While Spyro Reignited Trilogy won't make its intended September release date, the collection of remastered PlayStation classics was available to play at Gamescom this year, and it's shaping up quite well so far. Developer Toys for Bob says it needs just a little more time to make sure the games are done right, and are now promising the trilogy will be released on PS4 and Xbox One on November 13. In the footage above you can get a taste of what's in store later this fall.
The first segment of the video shows off Stone Hill. The grassy yards and castle interiors will look familiar to Spyro fans as it was the setting of the first game's opening and ending sequences. It's also there that Spyro rescues the dragon Astor, one of many friendly faces he'll free during the course of his adventure.
Up next is the Idol Springs stage from Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage, where Spyro has to go up against statues come to life, but the second half of the video is almost entirely footage from Spyro: Year Of The Dragon's Sunny Villa stage. This is a large and diverse stage with plenty to find and do, including skateboarding on obstacle courses and makeshift half pipes.
To get a little more insight into all the work that's gone into remastering these stages, be sure to check out our interview with some of the game's developers, including Toys for Bob co-studio head, Paul Yan, and art director, Josh Nadelberg. Famed voice actor Tom Kenny and legendary member of The Police, Stewart Copeland, also chime in on their involvement in the game, and what it means to revisit their original work after all these years.
