Spyro: Reignited Trilogy was one of the most hotly anticipated games of the year before it was even announced. Now, we’ve finally gotten our first look at some extended gameplay of the PS4 and Xbox One title.
The video, which you can watch above, showcases three levels from the upcoming remaster. First up is Toasty, a boss level from the original Spyro the Dragon. Next you can see some footage of Tree Tops, another level from the first game. Finally, there’s gameplay of a Speedway level named Sunny Flight–this is also from the original game, meaning we’re yet to see any substantial footage from Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage (Gateway to Glimmer in Europe and Australia) or Spyro: Year of the Dragon.
While the games have been improved visually, the layouts of each world has remained the same as in the original games, including the locations of enemies, gems, and items. Actor Tom Kenny, who voiced Spyro in the second and third games in the series, returns to voice the character in all three this time around after every line was re-recorded. The games’ soundtracks have also been spruced up, though Activision would not confirm whether original composer Stewart Copeland was involved in the remaster trilogy.
The games come to PS4 and Xbox One on September 21, approximately 20 years since the release of the first game. In other ’90s platformer news, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is getting a brand new level named Future Tense. It’s included in all versions of the game going forward, starting June 26, when existing owners of the remaster on PS4 will receive a free update containing the level.
