Rumor no more as Spyro Reignited Trilogy has been announced and will be the nice big remastered package of these original games for us all. Most of the rumors we had heard so far have been about spot on, except that the games are being remastered by Toys For Bob instead. It will house the first three Spyro titles all rebuilt from the ground up and coming at us in the HD quality that the PS4 and Xbox One can currently push out there. It is not mentioned directly by Activision, but I am guessing it will be 1080p for the base models of the consoles and 4K for the Pro and X versions of the systems. I guess we will all find out soon or on September 21st when the bundle finally hits our homes. Most likely before, but we can guarantee that we will know on the release date at the latest.
Just like the recent Crash Bandicoot, all of the 100+ levels in Spyro Reignited Trilogy will look close to the originals just with the higher textures and models being used. You can see them somewhat in action below as the announcement trailer does show some comparisons. More or less, it is exactly what you can imagine given the huge popularity of the IP and how well the Crash remaster was handled. Have a look for yourself just below. Or if you want a real treat, spin up the N. Sane Trilogy and go the to the Crash 3 title screen. Once there put in the iconic code of ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → square and then see the same trailer play on the PS4 there. Not the biggest of treats I guess, but it is something to do.
