Articles Featured News Playstation

It seems folks at Activision might have seen the light with the recent runaway success of the Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy and have made plans for a Spyro the Dragon trilogy of its own. According to Kotaku and citing “sources close to the project”, Activision will be set to announce the trilogy remaster in March of 2018 with a release window of Q3 2018.

They will be remastering all 3 Insomniac titles that were overwhelmingly popular on the PS One. They will be fully remastered, much like the Crash Bandicoot games built for current gen systems and promising the return of “cut content”.

As with Crash, the Spyro trilogy will be remade with new assets, lighting and cinematics along with audio as well and will release with full PS4 Pro support. We are expecting an announcement as soon as next month and according to one source a September release date which would coincide with the series’ 20th Anniversary.

The collection will be exclusive to the PlayStation platform for one year. Apparently due to the current relationship between Sony and Activision, Sony was able to secure the same deal as it did with the Crash series as its set to release on other platforms very soon. This would definitely be a solid pick up for the PS4 and definitely be the answer to a lot of fans recent push due to the treatment that Activision gave Crash. I know I for one have been clamoring for the return of Spyro so much that I went out and bought another PS One console along with the first two Spyro games to get my fix.
