Spyro is spreading his wings this year by giving fans more ways to experience the fun of Spyro Reignited Trilogy. The remastered videogame that made gamers fall in love with “the purple dragon from the ‘90s” all over again lands on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam worldwide on September 3. Already available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, this September will mark the very first time that all three original games – Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon – will be playable on these new platforms with the Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
To celebrate Spyro’s 21 years of saving the Dragon Realms with a remastered twist, lead developer Toys For Bob is inviting fans to tune in to a special live stream on Games Done Quick’s Twitch Channel at 6:00pm BST on Sept. 3rd. During the stream, fans will get a dragon’s-eye view into how the studio is commemorating the launch of the game on these two platforms and how players can join in on the fun.
In the Spyro & Friends Grand Prix, players can burn rubber and cruise through “Spyro Circuit,” the all-new Spyro-themed track while collecting gems, dodging firework bundles and (of course) flying by sheep. Spyro won’t be venturing into this alone, the purple speedster will be joined by Hunter and Gnasty Gnorc as playable characters with Sparx joining in the fun as a protection mask akin to Aku Aku on the Spyro Circuit track. The Spyro & Friends Grand Prix will also come packed with other hot content that players can earn when connected to the internet, such as fresh new rides with the Spyromobile, Gnasty Ride and Dragonfly, as well as other new Pit Stop items including the amazing new Gem Paint Jobs and element-themed wheels, the Viking Polar Skin, the Orc Big Norm skin and more!
