Activision and Toys For Bob announced today the return of Stewart Copeland (The Police) to the Spyro franchise. Copeland, the series’ original composer, revealed a clip of the new soundtrack main theme featured in Spyro Reignited Trilogy to fans during the Spyro: Reigniting a Legend panel. Known as “Tiger Train,” Copeland’s new intro reprises recognisable music motifs from the first three Spyro games into a memorable, orchestral-rock journey.
And the Spyro nostalgia beat doesn’t end there! Franchise fans can go down music memory lane as the Spyro Reignited Trilogy brings a new in-game audio feature that allows players to switch between Copeland’s original and the newly remastered soundtracks. Players can simply fly in to the “options menu” at any time during gameplay, unleash their preferred nostalgic or scaled up groove, and glide right back into the Spyro action without losing saved data.
“Creating new music for the Spyro Reignited Trilogy has been incredibly fun and nostalgic for me,”said Stewart Copeland, acclaimed musician (The Police), film score writer and composer. “Seeing how the fans loved the original series and soundtrack was a very heart-warming experience 20 years ago, and being able to revisit that fun with the new game has brought things full circle. I can’t wait for players to hear the new intro title track and enjoy the option to play the remastered game to my original music when the trilogy arrives this fall. ‘Tiger Train’ includes some of my favorite themes from the original soundtrack, which I’m sure the Spyro faithful will appreciate!”
Spyro Reignited Trilogy is releasing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One September 21, 2018.
