Some news about the still officially unconfirmed Spyro DS game.

Spyro DS
Recently IGN brought to attention a certain product listed on EBGames.com as Spyro DS. It has since been sort of removed, but the page still remains with Spyro DS at the top.

As for what the game is, Jeuxpo.com has an article about Spyro DS being a Tactical RPG game, quite what that will actually mean for the gameplay I don't know. Here's a rough translation, via Babelfish, of what it actually says:

The next adventures of Spyro the Dragon will take place on Nintendo DS. However according to the first information arriving on the play, the title will not be a play of platform this time. If the kind appears still not very clear, it would seem that the gameplay title is directed towards Tactical RPG, a field where Advance Wars DS on the same machine is already awaited. Spyro DS is awaited for the end of the year.

I've no idea how credible the sources are but they might be good.

>< I hate it when games change console. What is wrong with just carrying the series on, on the PS2? It just sounds like another money-making scam.

But a spyro RPG does sound like a good idea. Shame I'll never get to play it :/.

Mmm. But Spyro's been on the GBA for quite a while so this is only really an upgrade of that path. Still a new console needed though. smilie

Though I also wonder whether there'll be another PS2/Xbox/GameCube Spyro game before the next generation arrives.

I am the evil friend of Red. HA! I laugh in her sorry face. Oh well. I guess a Spyro RPG sounds cool. I'm kinda into Spyro, but I think he kinda lost his originality and number 4 (which I played on Gamecube) was enough to put me off him for a lifetime. I guess I'm not a true Spyro fan. Back to my original point. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! GO DS!! I AM A NINTENDOID!!

'parently it's called Spyro Shadow Legacy and does indeed incorporate popular role playing game elements and introduce magic into the adventure.
