Activision have finally revealed their plans for Spyro, and those plans are in the form of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. USA Today have the details of this new direction for the franchise.

[User Posted Image]

This is apparently the "innovative new universe" that "will bring the world of toys, video games and the Internet together in an unprecedented way" that Activision recently mentioned in their Financial Results. Which means the game is likely unrelated to any previous Spyro games and you'll be using various real world action figures from a set of more than 30 characters to interact with the game in some manner.

No platforms are mentioned specifically other than "multiple systems as well as computers, handhelds and phones" but earlier rumours suggested Wii and DS as candidates. They also give a release date of "this fall".

Thanks go to Aura24 for finding the article.

Well, this looks bad. Spyro just looks really weird. Hopefully, this will be better when its released.

WTH,
all games I know of that took that path SUCK
I thought that they were going to release something Amazing, not this that, that could end up as a massive POS.

Unless this is a red herring, this may not do all that well for Spyro after all.

My childhood was raped again.
Edit: Liking the graphical style but Spyro looks uglier than he did in TloS series.

They could really just base it off old Spyro.
Is it really that hard.

The only game Spyro looked good in IMO since the PS1 games is Dawn of the Dragon.... this is his worst.

Hopefully it ends up good.

I'm ignoring the cry babies on this one. They whined about LoS, too, and then proceeded to eat that up. They'll change their tune later on.

Honestly, I think this looks promising. The art style is interesting, they actually hired writers this time, and Hans Zimmer is doing the music. It looks, at least for now, like they've learned from the mistakes made with LoS. I don't really get the whole toy thing, but we'll just have to see how that plays out.

Classic Spyro fans wanted an original spyro game, and they got it. Now some of them already claiming about the things they don't like in the game, like Spyro's design.

Hey, that was uncalled for Aura. :/ Who's the biggest, most obnoxious Classic fan here? *raises hand* And who just unleashed a word fury on the people bashing this game? *waves hand around* At my gallery, the biggest complaints I've gotten about this game are from the LoS fans. Do we really need to set the fires already?

No worries, Aura. I'm a bit keyed up at present (really bad stuff going down on my end) and it's a bit irritating to see fans who've been whining for a new game for years flip their lids and hate on what they've wanted without even seeing it in action.

Smirf991, you still haven't explained a single thing to me. You're just wailing that I'm not thinking about...whatever it is you're saying and all you're screaming about is some alleged concept I have. What concept? I haven't written Spyro fanfic for months and this new Spyro looks like nothing I've ever seen before. Are you just butthurt because I like it and you don't, or is it because you want to like it and you're mad that I like it, too? Use words and explain this to me, please.

Spyro looks okay. Kind of cute actually, apart from those fangs.

The rest? NO. The zeppelin is pointing to the fact that there WILL be humans in this game full-on.

Thanks for killing my childhood, Activision... smilie Just tell us there aren't any humans involved.

At least the title isn't The Monster Gang.

There have been humans in a Spyro game before, Gaming. It's going to be a classic Spyro game. Remember, RR, YOTD, and ETD? They had humans in those..

Minor humans. They were big in-level, but were never major in the plot. But a zeppelin makes it look like they'll be here. I just hope they aren't...

GTG/RR and YoTD had SEMI-humans.

Talking, talking. Spinning a web of words, pale walls of dreams, between myself and all I see.

Hey, What we say now will not affect the game but how we go into the game thinking. If we think if is crap now, it Will be crap to us if we play it.
On the other hand, if he go in to it thinking it will be amazing we have the chance of being let down.
Just go into it as if you knew nothing about spyro, Then you will come out happy.

Woman, but thank you.

I'm fine with there being SOME humans, but not enough to fill a whole hub... Tell me another good platformer involving dragons as protagonists that doesn't have an overload of humans and isn't Spyro.
That's one of the things that makes it so great: it has dragons as protagonists with no major human contact, and is [at least] one of very few platformers like that.

I agree about the art style, can't wait until some concept are is found.
The art's usually really cool.
