Like other platforms, we knew that the physical version of Spyro Reignited Trilogy would require an additional download on Switch. It’s now been made clear that the back of the box mentions 10GB, but the final install size is 8.7GB.

Keep in mind that the download here is absolutely mandatory. If you try launching the physical version of Spyro Reignited Trilogy without the update, you won’t be able to play. Even with airplane mode enabled, a prompt will appear stating that a software update is required.

In a blog post detailing future plans for Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, which largely covers the new Grand Prix, Activision revealed that it will be adding microtransactions to the game.

Players will be able to purchase Wumpa Coin bundles starting in early August. Activision says this is optional, and it “won’t change the game’s core mechanics – players will still earn Wumpa Coins by playing the game in any mode, just as before.”

Here’s the full rundown on what’s to come for Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled:

IGN has an early look at the Back N. Time Grand Prix in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, which starts on August 2. Have a look at the footage below.

Yesterday, Activision began taking pre-orders for Spyro Reignited Trilogy. The eShop listing indicated that the collection would be a 6.3GB download on Switch. However, the situation is a bit more complicated than that.

According to those who accessed information from Nintendo’s servers, a day-one update is in the works. The 8.7GB will push the total file size to around 15GB. Some felt that the original 6.3GB amount was a bit too small given what we saw on other platforms, so perhaps that update data includes one of the three games in Spyro Reignited Trilogy.


The second Grand Prix is starting soon in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. Back N. Time starts on August 2, which will feature baby versions of Crash and Coco plus other playable characters, the Probulot 2000 kart, and more.

You can see everything that’s on the way above. Remember, it’s all free.

Here’s a trailer

Activision is now taking pre-orders for Spyro Reignited Trilogy on the Switch eShop. If you take advantage of the option, you can purchase the collection in advance and download the required data ahead of time.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy releases for Switch on September 3. It’ll take up 6.2GB digitally. Since Activision isn’t including every game on the cartridge, the physical version will also have a separate download, though it’s unclear how large it will be.
