Spyro's Remastered Graphics Showcased In Reignited Trilogy Images
Here's what kind of visual enhancements Reignited Trilogy brings to the table.
After rumors and leaks, Activision has finally confirmed a remastered version of the original three Spyro the Dragon games is coming. Among the improvements that Spyro Reignited Trilogy boasts are improved graphics, and along with a trailer, we've gotten some comparison screenshots that serve to highlight just how much better this new version looks.
Activision's announcement states the Trilogy features "scaled-up HD graphics" where the more than 100 levels have been "mapped faithfully from the originals, only now re-imagined with modern mechanics to give fans an excellent gaming experience." In terms of visuals, this is described as a "completely remastered" collection with "re-imagined cast of characters, brand-new lighting, animations, environments, and recreated cinematics."
You can see for yourself in the images below just what that translates into. Spyro himself is much more detailed, but it's the improvements to the environments themselves that stand out the most. It looks to be a major upgrade.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy releases for PS4 and Xbox One on September 21. That roughly coincides with the original release of the first Spyro, which debuted back in 1998. It consists of that original game, Spyro the Dragon, along with its two follow-ups: Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage (Gateway to Glimmer in Europe and Australia) and Spyro: Year of the Dragon.
