Finished The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night and wondering when you're going to find out what happens next? Well wonder no longer. Velvet Octopus, involved with the upcoming Legend of Spyro film, have posted the first information about the third entry to the trilogy.

Quote:
  • First appearance on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
  • Epic culmination of "Legend of Spyro" storyline Spyro finally faces the Dark Master
  • Fly at any time - first free flight in a Spyro game
  • Co-op play with Cynder (female dragon)
  • Global release Oct/Nov 2008


Other platforms aren't mentioned but I wouldn't cross them out just yet.

And even though this will wrap up the Legend of Spyro story they also go on to mention that annual releases of Spyro on all major gaming platforms in 2009 and beyond are planned.

UPDATE: Called "Legend of Spyro: Darkest Hour"? EBgames, they list PS3, PS2, Wii, Xbox 360 and DS versions of the game.

Thanks go to Vitani333 on SpyroForum and Neal from SpyroWorld.

Aw, that's brilliant news smilie!

I guess it's finally time for the grande finale!

I think that's wicked how Spyro's going to be able to get airborne! It's about time Spyro could have free flight in levels smilie!

And now it's time for the final confrontation between Spyro and Dark Master dun dun duuuun...! Cannae wait *is excited* smilie!

I only hope it comes out on the PS2 as well.

Co-op play with Cynder. Does that mean you can play as Cynder as well?

Shut up. You sound like the type of person that wants to create a Mary Sue for Spyro to fall in love with in a random fanfiction. >.>

Besides, Cynder's cool for a female dragon; we came to a conclusion in The Eternal Night that she needed more growth, and the fact that she's going to be used as a co-op character proves that she will GET that growth. Surely something like THAT would change your mind over how "dull" you think she is?

"First appearance on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360"

UGH! Wii please!

"Epic culmination of "Legend of Spyro" storyline Spyro finally faces the Dark Master"

Wasn't his revival fully prevented in TEN or something? Plothole very much?

"Fly at any time - first free flight in a Spyro game"

NO! JUST NO! MAJOR EPIC PHAIL! Spyro can't/sucks at flying. This is one of the MAJOR defining traits of the purple dragon! Remove it and you remove one of the main points that make him different from the generic hero dragon!

"Co-op play with Cynder (female dragon)"

Only good point of this announcement.

"Global release Oct/Nov 2008"

Whatever.

---

I SOOOOO hope that this is a fake. Frankly. I'm hoping for it. They can't kill Spyro anew after getting this far. I don't want a second Enter The Dragonfly this soon!

Oh, I just realized what the statement about the consoles means! *headdesk* What they are saying is not that it is only going to be available for PS3 and XBox360, but that this is the first time a Spyro game has appeared on either of these platforms. Gads, why did that take so long? smilie

Anyways, back to fangirling for me. *squee!*

"First appearance on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360"

The graphics better be PS3/Xbox 360 worthy; I'm tired of the PS2's graphics. They're starting to look like really, really well colored pictures compared to the PS3's. [User Posted Image]

"Epic culmination of "Legend of Spyro" storyline Spyro finally faces the Dark Master"

Mephiles! *shot*

"Fly at any time - first free flight in a Spyro game"

AWESOME.

"Co-op play with Cynder (female dragon)"

Bit of a bad idea to me since they didn't do that for TEN ( it would've been weird if it were for ANB ).

"Global release Oct/Nov 2008"

That's around the same time the third book in the Inheritence Cycle comes out! @_@

Quite a redundant title.

  • First off, uh-duh. Second off, for the sake of awesome main villain is pawn clichés, he better not be the final boss.
  • By fly any time you mean "Flying will now also be added on to breath/elemental moves, and will sap up a hopefully larger magic meter." Also, flying in this game is terrible. DO A BARREL ROLL, FOX!

People, people, people, it says "first appearance", the Powerpoint Presentation said the same thing about the Wii for The Eternal Night, ie they're not the only versions, merely that Spyro is appearing on them for the first time.

Chances are high that there will be a Wii version. A PS2 version is shaky but it's not completely unheard of to have both a PS2 and PS3 release.

It's only concept art. I doubt it will reflect the game model, just in the same manner as the boxarts for A New Beginning and The Eternal Night. >.> Given Spyro's target audience there's no way that we'd see him grow older and older or anything.

Well this is cool. Allow me to make my points.

Ok, first I'd have to speak for my favourite point. Co-operative. Those guys really know how to solve a tough problem, as in the fact of people complaining about TEN being too easy, and those who think too hard. They have made the right choice in solving this and it will also add a ton of fun, especially since that means multiplayer. I hope that they do make co-op avaliable alone, like in The Simpsons Game and Lego Star Wars. And not just one character to control non-multiplayer and two on multiplayer, like Crash of the Titans. The only bad thing about this is that there's a huge chance of Cynder being playable and quite frankly I HATE Cynder. Also, I only know one person that will play with me.

Ok, PS3 version was expected, sorta. Not Xbox 360, but oh well. And guys, IT IS CURRENTLY UNKNOWN OF THESE TWO CONSOLES BEING THE ONLY AVALIABLE! I don't mean there'll only be handheld versions too. No. There is still a chance of it being on the Wii and PS2. A big chance.

The DM? Aww, man, I hope not. I hope to see him in an interesting form but I don't want him to be the final boss. Yes, maybe the second last but it'd be nice to have an unexpected surprise boss. Maybe the Chronicler... Along with this, it'd be good if the game went on after the boss had been beat. Like in YotD, after beating Sorceress' Lair you had to do more. Or Resident Evil 4, you have to escape from the island (but maybe a bit longer than that). I'd like to see you having to control Spyro maybe returning home. Flash and Nina could make a reappearence.

You may have noticed that there are two characters in ANB and two in TEN which names' are sorta not revealed but able to find out. Like Flash and Nina (Sparx's parents) and Scratch and Sniff (Skabb's parrots). Good if the same sorta thing happens here. Some sort of things you have to do during which to survive like in 'Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition' during cutscenes. Maybe even be able to control where you move during cutscenes and such.

Fly at any time? Hope it's limited, not infitite. That would mean you'd have to alter the game majorly.

Yay! Another one for my birthday!

Well, this news tells me it'll be a fairly good game, but quite shaky. But it's still atleast 8 months until said release, so who knows what could happen?
