Spyro Reignited Trilogy

Best Buy has now posted the boxart for Spyro Reignited Trilogy. As shown on the packaging image, a download requirement notice is included.

This actually isn’t surprising given previous information. On other platforms, Spyro Reignited Trilogy


Update (2/11): GameStop Germany has now removed the listing. Make of that what you will.

Original (2/10): A listing has appeared on GameStop Germany for a Switch version of Spyro Reignited Trilogy. The retailer has an August 16 release date, though it could be a placeholder. We should also warn that the listing itself isn’t confirmation of an upcoming announcement.

In the past, Spyro Reignited Trilogy has been listed for Switch in a couple of places, including the Nintendo UK store and Spyro UK website. However, Toys For Bob producer Peter Kavic indicated at the end of last year that he hadn’t seen an attempt to get the games up and running on the console.

Thanks to Sina for the tip. 

During a recent episode of the Game Informer Show, Toys For Bob producer Peter Kavic and art director Josh Nadelberg participated in an interview for Spyro Reignited Trilogy. The two were asked if it’ll be appearing on other systems, to which Kavic said the team’s “focus was on PS4 and Xbox One.” When specifically asked about Switch and if it could run on the platform, Kavic indicated that he’s “yet to even see it tried.”

Here’s the full exchange:

Even though the US website for Spyro the Dragon only lists the upcoming Reignited Trilogy for PlayStation and Xbox, the UK site also features PC and Switch. Strangely, the Switch is even listed twice!

Spyro the Dragon has a release date of September 21, 2018, for PlayStation and Xbox. Obviously, there’s no release date set for the unannounced Switch version, assuming it’s real.

Original: Over on the Nintendo UK store, a listing has appeared for Spyro Reignited Trilogy on Switch. You can see the page right here.

Quite honestly, we would have to assume that this is a mistake. While Spyro Reignited Trilogy could come to Switch in the future, we don’t believe this listing is a confirmation – otherwise Activision would have announced a Switch version today. Stranger things have happened though, and we’ll let you know if something more concrete results from the listing.

Following many leaks and rumors, Activision unveiled Spyro Reignited Trilogy today. The thing is, a Switch version has not been announced at this time.

IGN did speak to developer Toys for Bob about Spyro Reignited Trilogy, and asked about a Switch release. Unfortunately, they could not comment. Make of that what you will.
