Spyro Reignited Tril­ogy

Back to ba­sics

Play (UK) - - Contents -

It seems like a life­time ago that Spyro The Dragon span off into a whole new se­ries and be­came one of the big­gest play­ers in the toys-to-life sphere, but that’s what hap­pened, and as a re­sult a clas­sic, but de­clin­ing hero was given a new lease of life. But times have moved on, and the orig­i­nal Plays­ta­tion gen­er­a­tion is growing older and more nos­tal­gic, as the suc­cess of the Crash Bandi­coot N. Sane Tril­ogy proved, so it feels like a log­i­cal next step for Ac­tivi­sion to re­vive its other Psone mas­cot in a sim­i­lar fash­ion. That it has Toys For Bob at the helm is a promis­ing move, given its fa­mil­iar­ity with the char­ac­ter up to this point.

The team made the orig­i­nal Sky­lan­ders and worked on the se­ries from 2011 to 2016, but de­spite be­ing so in­grained in this mod­ern in­car­na­tion of Spyro, it has looked to rein­vent the char­ac­ter again by lean­ing on his first ap­pear­ances and try­ing to re­cap­ture the man­ner­isms and at­ti­tude of those ti­tles. It’s even gone so far as to hire the orig­i­nal voice ac­tor, Tom Kenny, who voiced Spyro in Ripto’s Rage and Year Of The Dragon.

He’s also the voice of Spongebob Squarepants. Any­way, this tril­ogy covers the first three games, com­pletely re­mak­ing them top to bot­tom, and it looks ab­so­lutely stun­ning.

Spyro reignited tril­ogy is the lat­est project from Sky­lan­ders devel­oper Toys For Bob. Find out more here: spy­rothe­dragon.com
