Spyro: Reignited Trilogy Announced for PS4 and Xbox One

With the huge success of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Activision decided to release another package of remastered classics centered around the PlayStation hero, Spyro. The gaming company announced today that Spyro: Reignited Trilogy will contain updated versions of the first three Spyro The Dragon games. Included will be 1998's Spyro the Dragon, 1999's Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage also known as Gateway to Glimmer in Europe and Australia, and 2000's Spyro: Year of the Dragon. Spyro: Reignited Trilogy will release on September 21st and will be priced at $40.

Remade From The Ground Up

The three games that are included were all initially developed by Insomniac Games, but the Activision subsidiary Toys for Bob is developing the updates. The games are being completely remade from the ground up for both the PS4 and Xbox One. Toys for Bob has worked on the Spyro franchise for a number of years now. The studio was involved with the first Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure and various other installments in the popular toys-to-life series. Activision's hand was pretty much forced for the announcement following a series of rumors and a very recent retailer leak.

According to Activision, Spyro: Reignited Trilogy's original three games are mapped faithfully in the new versions. In terms of what's new for the games, fans can expect enhanced reward sequences, better-looking environments, updated controls, new lighting effects, and completely redone cinematics. Additionally, the artists have re drawn the characters with "additional flair" and the game will also have a reimagined soundtrack.

The original voice actor for both Spyro 2 and Spyro: Year of the Dragon, Tom Kenny, is coming back to play the purple protagonist yet again.  Kenny is also known for voice Spongebob in the world famous series Spongebob Square Pants.

To honor their announcement, Activision hid a cool easter egg in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Fans in North America can enter the classic Konami code ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → followed by Square at the Crash 3 screen to view the Spyro: Reignited Trilogy trailer.

Gamers are excited to get their hands on a remastered Spyro. This beloved franchize is a fantastic addition to the slew of older games making their way to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Gigamax Games will keep their ear to the ground for any other exciting games coming back from the grave.


New Crash Bandicoot Rumor and Gamers Heads Spin

New Crash Bandicoot Rumor and Gamers Heads Spin

Activision is rumored to be working on a brand new Crash Bandicoot game. With the incredible success of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, selling over 2 million copies, it would be a good move for the company and for gamers. The rumor broke after people spotted the 'Spring 2018 issue of Licensing Source Book Europe'. This game may have been a breakout hit but there is still no confirmed reports by Activision on if they will be delivering a new Crash Bandicoot game in 2019. There is, however, a lot of evidence pointing to it being a reality.

Max Arguile, a manager of the merchandising company GB Eye reportedly shared some information he may not have had permission to disclose. “The new game was a huge success at retail with no marketing spend. Next year it will be going broader (Switch and PC) and there will be another game in 2019,” he said. “Activision has a five-year plan for this and GB Eye is delighted to be fully on board for all products.”

It would make sense for Activision to ride the Crash wave as long as possible. This PlayStation exclusive took the spot for the top-selling remastered collection in Sony's recent history. With the rumors causing so much excitement and the previous success of the remastered collection, it looks like Activision would be able to drop a successful new Crash Bandicoot game tomorrow without spending a dime on marketing once again. 

The Rumor Mill Keeps On Spinning

The rumors don’t stop at just a 2019 release. Those precarious parentheses in the alleged quote recorded by IGN did hold the names of two important consoles, Switch and PC. With the runaway success of the Switch and the massive popularity of PC gaming, a Crash Bandicoot game would be a wonderful addition to both consoles. Still, this is just a rumor but one that holds a lot of validity since Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was such a money maker. Opening up its audience would mean even more access to gamers wallets.

Gigamax Games will be keeping a close eye on the progression of these developments surrounding the brand new Crash Bandicoot game that could possibly be released in 2019. Be sure to check back on this page for any updates or additional news from Activision. The gaming world couldn’t believe the headlines and with good reason, they’re not confirmed. However, let’s keep those fingers crossed because a new Crash Bandicoot game would put a smile on millions of gamers faces around the world.
