Vooks.net have an interview with John Welsh of Krome Studios. The interview clears up a few things and rules out multiplayer from The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning.
Quote:
Will the game feature any multiplayer elements, if so what are they?

No, the core of the game has always been delivering an exceptionally fun single player experience so it definitely felt to stick to and enhance upon that experience. The focus has and will always be on Spyro and his own experience as he learns who he is, what he can do and what he has to do.

Also included with the interview are a few new screenshots. Thanks go to GnastyRatchet for finding the interview.

It only took a year and a half but I've finished the maps for A Hero's Tail. Along the same lines I've finished the maps for Season of Ice too, only four and a half years late this time. Now all those lost things can find their way again, hurrah!

I've also now properly finished off the mobile Spyro the Dragon walkthrough which was previously hindered by the lack of the final level in my version of the game. It does indeed now include the boss fight.

Amazingly it's now been two years since I first threw a version of darkSpyro onto the interweb. Who'd have thought this place would still be around, eh?

I meant to finish off the additions to A Hero's Tail by today but, y'know, I'm rubbish at deadlines set by myself. All I managed to do was a Dark Gem page, a Dragon Eggs page and a Light Gem page., ah well. Expect more (actual new stuff) soon(ish).

GameSpot provide the first The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning video. With a length of 1m35s the gameplay video shows Spyro fighting various different enemies using his melee and breath attacks.

Seen throughout the video is a light following Spyro from a short distance away, so although Sparx isn't the health meter in the game he still appears to be following Spyro around nevertheless. And near the end you also see Spyro flying, apparently being chased as he dodges missiles flying past him. The chaser is unseen but it's likely to be Cynder as mentioned in the pre-show previews.

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.
