The Spyro Reignited Trilogy is only a couple of months away from release, folks. And while we’ve had the chance to play a few levels for ourselves, PlayStation has just revealed some fresh new content for you to froth over.
The PlayStation Underground video shows a level called Idol Springs, which is part of the second Spyro game and showcases varied gameplay across platforming, puzzle solving, and exploration. You can suss out the footage for yourself below.
Looking schmick, no? My favourite part is that all the builders talk like they’re from New York.
The most incredible part of this remake is just how much the developer, Toys for Bob, had to recreate from scratch because they didn’t have access to a lot of the original assets. Instead, they built a tool called SpyroScope which allowed them to extract certain information from the original games.
“We have to have accuracy as well, it can’t just be about the aesthetic feels,” senior producer, Peter Kavic, told PEDESTRIAN.TV at an E3 demo. “If you hit the jump button, it has to feel right, it has to feel like how you remember it. So the challenge we faced was, we didn’t have the data from the original game to make it from, so it wasn’t taking and polishing some existing assets, we had to start from scratch.”
The Spyro Reignited Trilogy will hit PS4 and Xbox One on the 21st of September. You can see some more gameplay from our recent playthrough below.
