After leaking online late yesterday in an online store listing, Activision has revealed today that Spyro the Dragon is indeed returning in late September in a fully remastered collection titled Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
Unlike last year's Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which was remastered by Vicarious Visions, Spyro Reignited Trilogy is being worked on by Toys for Bob, the same developer that created the now-defunct Skylanders series.
Insomniac Games, who developed the original Spyro trilogy of games, is not involved with this collection.
IGN spoke with Toys for Bob's Paul Yan and Joshua Nadelberg, who revealed that the original score (which was composed by The Police's Stewart Copeland) has been reimagined for this collection. Also, while the original Spyro was split between two different voice actors, the Spyro in Reignited Trilogy will be entirely voiced by Tom Kenny -- the renowned voice actor behind Sponge Bob Squarepants and many other characters, and who originally did the voice for Spyro in Spyro: Ripto's Rage and Spyro: Year of the Dragon.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy is slated for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 21. No official release has been announced for Nintendo Switch as of yet, though the game is listed on Nintendo UK's online store; it is unknown if this is simply a mistake or if that version's reveal will come at a later time.
