PlayStation Underground today posted a lengthy look at the Spyro 2 level Idol Springs, marking our first real look at the second game in the Spyro Reignited Trilogy.


They're joined by Peter Kavic, Nick Livingston, and Josh Nadelberg from Toys for Bob so there's plenty to hear too.

Just before the beta is due to start the first trailer for the mobile game Skylanders Ring of Heroes has been added to the game's official website:


It starts off with some pre-rendered cutscenes of a few Skylanders in their Awakened forms before showing a bit of the actual gameplay.

The video's description on Youtube also offers some details on the game:

The official Facebook page for Skylanders Ring of Heroes has announced that the beta test for the upcoming mobile game is due to start in 3 days time (the 14th of June).

Exact details of how to access the beta have not yet been made clear but it will only be available on Android, will last until the 22nd 25th of June and, according to the Korean webpage for the beta, taking part will get you a 750 Gem reward that can be used when the game officially launches a bit later in the year.

Over the past couple of weeks the Facebook page has been slowly revealing more of the "Awakened" forms of Skylanders so make sure to go check them out if you haven't already. From the looks of it the roster will be quite extensive so those reveals may be continuing for a while yet.

Hopefully this means we'll be getting actual details on the game soon.

Thanks to forum member Bifrost for the heads up on this one.

Along with the official announcement of the game comes the first trailer:


You can apparently also view it in the Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy using the old Spyro demo secret code (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Square) on the Crash 3 title screen but that hasn't worked for me just yet.

The fact sheet confirms more details:

Quote: Fact Sheet
In Spyro Reignited Trilogy, gliding through the sky and flaring up bad guys is more fun on PlayStation® 4, PlayStation® 4 Pro and the family of Xbox One devices from Microsoft, including the Xbox One X. Spyro Reignited Trilogy launches on September 21, just in time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the beloved purple dragon.

  • Gnostalgia n' More - This is the Spyro with swagger and personality that fans remember from their childhood. Returned and remastered Orb Challenges, mini-games and more make this an epic trilogy for the diehard Spyro-maniacs!
  • So Fly - The game collection is stunning, lush, and fiery! The Spyro Reignited Trilogy introduces players to a completely remastered game collection with a re-imagined cast of characters, brand-new lighting, animations, environments, and recreated cinematics - all in stunning HD.
  • Fresh Controls, Original Adventure - The trilogy breaks free from the gameplay chains of the '90s with updated controls, dramatically silky-smooth game camera handling, and full analog stick support for added flavor in this one-of-a-kind adventure.
  • Did You Hear That? - Fans of the Spyro games may recognize some familiar sounds in Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Tom Kenny, the original voice actor in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon and fan-favorite reprises his role as the voice of Spyro. The new collection also re-imagines Stewart Copeland's original soundtrack from the first three games.


Even more screenshots have been added to the Gallery. And of course don't forget to join in the discussion in the forums.

After a long wait the remake of the original trilogy that we all knew was coming has been revealed as the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Thanks to Amazon Mexico we now know that the game is coming to the PlayStation 4 on September 21st and will indeed be a remaster of Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon.

Keep in mind that the Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy had a placeholder boxart when it was announced so this is likely not the finalised boxart.

Amazon India also has an Xbox One version listed with the same release date along with a bunch of screenshots from the first game in the trilogy, including this direct comparison:

The second season of Skylanders Academy is due to hit Netflix on October 6th so it's once again time for a new trailer:


Quote:
Skylanders Academy Season Two finds our team of heroes questioning their identities and pasts. Spyro begins a search for answers about his ancestors in order to harness and understand his special powers. Meanwhile, Kaos' quest to bring evil rule to the Skylands realms accidentally unleashes a villain more powerful than anything Kaos or the Skylander warriors have ever faced. The Skylanders unite once more for the greatest showdown against evil yet - putting them all to the ultimate test.


The second season will be released all at once on the 6th of October, with the already confirmed third season probably following in late 2018. In the meantime you can check out Collider's interview with Eric Rogers, the showrunner for Skylanders Academy, to learn a bit more about the new season.

And in other news, the Lost Imaginite Mines Level Pack has finally begun turning up in Toys R Us stores in the US.

In preparation for the two new Adventure Packs, Skylanders Imaginators received an update earlier today. Along with the content for the two new Adventure Packs, Cursed Tiki Temple and Lost Imaginite Mines, it has added 250 new parts, gear and weapons for your Imaginators to use, and it's also apparently fixed several bugs (including the Heroic Challenges wipe issue).

While the vast majority of the new parts will only be able to be found in the new level packs there are several parts that you'll be able to start finding in Imaginite Chests straight away, meaning this update is more than just a tease for next month. The game will even give you a whole new set to use right away with a free chest just sitting there on the new adventure pack island in the M.A.P..

In their earnings call today Activision announced that they will not be making a new Skylanders console game this year but will instead be focusing on further supporting Skylanders Imaginators with "multiple adventure packs, new characters, and new in-game content". They did however announce that a new Skylanders mobile game is in development but did not provide any further details.

Quote: Earnings Call
In 2017, rather than releasing a new console title, we will be supporting the award winning Skylanders Imaginators with multiple adventure packs, new characters and new in-game content.

We are also excited to bring Skylanders Imaginators to Nintendo Switch as a launch title next month and we have a new Skylanders mobile game in development.


The first of this new content is arriving in March in the form of the Cursed Tiki Temple Adventure Pack which comes with Wild Storm. A second new Adventure Pack featuring RO-BOW has also been discovered with a late April release but its name still remains a mystery.

This is all fairly reminiscent of Disney's original announcement of the future of Disney Infinity before they ultimately cancelled the series just two months later. Hopefully with the Netflix show being renewed for a third season and this new mobile game in development it won't turn out the same way and we'll get a properly followed through plan for the future of the Skylanders franchise.
