I've completed work on my brand new walkthrough for Spyro: Shadow Legacy.

It walks you through the entire game from start to end and all the stuff inbetween. All items, eggs, relics, crystals and creatures are listed and is viewable in both the basic TXT format or an HTML format.

I've finally finished redoing the Spyro: Fusion (Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy) section which for the most part looks better than before. Mostly the walkthrough though, which I've finally brought up-to-date.

In other site related updates, I've added the first Spyro mobile game to the Other Games section and added a Books section to Shadow Legacy. Oh, and of course I added a The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning section too.

Welcome to the brand new home for the site, www.darkspyro.net. Finally moved from the free hosts that have been vanishing as soon as we're established on them, but we're going to be staying at this .net location for quite a while now.

Since we went offline on the 28th of last month, I've finally managed to complete my Season of Flame guide along with a map showing the locations of the chests and keys as well as all of the eight items to flame/freeze/electricute in each level. I've also gone over a few of the older guides and spruced 'em up a little, there's not much new in them, but still. The Character Guide additions were put on hold just before the site went offline, but I'm going to start doing that again from Wednesday onwards. Oh, and a new small website has been setup to host all of my guides, see that at darkFAQs.

Some Spyro reviews are in, and it's not looking too good for Shadow Legacy if you're to believe them. IGN give it a 4/10, Eurogamer also gave it the same, Nintendo Power have apparently given it a 6.5/10 and Planet Gamecube gave it a 5.5/10. Check out some user reviews at GameFAQs and GameSpot as well to see their views.

Five months on and I've finally finished off putting the Spyro the Dragon set of characters (88 in total), you can now find every single dragon in the Character Guide. Just another ten games to go... Oh, and I've added a thing on the right of the main page for some reason. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

In other news, the official website has been updated to promote Shadow Legacy, it doesn't really have anything new that we didn't already know, but there's a nicer link to the newest of the videos there.

VUGames have recently added a trailer to their Shadow Legacy section which shows the game's fighting, both with the small creatures in the game and the larger one that has appeared in several screenshots. It also shows the touch-screen features of the game with attacks being made after drawing a certain shape. Thanks to Captain Spyro for finding this one.

IGN has it as well as a short preview. They also have some screens that you may have missed if you didn't read the comments for the previous news post. Cheers Mozepy and Neal.

Fifteen new screens have appeared on the VUGames website here. What's more it seems that the game will feature a new enemy, an evil wizard. And it's been rated E, which suggests that the game is now finished. Still no more news on a release date though, but the 18th of October still looks possible.

Scratch that, there's sixteen new screens. You'll find the extra one here it is 'there' but isn't on the screenshots rosta.

And some general bug fixes around the place, hopefully all images should now work that didn't before (Fusion title screens for example) and a slight behind the scenes change to the comments system to prevent some problems to do with urls.

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.

After a rumour of a Spyro DS game, it's been just about confirmed in a press release from Vivendi mainly about their McDonalds promotion. It's right at the bottom after some stuff about Crash Tag Team Racing.

As previously posted, the game will indeed be more RPG like then other games and be arriving this Autumn. Something about introducing magic too... More substantial news at E3 about Spyro: Shadow Legacy, hopefully.

This fall the popular Spyro video game franchise will expand to include Spyro Shadow Legacy on Nintendo DS where for the first time ever the franchise will incorporate popular role playing game elements and introduce magic into the adventure.

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.
