The The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning's boxart has now appeared on several video-game shop websites such as GameStop and GAME (it was previously seen wonky here) replacing the crudely constructed placeholders. It features the same picture as the poster at Comic-Con and the game is rated as E10+ and 3+ in Europe.

I LIKE IT! This cover will appeal more to the action-game lovers than the AHT cover did. I mean, it actually looks intense, kinda like a Ratchet and Clank cover smilie. This game will be a success!

Does anyone else think the cover makes Spyro look evil?

It does look good, though. I judge games on the cover all the time.

I judge books by their cover but not games, this is okay...not what I would have hoped for.

Why show us the game cover though before a trailer, or more screens or proper story? This advertising for TLOS:ANB is all messed up!

Did you also see you can buy a Spyro back-to-school kit?

Weird...

Here: http://www.playfuls.com/gamespace_1567_The_Legend_of_Spyro_A_New_Beginning.html

says ANB is out on the 24th of Oct.

Neoseeker says the european release date is the 27th of Oct.

Wal*Mart says the game ships on the 12th.

Most sites say the game comes out on the 10th.

Nintendo Power says the console versions are in stage 2 - or development stage.

However they say the GBA and NDS versions are merely in announced stage. This dropped, the previous issue said they were in development stage then dropped back down to just announced. Maybe there are problems? They did remove the DS screens and we haven't seen the GBA screens, maybe those versions will come later or be cancelled?

Hmm...

Sorry for 4 posts in a row, but here is another new release date...the 1st of Oct.

http://www.gameseek.co.uk/pd/Cubeb9hjhtjre6c/The-Legend-of-Spyro-A-New-Beginning

AllX-Box gives us the first as the date as well.

And here...

http://gamecube.gamezone.com/gamesell/p29405.htm

Here it says the 26th:

http://www.gameswizards.com/title.aspx?code=10011768
-There is a cool fake boxart here, and the story still retains that the Dark Master will be involved.

Another two 27ths popped up, one for Ireland and this one:
http://www.choicesuk.com/Product.aspx/!826162
-With a badly made fake boxart.

Again...27th:
http://shop.gameplay.co.uk/webstore/productpage.asp?productcode=GC0877&title=the_legend_of_spyro_-_a_new_beginning


The tenth date remains most common, followed by the first, the 26th/27th dates are least common and the guide is the only thing coming supposedly on the 13th.

It does look quite intense, I like it a lot! The only thing I don't like is the design of Spyro's face, which kinda ruins it >< But I don't judge books OR games by their covers, and I'm still skeptical about this game. We'll just have to see I suppose.

Spyro's got big ol' eyes in his design. I don't like the way he looks, but his eyes remind me of Elijah Wood somehow.

As for the rest of it, it makes him look powerful and I love it!
