Nostalgia has been a strong pull for older franchises to make comebacks, Spyro the Dragon included. We’ve seen Spyro Reignited Trilogy in action already, which contains remakes of first three games in one package. One of the biggest aspects fans fell in love with was the unique soundtrack. And during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, developer Toys For Bob announced that Stewart Copeland–the original series composer, and drummer from The Police–is returning to remaster the soundtrack.
Players will be able to switch between the remastered tracks and the original versions in the options menu, in case they get the itch to listen to the old tracks. A brand-new intro song called “Tiger Train” also channels the spirit of series’ prog-rock vibe.
Copeland himself express enthusiasm for returning to the franchise after all these years, and stated, “Creating new music for the Spyro Reignited Trilogy has been incredibly fun and nostalgic for me. Seeing how the fans loved the original series and soundtrack was a very heart-warming experience 20 years ago, and being able to revisit that fun with the new game has brought things full circle.”
Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon are all remade with high-resolution graphics and artwork for Reignited Trilogy. All games will stay true to the originals in terms of gameplay and level design while visuals will showcase Spyro in an entirely new, modern light. You can get your hands these games on September 21 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
