Following nearly 15 years of mediocrity, Spyro the Dragon has re-entered gamers hearts by plucking on the heart strings of nostalgia with the Spyro Reignited Trilogy for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


Spyro the Dragon is a polygonal character many students will hold dear to their heart. One of the first gaming experiences many of us share is sitting next to the original Sony PlayStation with Year of the Dragon and witnessing the platformer turn into Tony Hawks Pro Skater. However, for those wishing to relive those memories, it will set you back roughly £40 for an old copy and an evening finding your old PlayStation One.


Fortunately, earlier this year we were shown the first glimpse of a Spyro the Dragon Remasterd following the success of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy as developers, Toys for Bob, got to work.


Released on the 13th November 2018 Spyro Reignited Trilogy has made its rounds, and the results are in its favour with an overall score of 82 on Metacritic. 


The game features all Three Spyro Games from the original PlayStation – Spyro The Dragon (1998), Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer (also known as Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! In the US)(1999), and Spyro: Year of the Dragon (2000).


The new games feature upgraded HD visuals, re-recorded voice acting, re-mastered music (however the old tracks are still available to use), and most importantly – the function of a fully controllable camera.


Tom Kenny, known best as the voice actor for SpongeBob SquarePants, is notable for voicing the purple dragon in the original trilogy, however he actually wasn’t present for the first game. The Dragon was originally voiced by Carlos Alazraqui, who was known as another Nickelodeon star – Rocko in Rocko’s Modern Life. However, in the updated trilogy Tom Kenny has taken over from the original star to maintain consistency.


Spyro Reignited Trilogy is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from £30.
