The lights are on
A cynic might say that the reason that Spyro and his crew have been transformed into tiny toys is so that Activision can sell those figurines at retail and make a mint. Wouldn't you know that there's also an in-game explanation behind it all, too. Watch this new video to see how it all fits together. It's official canon, too, and not expanded-universe nonsense.
The CG trailer doesn't highlight how the game actually looks or plays, but it does set up the battle between Spyro and pals and Chaos' evil forces. If you're skeptical, all you need to know is that the trailer has a golem who barfs up molten lava. Yes, I have a lot of growing up to do.
Anyway, the clip culminates with a kid finding the toys heroes and using them to play the game. You're forgiven if you close the window the second you see live action. The rest is pretty fun though.

THAT GUY OWES ME FIVE DOLLARS!!l
Hmmm... you know, that wasn't half bad... But its not the Spyro I remember.
hahah "that guy owes me five dollars!" that was pretty funny
Really? They could of just put the energy they used to create this gimmick, into making another quality Spyro game.
Must...resist...urge to...aaaargh-*** YOU, ACTIVISION!!
Certainly going out on a limb with this formula... I'm not in touch with the success of marketing targeted towards kids these days, but this just feels like something that may have worked 5-10 years ago... not now.
I wish they'd just leave Spyro out of it.
What the *** ARE THEY DOING?!!!
That's not the Spyro I remember... :'(
There goes the image of a perfect childhood game-serie...
I actually don't think it looks too bad. But I still don't think it should be a Spyro game. They're just using Spyro to get people's attention. It would probably fail without him, even though it doesn't look anything like him.....
