Rumor: Spyro the Dragon Trilogy Remaster Heading to PS4 in Q3 2018

Following the successful and wonderful Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, there’s a new rumor (via Kotaku) that Activision is actually remastering the classic Spyro the Dragon trilogy.

The trilogy will include all three classic Insomniac Games-developed titles from the PlayStation 1, including: Spyro the DragonSpyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon.

Fans can expect the port to have new assets, animations, lighting, remastered music, content cut from the original releases, an updated save feature, and new cinematics. The announcement is rumored to be set for March of this year.

Reportedly, Vicarious Visions (the same folks that did the Crash Bandicoot remaster) are handling this release, and it’s set for a release in Q3 of this year. The PlayStation 4 release will be timed-exclusive for one year, after which it will come to other platforms in 2019.

As with any rumor, please take this with a grain of salt. Would you like to see a remaster of Spyro the Dragon in lieu of the Skylanders nonsense? Sound off in the comments below!

    “content cut from the original releases”
    Fuuuark, this better be real (a Spyro Trilogy is inevitable either way tbh), it’s a shame we only got Stormy Ascent for Crash.

  • NukeA6

    This was long overdue.

  • sAy_YaS

    If the crash trilogy makes its way to pc then I’ll definitely hold out for this one to land there too.

  • Mr0303

    This wouldn’t be surprising given the success of the Crash Trilogy.

    I would flip my shit if true. Spyro is a family gem in my household. I will never forgive the fact that my mom bought Spyro 2 and would sneak down and play it on our PS1. Like, she had it for two weeks and never told anyone.

  • CrimsonColossus

    They’ll probably butcher the artstyle like they did Crash. Regardless, it’ll probably be fun to play.

  • As long as it comes to PC it should sell well.

  • OldPalpy

    Crash sold very well on PS4 so why shouldn’t this, does the Spryo fanbase favor PCs or something?

  • When did I imply it wouldn’t sell well on PS4? You PS4 fanboys are so paranoid. Ha!

  • OldPalpy

    “As long as….it should sell well”
    Come again or is time for some goalpost moving?

  • MT Silver

    Loved these games back in the day. Hope they come to PC too!

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    yup, i’ve been wanting a remake since PS2 days

  • No just saying it will sell well on PC. You Sonyfags can cry over there.

  • OldPalpy

    “As long as….it should sell well” in logics = If x… Then sell well” (x= be on pc)
    The negation of this claim is ¬(x= be on pc) If on x, then it Shouldn’t sell well

  • I didn’t word anything wrong you just read it wrong bitch. Can you Sony fags take all you passive aggressive worship of a plastic box to Gematsu?

  • OldPalpy

    It should sell well, hopefully it comes to PC some day and sells even more copies.
    The site’s comment section is based three things passive aggressive worship of every brand of plastic box that isn’t Ouya, anime tits and paranoid fanboy label finger pointing.

  • OldPalpy

    I get this but do you really think that’s worth the effort considering his replies?

  • Riosine

    well, I elaborated further to make sure what I typed was comprehensible, I could have written 2 lines of symbols and only mathematicians would have understood

    And if telling someon else to rewrite something over a misunderstatement is not being zealot then I dunno why people call themselves fanboys so often here

  • OldPalpy

    Yes it was comprehensible. When did I tell him to rewrite the post or am I misunderstanding you here?

  • SLoWMoTIoN🥑

    If Crash doesn’t happen this year then RIP.

  • Riosine

    You did told him something similar to rewrite in the goalpost picture “If you can explain or admit you simply phrased the post wrong” I mean it implies there is a correct form of the initial statement and accepting yours initial statement to be wrong kinds rewrites it to the correct new form Which is the you had in your head at that time.

    So I just comphressed all that thing to just Rewrite your post because it has the same meaning

  • Jack Thompson

    This is likely going to be an aesthetic disaster. Prepare for Spyro to look like this in an attempt to bring his design inline with his modern one.

  • It has already been revealed that Crash remaster is coming to PC and Switch. So this is a no brainer.

  • You forgot the forth thing. Me! As I am the Gate Keeper!

  • OldPalpy

    Even if the meanings are similar the contexts have been changed with rewrite sounding harsher as it implies I want him to go back and alter his post which I’d never do. It can be compressed with the same amount of words: “rewrite your post” versus “admit your fault” .

  • OldPalpy

    You should keep an eye out more for those post copying bots.

  • SLoWMoTIoN🥑

    Confirmed where?

  • They have a half life lol.

  • Some furf

    Rumour, via Kotaku.
    Is this really the standard you set for yourself, Niche Gamer?

  • OldPalpy

    Yeah once they get past 2.2 of it they just vanish off the face of the web.

  • I hope Crash Team Racing follows at some point.

  • Snorlaxation

    It’s about damn time.

  • MusouTensei

    Couldn’t care less about Crash, but a proper Spyro Trilogy remaster I think I would get.
