Spyro Reignited Trilogy Coming To PC And Nintendo Switch
We finally have our first confirmation that Spyro: Reignited Trilogy is coming to PC. The Spyro remakes originally came to PS4 and Xbox One late last year, but a PC version was always on the cards when a PC version was briefly listed on the official Spyro website.
News of the PC version comes via a Taiwanese ratings board. They’ve certified Spyro: Reignited Trilogy for release on PC, complete with box art that confirms Iron Galaxy will be handling the port duties. Iron Galaxy also worked on the PC version of Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy, so it seems fairly safe to assume we can expect some solid PC performance.
If you’ve never played a Spyro game before, they were in many ways the PlayStation answer to Nintendo 64 collectathon mascot platforms like Mario 64 and Banjo Kazooie. While Spyro’s individual levels are relatively compact compared to their N64 rivals, there’s a lot of them and a lot of variety to them. As well as the usual running, jumping and bopping enemies (mostly by breathing fire at them), there’s a lot of little mini-games and diversions. Some pretty tough boss fights at the end of each world, too. They were good games, if held back a bit by PSX hardware.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy includes the first three Spyro games remade from the ground up with massively enhanced visuals – Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon.
Whoosh, what a world we live in. Soon enough, both the Spyro trilogy and the Crash Bandicoot trilogies will be available on PC in all their 4K glory. Who’d have thought that five years ago? They’re 20-year-old games of course, so it would be difficult to say the wait has been worth it, but these remakes are a great way for new fans to get grips with these old franchises.
There’s no release date, official page or any set-in-stone announcement, so treat all of this as just rumor and hearsay for the moment. That said, ratings boards tend to be accurate sources.
