After ticking down for the past few days the countdown on Spyro's Lair has reached zero. And with impeccable timing nothing happened. UPDATE: Several hours later and here it is: the minisite for The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon.

Developed by newcomers to the series, Etranges Libellules and Tantalus Interactive (DS version), the game appears to be taking a much more realistic look after the previous two Legend of Spyro games. The game is due to appear on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PlayStation 2 and Nintendo DS this October.

I was just scrounging around and found this short article which gives an interesting first impression.

Edit: More scrounging, another article.

I'm not sure of their reliability but I they seem legitimate.

I read this already.........Sorry Twilight!!

I appreciate the more realistic look, though all I need to know is this: can it be possible to trust Etranges Libellules with such a project like this? Krome established quite a lot of framework, so I have a weird feeling concerning the management here.

Krome aren't on it, but that won't be the issue here. Apparently, this will be Etranges Libellules's first PlayStation3/Xbox360 project so unfamiliar territory may be an issue in getting a game just right for ALL platforms, let alone one or two.

I wouldn't care less about the spiffy graphics. I just want to see the game done right, and that is especially pressured onto a new developer to the series.

I'm not too worried about Krome not on DOTD. I would say the new developers for the 3rd game would have some people from krome to make the game with Etranges Libellules, so that they don't go off track.

If it helps, the person who wrote the script for the other games is still on and he works for Sierra.

Im not worried about the developer too. Sometimes some fresh ideas is whats needed. People always complain the games "are just rehashes" so by bringing a new developer on board (with something to prove) we might just end up with something surprising

also as for the wings being too big. Spyro is getting older and I guess they need bigger wings to FLY at any time.

Putting that aside...

The DS version actually has the playable Cynder. O.O Usually when they put something on the console version they comletly miss it on DS (:coughsmiliecoughsmilie

And, how the hell is the "fly anytime" option gonna effect the game? I'll probably stick to the ground as much as possible.

Fly anytime will affect is in a huge way? Level design mainly. You'll have so many more options to build levels now and it'll make it much better?

Well that's how i read into it
