Spyro FINALLY returns to a Nintendo console after 2008's The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon for Wii.
Nintendo has sure had a lot of announcements for games this year at this year’s E3 Direct. We got 40 minutes worth of game announcements with a cute Bowser meets Doug Bowser joke at the beginning of the Direct and TWO Smash bros. FIghter Pass characters being revealed.
However, there was a huge amount of surprise announcements, for sure.
One of these surprises was seeing the Spyro: Reignited Trilogy, a game that takes up 43.86 GB of Hard Drive space on a Xbox One S (Well, when installed Digitally anyways), is coming to the Nintendo Switch and is RELEASING on September 3rd, 2019.
The package contains remastered versions of Spyro The Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, and Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon. All have been given a graphical overhaul. The enemies, characters, etc. all look much cleaner, and in some cases more menacing or funnier, then before. Infamous (get it?) glitches including Spooky Swamp’s Lost Gem Glitch from Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon (which has locked me and my brother out of 100% Completion TWICE – once a PS1 we owned years ago, and once again on digitally via the PS3.) seem to be fixed as far as I know.
There plenty of cheat codes you can use in these games, many of which are carried over from the original versions of these 3 games, but there are some new ones thrown in there as well. Combine these with the Switch’s video and screenshot capturing functions for maximum hilarity.
NOTE: The following info was generously documented by IGN. Their article and the images on these cheats can be found here, and the cheats are described as follows:
You have your standard 99 Lives code. There’s also the Spyro 2 exclusive Superflame toggle code which works for ALL 3 save files for that game. There’s also a Big Head code for when you wanna make spyro’s cocky attitude in Spyro one and his ego in that game’s 117% ending “go to his head,” so to speak, and make him look like a character out of NBA Jame or NBA Playgrounds. (hehehehe…) You can also use a few codes to make his wings small as well as his head. They can stack, mind you. You can also use a cheat (In Spyro 1 remastered) that gives you access to the Sunglasses used by Spyro in the 117% ending of Spyro 1. That can also stack with the big/small head and tiny wings cheats, but that code also overwrites the Flat Spyro cheat. The Retro-themed Spyro code, however, works with the other codes. There’s also a set of color change codes and a squid skateboard code as well. Images (Also on the IGN article) of some of these cheats are included below.
Currently, it’s not known as to whether or not the game will fit on a Switch cart, if it’ll be available physically, or the price or file size.
Once more information on these things is unveiled, a follow-up article will follow rather quickly (hopefully soon). If there’s any dumb stuff that happens (Download 2/3rds of the game just like with the PS4 and Xbox One versions), I will superflame so much in utter frustration.
