Spyro's Lair has now finally fully opened; you can now create your own customised little dragon, chat with others in the Lair using a set of predefined sayings and complete activities for points.

To help show off your creations I've made a simple Dragon Generator that you can use to recreate your dragons from Spyro's Lair and share them with the world.

It seems Spyro might be about to become a movie star.

Quote: Variety
Spyro the Dragon could soon breathe some fire on the bigscreen: The Animation Picture Co. has optioned the rights to turn the purple star of Sierra Entertainment and Vivendi Game's vidgame franchise into a toon.

The film will apparently be based around the Legend of Spyro games.

With the release of The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night last week, the first few reviews of the game have started to appear.

IGN didn't much like the Nintendo DS version of the game, giving it a score of five and a half out of ten (they also have some videos of the game to help you prejudge it yourself).

Quote: IGN
The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night is still far better than the first Spyro outing that appeared on the Nintendo DS, but it fails to keep the momentum going after last year's decent title.

Meanwhile Mobile Game Faqs give the mobile version of the game 76% (7% lower than their score for A New Beginning).

Quote: Mobile Game Faqs
This is a well put together game that's fun to play. The levels do also have some variety between being gem collecting levels, boss levels and flying levels.

And magazines Play and Game Informer have apparently given the console version 8.5 and 6.25 respectively.

On the interview side of things, IGN have a lengthy (on the side of the interviewee) interview with Don Meadows of Krome Studios.

Quote: Don Meadows
I am most proud that we have boss characters that are true boss characters. Both we and Sierra wanted to recapture what it was like to have the coin-munching bosses from older arcade games.

And finally, DS Fanboy also have an interview, theirs is with Amaze Entertainment's Sean Epperson about the GBA version.

Quote: Sean Epperson
It's designed in such a way that a player who is a novice to action games can do cool looking moves, while a player more familiar with action games would find many more layers to the depth of the combat system.

Thanks go to Neal for the magazine scores and finding the mobile review, and to Sean for pimping his own interview.

WorthPlaying brings the first 23 images of The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night and confirmation of it being on the PlayStation 2, Wii, DS and GBA and that it is going to be released towards the end of this year. The game is being developed by the same companies as before, Krome Studios and Amaze Entertainment.

They also mention that Elijah Wood and Gary Oldman are back as Spyro and Ignitus, though there's no mention of David Spade. This is apparently the second of a trilogy of Legend of Spyro games.

Another year rolls on by and darkSpyro gets another year older quite coincidentally. Over the last year we've had over 4 million hits and passed the milestone of 20,000 posts.

Hopefully in the year to come I can finish, polish, and rewrite the current guides, rewrite a lot of the website's code, get the new Guidebook started and get some new features available for registered members and guests alike.
A GameBoy Advance game called The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night has recently appeared on the ESRB's website with a rating of E - Mild Cartoon Violence.

This is the latest development in the rumours of the next Spyro game which started back in February by way of a post on Codename Revolution which mentioned a new Spyro game for the Wii. It was followed a month later with a name; Spyro: The Eternal Night.

Yet another month later and a GBA game of the same name appeared on, the German software rating organisation's website with a rating which means that it is restricted for those below the age of 6.

Current rumours suggest an October 2007 release date and for the game to appear on the Wii, PS2, PSP, DS and GBA.
