Whoah, calm down people's. Don't get your hope's up for a playable Cynder. It may become true, but as of yet we cannot jump to conclusions. Imagine if you got so worked up about playing Cynder then-BANG-no playable Cynder. For all we know, this artwork could be a lie. Young Cynder DOESN'T have wrist bands, for Flicks sake! Thats a symbol of trapped!

And, the offical name is NOT Darkest Hour, although it may be, but its not announced. If this is all true, I'm gonna flip over twenty times (although it'd cause pain to my damned feet) and do a weird dance. Spyroworld also posted the info about this BEFORE, so maybe you guys should acnolage that website. Also, as "spyro" posted on spyroworld, they said that they think that the dragon chaseing spyro is the dark master...NOT. By the looks of it, its a moth dragon, and theres a whole swarm of them in the background. So, calm down, take it easy on the whole thing. It's a bit too early for conclusions, eh?

Spyro: Darkest Hour is going to be epic, happy 10 years, Spyro!

i kinda agree with cinder came.
it would probably be time to end the spyro games, but will probably be the worst thing to happen to me!
#19 Dark_Spyro99 02:11:23 13/02/2008
Techno Spyro I totally agree with you! It probably will be the greatest Spyro!!
#18 Techno Spyro 01:10:50 13/02/2008
This is going to be sweet.
I have a Playstation 3 at my dad's house. This will definitely be Spyro's greatest game yet.

Free flight, co-op with Cynder, awesome graphics, battle with the Dark Master... what more could you ask for.
