PlayStation champ Spyro the Dragon was a part of so many gamers’ initiations into open world platforming adventure, and he’s coming back – times three!

Having successfully given the resurrection treatment to Crash Bandicoot last year, Activision are behind this return of another ’90s gaming legend. The date? September 21. The formats? PS4 and Xbox One.

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy will feature rebuilt – not just remastered – versions of the original trilogy of Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon.

Damn, the time we spent on that first one. Ages just trying to perfect that crazy long run-up and jump on that castle. Ah…

Want to see the trailer? If you have Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on the PS4 then you can enter a slight variation on the Konami code – up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, square – on the title screen of Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped to unlock it. Or you can just save yourself a heap of bother and watch it here…
