Suspicious Switch Listing Appears For Spyro The Dragon Reignited Trilogy

by Joey Thurmond on Apr 05, 2018 at 03:20 PM

After a deluge of rumors and leaks of screenshots spilled everywhere this morning, the original Spyro The Dragon trilogy by Insomniac Games was officially announced today as the Reignited Trilogy. It's currently being developed by Toys For Bob, and the collection is receiving entirely remade assets, new renditions of Stewart Copelands' scores, and far more once it launches on September 21 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, video game news guru Nibel has relayed that "Spyro The Dragon Remastered"  was on the Nintendo UK Store, which was taken down minutes ago as of the writing of this article.

Visitors will notice the description is not complete, and since the website is run by a third-party vendor, the listing may have been made in the rash assumption that the platform was already confirmed with the collection's announcement.

We reached out to Activision and Toys For Bob for comment on this rumor, to which we received a response confirming there's nothing to announce at this time: "Everything on the record, including platforms, is in the [press] release."

Our Take
Considering that Toys For Bob is currently handling the Switch port for Crash Bandicoot: N'Sane Trilogy, we think the team has its paws too full at the moment. While Vicarious Visions is handling the upcoming PC and Xbox One ports of the marsupial's adventures, perhaps they will pat Toys For Bob on the back by handling a Spyro The Dragon Switch port in turn. Regardless, the financial success of the Crash trilogy would make restricting Spyro to the PS4 and Xbox One foolish. I'm confident an announcement for the Switch (and PC!) will be announced before, at, or soon after Nintendo's Direct presentation at this year's E3.
