More On: Spyro Reignited Trilogy

Announced yesterday, publisher Activision and developer Toys for Bob (of the Skylanders series and also the 2005 adaptation of Dreamworks' Madagascar) are remastering the three original Spyro games in a collection titled Spyro: Reignited Trilogy.

With a planned release date of September 21st, this surprise has come just after a hiccup on Amazon showed a webpage for the title. 

The most I remember of Spyro when I was growing up is playing a couple of titles at my cousin's house. If you'll allow a cliche, things really were simpler then. I just fired up the PS2, hoped it worked, and just wandered around because I really did not know what I was doing. 

It is important to remember though, that the last time we did see Spyro in a game of his own, was Skylanders: Spyro's Adventures, a game that developer Toys for Bob made. My younger brother got a kick out of those games (he has, like, all of them) and looking back on the experience, it's quite clear how big of a cue the toys to life games took from the old school 3D action titles of yesteryear. 

I played the Crash Bandicoot trilogy for PS4 last year, and while I did have a good time with it, it could also be ridiculously difficult sometimes. I don't anticipate Spyro being like this, as although they were around at the same time, they thankfully have different creative voices attached to them.
