And the Spyro nostalgia beat doesn't end there! Franchise fans can go
down music memory lane as the Spyro Reignited Trilogy
brings a new in-game audio feature that allows players to switch
between Copeland's original and the newly remastered soundtracks.
Players can simply fly in to the "options menu" at any time during
gameplay, unleash their preferred nostalgic or scaled up groove, and
glide right back into the Spyro action without losing saved data.

"Creating new music for the Spyro Reignited Trilogy has
been incredibly fun and nostalgic for me," said Stewart Copeland,
acclaimed musician (The Police), film score writer and composer. "Seeing
how the fans loved the original series and soundtrack was a very
heart-warming experience 20 years ago, and being able to revisit that
fun with the new game has brought things full circle. I can't wait for
players to hear the new intro title track and enjoy the option to play
the remastered game to my original music when the trilogy arrives this
fall. ‘Tiger Train' includes some of my favorite themes from the
original soundtrack, which I'm sure the Spyro faithful will
appreciate!"

Spyro Reignited Trilogy developer Toys for Bob was joined
today by Stewart Copeland; key members of Insomniac Games, including Ted
Price, Brian Hastings and Brian Allgeier, as well as Tom Kenny (the
voice of Spyro) and Michael John (producer at Universal Interactive
Studios on the original Spyro trilogy) to share their favorite
moments creating and remastering one of the most beloved trilogies in
video game history. During the panel, fans were also treated to a first
look at remastered gameplay footage from Spyro™ 2: Ripto's Rage!

Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a dynamic gaming collection
that will have both veteran and new franchise fans "Spyro-ing" out of
control when it releases September 21, 2018. Players will feel the fully
remastered fire of the three original Spyro™ games that started the
