Spyro Reignited Trilogy is coming to the Switch, as announced by Activision this E3. Making less of a splash, it’ll soon be on PC too.
The dragon is back
Following in the footsteps of fellow Activision property Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon is back. The action/platforming hero has returned for modern audiences in a triple set of classic games, remade from the ground up.
Also following in the footsteps of Crash, is Spyro’s release calendar. Sort of. While the Reignited Trilogy first appeared on both PS4 and Xbox One, it did not initially receive Switch and PC launches. And it kind of didn’t look like it was going to get them either.
At this current E3 show though, Activision announced just that. Both editions of Spyro Reignited Trilogy will be hitting retail, and both of them look to duplicate the experience from other platforms.
- Making its official Nintendo Switch debut during this year’s Nintendo Direct at E3, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will mark the first time all three original Spyro games will be available on a Nintendo console. The trilogy will also mark the first Spyro appearance on a Nintendo console since Skylanders® Imaginators in 2016, and the first Spyro-led game on a Nintendo console in more than 11 years. With Nintendo Switch, players can jump, glide, charge and flame their foes as they take on the challenges and adventures from the remaster both on the go in handheld mode or from the comfort of their homes in TV mode.
- Spyro will also take his first ever flight on PC via Steam when Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI) brings the dynamic gaming collection in fiery 4K and an uncapped framerate to delight both veteran and new franchise fans.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy is ready for pre-order right now, and will run you $39.99 USD. It’ll land on store shelves some time this summer.
