Spyro The Dragon Remaster announcement TOMORROW? Release date, trailer news INCOMING?
It looks like we could be about to hear more news about the rumoured Spyro the Dragon remake coming from Activision tomorrow.The information comes from redditor B4DASS – the same user that correctly predicted the Black Ops IIII information before it was formally revealed last week. That means it’s clear that B4DASS has some inside links with Activision – the same publisher apparently working on the Spyro the Dragon remastered trilogy.Information is quite thin on the ground, however. The post literally states “Spyro The Dragon: Treasure Trilogy to be announced tomorrow at 1PMPST” with text underneath reading ‘Info from inside sources at Activision’.The post does note that the game may be called Spyro the Dragon: Treasure Trilogy, which is quite a nice name for the three collected original games.We may yet see a playable version of the game become available in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, if our reports here are to be believed. We expect to hear more on the game tonight, at roughly 8pm UK time if the information is correct.We’ll report on more as it breaks.

This comes as rumours about a Spyro the Dragon remaster coming to PS4 refuse to go away.After the success of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on PS4, it makes sense for Activision to pursue the nostalgia factor with ground-up remakes of more popular PSOne titles.The most recent whispers about a remake of the original trilogy coming to PS4 come from some Twitter sleuths that have managed to find a Twitter account with the handle @SpyroTheDragon, which appears to be registered to an Activision address in February 2018.The Twitter account in question is currently locked, meaning users on the social media site can’t interact with the account or collect any significant information from it.The username attributed to the account is listed as Falcon McBob, which is interesting: Activision has reportedly had a voiceover project in development for the last year that goes by codename Falcon.That could align quite nicely with the rumoured remake of the original Spyro trilogy… but it’s a pretty thin connection at this point.This isn’t the only information we have pointing to the potential trilogy being remade, however.A Twitter user known as BetaM – a well-known and trusted figure in the speed-running community – has dug into the code of Activision’s Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and found what appears to be demo code for Spyro the Dragon in there.There doesn’t appear to be any way to access the demo (yet…) but it’s worth noting that the original Crash games used to include demos of Spyro games if you input certain cheat codes on the main menu.Whether a patch in the future will let owners of the N. Sane Trilogy boot up the demo remains to be seen – either way, this does add more fuel to the fire that Activision has something Spyro-related up its sleeve .Activision has already mentioned it would be keen to produce more remasters in the future thanks to the success of Crash’s return to glory, so if the publisher is using Crash as a way to springboard to Spyro, that would be quite nice.

This all comes after Kotaku UK reported that a Spyro the Dragon Trilogy Remaster will be announced in March 2018 and released in Q3 2018.Kotaku reports that:The trilogy remaster will, much like the highly successful Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, feature new assets, lighting, animations and cinematics, as well as a remastered soundtrack. It will also feature updates to the save feature, much like occurred in the Crash remaster (which replaced the original games’ password feature with something much more user friendly). The remaster will include Spyro the Dragon, Ripto’s Rage!, and Year of the Dragon, and there is the tantalising promise of some content cut from the original releases of those games.The article continues to detail that the game may well be released in September, in order to align with the 20h anniversary of Spyro the Dragon, and suggests the game will have a one-year exclusivity period for PS4 before migrating to other consoles.We’ll reveal more news as it becomes apparent.
