Spyro Reignited trilogy could be heading to Nintendo Switch this summer, leaks suggest

THE most puzzling thing about the excellent Spyro Reignited Trilogy that came out last year was that it didn’t come out on the Nintendo Switch.

Thankfully that oversight looks set to be corrected this year, and fans of Nintendo’s console will be able to get their claws into everyone’s favourite diminutive aerial toaster.

A remaster of the PlayStation Classic, the new Spyro doesn’t just look great, but comes with all mod cons too

As spotted by @SpyroUniverse on Twitter, GameStop in Germany now has the game listed for an August 16 release on Switch.

This follows news from last year where the game’s official website listed Nintendo Switch as one of the platforms the game would be available on.

Meanwhile, Nintendo UK even had the game listed for Switch last year before it was released on PS4 and Xbox One.

The game is a rebuild of three classic games — Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon — all redone and updated for the modern era.

The new versions look at once completely new and entirely familiar

You’ve got the same charming level design as the originals, but updated for the HD era.

There are also a bunch of quality of life improvements that just make the original games better — the puzzles are the same, but there’s less backtracking needed, a better game-save system, and more that just make the game more fun to play and more palatable to today’s kids.

The controls are as simple, responsive and intuitive as you remember.

The mix of action, puzzles, cute graphics and a heavy nostalgia hit make Spyro Reignited a perfect game for parents to play with young kids who are just getting into gaming.

Dispatching enemies with fire or a swift headbutt is as satisfying as ever

Little touches around the world across all three games bring the game up to current standards without changing it too much – dragons you rescue now have different art, for instance, rather than just being different colours.

Open spaces that were barren in 1998 have grown lush with waving grass, while voices have all been re-recorded, many by the original cast, ensuring everything feels that bit crisper and fresher than before.


So fingers crossed the rumours are true, and everyone with a Switch will be able to dive in and enjoy the fun.
