Vivendi have finally officially announced the game Spyro: Shadow Legacy for the Nintendo DS, though Amaze Entertainment are the people actually responsible for developing the game.

Shadow Legacy will take use of the DS's touchscreen by way of inputting spells which are shapes and symbols. The second screen is shows the actual view of Spyro moving around. Wireless also plays a part too allowing you to trade collectable creatures. The game will also feature a levelling system, the more enemies you defeat, the more skill points you get to put to Spyro's strength and abilities, you'll also be able to put your experience towards building Spyro's collection of magical powers and martial arts combat abilities. The game also reportedly focuses a lot more on the story and development of characters then any previous Spyro game.

Experience the magic, live the adventure! Spyro returns home to the dragon realms to find them in ruins. He soon discovers that a powerful magic force has banished everyone to the mysterious Shadow Realm. Spyro must master the use of magic and hone his skills - take touch-screen control of the fire-breathing dragon and save the day!

The short video of the game in action on GameSpot shows an almost familiar view of play on the top screen with the camera following Spyro from overhead, though it also seems a more RPG like style of view then before. Here are three screen captures from that video:

Storyline from Nintendo. Also thanks to Mozepy for finding the IGN, MyGame and GameSpot articles.

In other news, I've finally finished adding the pictures to the Spyro the Dragon walkthrough and altered the Character Guide a little as well as finishing off another page of dragon profiles from Spyro the Dragon. Unfortunately this will be the last content update until the end of June, due to other commitments. Hope to bring you more Shadow Legacy news before then though.

They have images of the 4 miniature console spyro games at McDonald's website, in a slideshow form. Go to:

Hope this is something new, that you didn't know about before!!!

I hadn't actually seen a picture of those, so thanks for that.

I've lightened the small screenshots from Shadow Legacy as well as added the story from the Nintendo site for this game to this news article.

I'm looking forward to Spyro Shadow Legacy. I'm sure it will be better than the other Spyro games.

I just submitted a Shadow Legacy profile to Neoseeker, but its only in queue. I used the pics off your site, i realize I should have asked permission, but I was having massive problems with my photo editing programs, and needed to finish the game profile. I just thought you'd like to know!
