The upcoming remaster of the first three Spyro the Dragon games will let players swap between the original and remastered soundtrack during gameplay.
Developers Toys For Bob revealed the news during the “Spyro: Reigniting a Legend” panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
As well as the new soundtrack, original composer Stewart Copeland of 80’s rock band The Police will provide a new theme for the game titled “Tiger Train”.
Tiger Train will incorporate Copeland’s personal favourite themes from his original legendary soundtrack for the PS1 versions of the original trilogy.
The system will operate similarly to the one seen in the Special Editions of the Monkey Island games which swaps tracks whilst in-game. The switch will be found in the options menu of Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
The Activision published set of remakes will land on Playstation 4 and Xbox One this September 21st. This will mark the return of Spyro after a hiatus of 11 years, if you don’t count the popular NFC figure series Skylanders.
However, it has been all but confirmed that the remastered trilogy will be coming to PC and Nintendo Switch at a later date. The UK website for the Reignited Trilogy featured a drop-down menu that included all platforms before being changed.
We are yet to hear a confirmation, but this would make sense considering the fairly similar platform distribution for Crash N. Sane Trilogy, which was also published by Activision.
