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.

The first 18 images from The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon have appeared on IGN. As they're from the Xbox 360 version, they're quite big. They also confirm all the information from ToTheGame, right down to the typo in Spyro's name.

See also Kotaku for DS screens.

Thanks go to Spyro Technics for spotting them on IGN.

Recently SpyroWorld spotted that a website called tothegame had posted pages for a game called The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. tothegame at the same time had pages for a Crash Bandicoot game entitled Crash Bandicoot: Mind over Mutant, this name has turned out to be accurate... so could the Spyro name (and info) be correct too?

They had the same information from the Velvet Octopus PowerPoint plus a bit extra...

Quote: tothegame
In the culmination of the trilogy, players find Sypro teaming up with an unlikely ally - Cynder, his former enemy, to face his most challenging mission to date. As the Dark Master's (voiced by Mark Hamill) evil envelopes the world like a plague, Spyro must fulfill his destiny and unlock the true power of the purple dragon within him to stop the Dark Master in his tracks.

  • Two elements never before seen in the Spyro universe: fly at any time and drop-in/drop-out co-op, with Cynder. Both characters can complete the game separately as well.
  • Cynder being introduced as a strong, female lead alongside Spyro, girl gamers will have something to get excited about!
  • Fun combat gameplay with new elemental attack moves/combos, enemies, environments, etc.
  • This is the third and final installment of an epic trilogy, giving players a more mature character design and story line since the previous title; The Eternal Night.
  • Spyro makes his debut on the PS3! This new venture for the purple dragon onto the next gen console will attract new players who may have not been able to experience the Spyro series previously.
  • All-star voice cast including Elijah Wood, Gary Oldman, Blair Underwood, Christina Ricci, Wayne Brady and Mark Hamill

The information posted for both games was quickly removed but Mind over Mutant has today appeared at Crash Village with the same story.

In case you were still a little sceptical, today Nintendo announced a list of games due out this year, a list including "Spyro (tentative title) (Vivendi Games) October 2008" for both Wii and DS. For those Crash Bandicoot fans out there they also list a Crash game for them both as well.

A mysterious countdown has appeared on the splash page to Spyro's Lair. It appears to be counting down to the 28th of April (12 pm GMT). As the image accompanying the countdown is the after credits image from The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night, could this be a countdown until they officially announce the third part of the Legend of Spyro trilogy?

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.
