Spyro Wiki

In the Spyro Reignited Trilogy, gameplay and environment, changes were made as a result of creative decisions. Every single character, including Spyro and Sparx, has also been given upgraded looks.

Stephan Vankov, audio head at Toys for Bob remastered the soundtrack, adding dynamism to the tracks. For example, if Spyro is charging, bass and percussion is added to increase tension, and if Spyro is standing still, the music fades out and the bass and percussion becomes a lot less prominent. Dynamic music can be turned on and off. Stewart Copeland, the original composer of the trilogy assisted Stephan with the soundtrack, and the original soundtrack can be switched to as an option. For Spyro the Dragon, the NTSC version of High Caves is used. For Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, the NTSC version of Ripto's Arena's music is used. For Spyro: Year of the Dragon, the Greatest Hits versions of Mushroom Speedway, The Farley/skateboarding minigame in Enchanted Towers, Country Speedway, Evening Lake, Lost Fleet, Honey Speedway, Crystal Islands, Haunted Tomb, and Dino Mines are used.

None of the original game menues, set in Magic Crafters, Skelos Badlands and Fireworks Factory respectively, are kept in Reignited Trilogy, nor is the animated Spyro-model, Instead we see a purple background with the 3 game titles and a different 2D Spyro model for each.

After finishing each game, the camera will not pan over each different homeworld and level like in the original game. Instead there will be a movie-like ending credits roll with the occassional concept art of Spyro "finding his path".

The map option from Ripto's Rage! is available in all three games.

Spyro is voiced by Carlos Alazraqui in the first game, before he was replaced with Tom Kenny on future entries as feedback said that Spyro sounded too 'cocky' and 'bratty'. In the Reignited Trilogy, Spyro is voiced by Tom Kenny, keeping his voice consistent between the three games.

Elora, Zoe and Moneybags are respectively voiced by Melissa Disney, Mary Linda Phillips and Milton James in the second game; in the third game, Carolyn Lawrence voices both Elora and Zoe, and Moneybags is voiced by Neil Ross. Consequently, they have different sounding voices (accent in Moneybags' case) in the second game than they have in the third game. In the Reignited Trilogy they are voiced by Cassandra Lee Morris, Catherine Taber and J.B. Blanc respectively, keeping their voices (and Moneybags' accent) consistent between the two games.

Some of the intros and outros in the Ripto's Rage! portion of the game have had minor changes made to them.

In the games you can enter cheat code to cheat during gameplay or add changes to Spyro, such as his change in scale colors or adding sunglasses. However, whereas these were likely not intended for the original games, Reignited has them intentionally added to the game, including some completely new codes.

On the 12th of March 2019, following criticism following initial release, the game was given subtitles for each cutscene in the game.[1]
