GameSpot has a press release from Sierra Entertainment detailing the hollywood voice-over cast, previously it was unknown who they each played.

Quote:
This epic story of Spyro's quest to discover his roots and realize his destiny is amazingly brought to life by leading Hollywood voice-over cast members Elijah Wood (Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings trilogy) as the new voice of Spyro; David Spade (The Benchwarmers) as Spyro's sidekick Sparx the dragonfly; and Gary Oldman (Sirius Black from the Harry Potter films) as Ignitus, the Fire Dragon Elder and Spyro's mentor.


Again, the game is confirmed as set for release in October.

TeamXbox bring the first eight images of the new game The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning to the public.

It seems like Krome Studios are the developers this time around and that they will probably be ignoring the Japanese Spyro origins by having Spyro raised by a family of dragonflies for some reason. It does seem however that Spyro will be back in the flying seat instead of Sgt Byrd who took over for A Hero's Tail.

Thanks go to Mozepy for finding the article.

The game is also mentioned in a GameSpot news article and also a GameSpot E3 pre-show first look. And the same press release as on TeamXbox. No images on GameSpot just yet though. They also confirm Krome Studios as the developers for all but a DS version, that one they say is by Amaze Entertainment again.

Also, Vivendi now have a proper page with a rather bland looking logo as well as five screens of the game, four of them not on TeamXbox.

And IGN now also have an article about the game, but there's nothing new there.

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.

Apparently it's a prequel of sorts...

VUGames now have a page for the new game, The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning, which has some info about the game but unfortunately no pictures or screenshots yet.

Quote:
Level Up to Feel the True Power of the Purple Dragon! The Legend of Spyro shifts in game design and now focuses on action/combat and character growth/customization. Unleash devastating fury attacks, new melee and aerial combo attacks or use one of Spyro's many new breath abilities to defeat foes. Feel the power of the purple dragon as players have the control to upgrade Spyro's breath attacks and moves to their liking. It's a new beginning with a storyline that will serve as a prequel to all of the existing Spyro titles, the narrative will explore Spyro's origin for the 1st time and the game includes AAA voice talent from Elijah Wood, David Spade and Gary Oldman.


Whilst the VUGames website only has a page for a PlayStation 2 version, according to the game's ESRB entry the game will appear on GameCube, PlayStation 2 and the Xbox. Incidently the game is rated 'Everyone 10+ (Cartoon Violence)'.

This was an April Fools by the way...

It's been a long two years but I'm afraid this is the end for darkSpyro. I just can't see Spyro going anywhere, and that's why I welcome you to my brand new replacement website darkCrash. Without the four legged limitations of a dragon, this orange marsupial has a lot of room left to grow and improve. Whilst the sections are barebones at the moment that's something I'll be working on over the next few weeks.

Sorry for any inconvenience if you were expecting a Spyro the Dragon fansite, and hopefully there won't be any residual problems left over from the Spyro days, which I hope we can all now just forget as Crash is the only one with a real future.

I've added a way of rating each of the games out of five. Just click on the stars at the top of each game page, choose the number of stars you want to rate it then just click on the corresponding star on the new picture. It doesn't work without JavaScript though.

Along with that I've added a top five at the top of the homepage, it uses the new ratings, as well as a short list of the latest news articles. As always there's always a chance of bugs this early on so please let me know if you find anything wrong with it.

It seems like the new Spyro game may have a name at last. Due for release on GBA, PS2, DS, GC and Xbox on the 13th of October 2006, Spyro: Legend is apparently the next game in the Spyro series. And again the game appears to be being developed by yet another new company to the series, this time it's Havas Interactive. This information was found at Gamesarefun.com and emailed to me by Jon.

Also on the find list is a new Crash Bandicoot game, Crash: Boom Bang on the DS due for release at the same time.

I'd say that whether the game will actually get released on all the consoles mentioned is questionable; it's a lot of different versions to manage.

Aside from what may or may not be a vague prediction on IGN, there's still been no news of a new Spyro game. There's a similarly vague thing about it here (which gives a 3rd quarter release for Spyro 6 on the PS2, GameCube, GBA and DS) too.

In site news, I've put the Ripto Quest section back in action and have added a brand new Spyro the Dragon section for the Mobile game bearing that name. You'll find them in the 'Other Games' link on the right. There's also a new alternative link to the proper games sections just above it.

I've altered the news archives for individual years so that they show a calendar of the year rather then producing a long page of news items, though that option is still there. I might as well mention the forum changes too.

UPDATE: I've also just added a rather pointless poll on the right.

Welcome to the brand new look to darkSpyro. We've got the same content as before and a little extra (minus Ripto Quest which will be back soon anyway). Use the image links on the left to navigate your way around the games. All other links are on the right as well as the advert, remember that that's the only thing paying for the hosting.

Anyway, there may be some new glitches and mistakes around the site whilst I try and iron any out. If you wouldn't mind mentioning any you find in the comments for this news post I'd be very grateful. And just so you know, the random image selection in the top right isn't switched on just yet, I'll probably get round to doing that tomorrow when I fix up the banner as well.

As well as all that, I've written a brand new guide, for the Mobile Phone game Spyro the Dragon. View the basic text file here.

UPDATE: Now with hover effects.

Yep. Hope you had a good one.

And look out for a new look to the site in the new year.
