Spyro Reignited Trilogy Coming to PS4 and Xbox One this Fall, but Switch Misses Out

The PlayStation's purple dragon is flying in for a visit.

Every day I wake up without hearing any confirmation dragons are real, and it's a bummer. But we finally do have confirmation that a remastered Spyro trilogy is on its way for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. That's almost as good (depending on whom you ask).

Rumors about a remastered Spyro trilogy have persisted since the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy racked up critical acclaim and solid sales numbers last summer. The official word from Sony is that the "Spyro Reignited Trilogy" is being developed by Toys for Bob for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and we can expect to see it on September 21. The bundle includes upgraded HD graphics, new cinematics, and improved controls for Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. It'll retail for $39.99 USD.

There's no word on a Switch release, but since Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is heading to Nintendo's platform, there's a good chance Spyro will land on it eventually.

Toys for Bob is re-building all three games from the ground-up according to the press release distributed by Sony earlier this morning. The news about the Spyro Reignited Trilogy has sparked (get it?) a lot of excitement, but there's also some discourse on whether the Spyro games were that good to begin with.

So, how about it? Does Spyro belong in the same platforming pantheon as Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog, or is he a little purple wannabe? You decide. I never got into PlayStation platformers (I had an N64), so I'll have my first go with Spyro this Fall. Be sure to read about the remake's tweaks and new features in our guide to the Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
