can say for a lot of remasters these days.
