With Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy having been a huge success, Activision is launching another new remaster package soon involving another popular PS1 series, Spyro. The company today announced Spyro: Reignited Trilogy, which features updated versions of the first three Spyro games: 1998's Spyro the Dragon, 1999's Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage (Gateway to Glimmer in Europe and Australia), and 2000's Spyro: Year of the Dragon. Reignited releases on September 21, priced at $40 in the United States.

The included games were originally developed by Insomniac Games, but the Activision subsidiary Toys for Bob is handling the remasters. They are being made "from the ground up" for PS4 and Xbox One. Toys for Bob has a long history with the Spyro franchise, as the studio released the first Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure game and other installments in the toys-to-life series. The news comes after previous rumors and a very recent retailer leak.

All of the levels from the original three games are "mapped faithfully," Activision says; you can see a screenshot comparison here. As for what's new, Activision said there are "enhanced reward sequences," better-looking environments, updated controls, new lighting effects, and "recreated" cinematics. Additionally, the characters have been "creatively re-imagined with additional flair." The game will feature a "re-imagining" of Stewart Copeland's original soundtracks.

Voice actor Tom Kenny, who originally voiced Spyro in Spyro 2 and Year of the Dragon, is coming back to voice the dragon yet again. Carlos Alazraqui voiced Spyro in the first game. It's not immediately clear if Kenny is taking over in the remaster package. Kenny is perhaps best known for voicing SpongeBob Squarepants.

To celebrate this announcement, Activision tucked a cool Easter egg into the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.
