Vivendi have finally officially announced the game Spyro: Shadow Legacy for the Nintendo DS, though Amaze Entertainment are the people actually responsible for developing the game.

Shadow Legacy will take use of the DS's touchscreen by way of inputting spells which are shapes and symbols. The second screen is shows the actual view of Spyro moving around. Wireless also plays a part too allowing you to trade collectable creatures. The game will also feature a levelling system, the more enemies you defeat, the more skill points you get to put to Spyro's strength and abilities, you'll also be able to put your experience towards building Spyro's collection of magical powers and martial arts combat abilities. The game also reportedly focuses a lot more on the story and development of characters then any previous Spyro game.

Experience the magic, live the adventure! Spyro returns home to the dragon realms to find them in ruins. He soon discovers that a powerful magic force has banished everyone to the mysterious Shadow Realm. Spyro must master the use of magic and hone his skills - take touch-screen control of the fire-breathing dragon and save the day!

The short video of the game in action on GameSpot shows an almost familiar view of play on the top screen with the camera following Spyro from overhead, though it also seems a more RPG like style of view then before. Here are three screen captures from that video:

Storyline from Nintendo. Also thanks to Mozepy for finding the IGN, MyGame and GameSpot articles.

In other news, I've finally finished adding the pictures to the Spyro the Dragon walkthrough and altered the Character Guide a little as well as finishing off another page of dragon profiles from Spyro the Dragon. Unfortunately this will be the last content update until the end of June, due to other commitments. Hope to bring you more Shadow Legacy news before then though.

After a rumour of a Spyro DS game, it's been just about confirmed in a press release from Vivendi mainly about their McDonalds promotion. It's right at the bottom after some stuff about Crash Tag Team Racing.

As previously posted, the game will indeed be more RPG like then other games and be arriving this Autumn. Something about introducing magic too... More substantial news at E3 about Spyro: Shadow Legacy, hopefully.

This fall the popular Spyro video game franchise will expand to include Spyro Shadow Legacy on Nintendo DS where for the first time ever the franchise will incorporate popular role playing game elements and introduce magic into the adventure.

You should now be able to register and login to accounts and post with them on the new forum. The News and Updates forum is exactly the same as the news and comments you see on the front page and news archives, but there it is displayed in forum form and you can edit your messages there as with the rest of the forum. And since the news reads directly from the same tables as the forum, it changes there too.

No doubt there will be a few problems here and there, if you experience any just post it in the Bugs/Suggestions board or email me if the error prevents you from posting.

In other news, I've also changed the default style of the site to the newLight scheme which is currently my favourite, most likely because it's the newest of course. newLight has also seen a slight makeover with the style of text too. I also finally managed to solve a problem that was being created in Internet Explorer where the titlebar and footer would decide to randomly go off by a few pixels, all sorted now thanks to nested divs.

Please note that this forum system is currently temporary and may be taken down at any time. It is in the test stages and many features may be altered, added or removed during this time. Also, due to a change in the system, you will need to register an account if you want to change the style of the site now. This keeps all options within your profile.
