In a message on the official Activision Blog, Paul Yan of Toys for Bob has confirmed that the release of the Spyro Reignited Trilogy has been delayed by two months to November 13th.

Quote: Paul Yan
Everyone here at Toys for Bob is so proud to be reigniting the original Spyro trilogy after all these years. We're deeply committed to getting these games right, so we’ve decided to move the release date of Spyro Reignited Trilogy to November 13, 2018. I really hoped that you would be rescuing dragons and scorching Rhynocs sooner, but the Trilogy needs more love and care. In November when you’re exploring the Dragon Realms, Avalar and the Forgotten Worlds, we know you’ll agree the extra time was worth the wait.


In the meantime we'll be getting our first proper look at the Year of the Dragon remaster in action next week as they're taking a playable demo featuring it to Gamescom (August 21-25).

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:

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.

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:
