Right, there is enough evidence to believe this is happening. The original Spyro trilogy (Spyro 1, 2 and 3) being fully remastered from the ground up for PS4 just like Crash.

http://www.kotaku.co.uk/2018/02/13/spyro-trilogy-remaster-coming-to-ps4-this-year

This is a very trustful source and the same person has verified other games that happened not too soon afterwards.

In addition we already have a classic Spyro figure being released just like Crash figure, and the guy in charge of Crash N. Sane Trilogy is lead designer of a currently unannounced project. And honestly, given the sales of Crash, there is absolutely no reason to not make this.

So yeah... bring it on! This is easily my most wanted game right now. I want it so goddamn much.

I will rename the thread when they announce this.

Was just about come to post this here and pm you since I know how much you'd like to have it haaah. I can't wait for the trailers.

Never finished the games, I played some spyro game or two of them though. 

I'm gonna check some gameplay of the originals to remember better how they were.

That is awesome. It will probably be a first day buy for me. :)

It isn't funny just how much nostalgia is selling right now? Crash, FFVII, possibly Spyro and CTR. What's next?

That would have been fantastic, MGS is one of the best PS1 games ever made. If you haven't played it yet, go out there and do it. It aged so well... The problem is, until Konami sells their IPs, don't expect anything from them apart from PES and their business in casinos. Keep in mind that this is the company that killed franchises such as Silent Hill (a remake of the first game would have been awesome too) and kicked Hideo Kojima out. So, don't think about it, it's not worth it. :lol:

Hopefully Spyro will be brilliant, I'm having a lot of fun with the N. Sane Trilogy, if some of the creators are there, that is a great sign.

Hah :D

These are great games, they all have their own strong points. Like, Spyro 1 has the best atmosphere and locations, Spyro 2 has the best story & character interactions, and Spyro 3 has the best variety in gameplay. This is why they make a strong trilogy as their strengths complement each other well. I definitely recommend playing through them all so that one can see why there is such strong demand for remaster.

My only gripe with Spyro has usually been the camera. They need to do it better in the remaster. Also, these games are not as difficult as Crash (Spyro is focused more on exploring levels and collecting stuff and less on navigating through tough areas with well-timed movement), so maybe they could see if they can find ways to boost up the difficulty a bit, for example by making bosses more difficult and longer.

For me too!

Yeah, nostalgia is a powerful thing. PS4 is starting to feel like the rebirth of PS1, when we have:
- Crash Trilogy
- Spyro Trilogy
- MediEvil
- Parappa the Rapper
- Final Fantasy 7
- Oddworld Oddysee and Exoddus
- Probably CTR too

All these are remakes/remasters (whatever you call them) of classic PS1 games. And there's probably even more in the horizon knowing that utilizing nostalgia is easy way to make cash for game developers.

And yeah, I could see MGS1 remake being made sometime soon, it's one of the most well-received PS1 games after all.

Took less longer than I thought it would since the levels are less streamlined than Crash. I'd like to see them remake at least one more title from their catalog like Ultimate Spiderman. It's the only PSX game from them I can think of right now that aged very well like Crash and Spyro.

With remakes in general, I think Skullmonkeys remaster would be fun too.

I would love a Silent Hill remake, Metal Gear Solid, Rayman... and this is just talking mainstream. There are also non mainstream options such as C-12 Final Resistance, Pink Panther: Pinkadelic Pursuit (a very fun 2D platform game you should try, it even has a wonderful soundtrack)... The possibilities are endless.

Ok, let's distinguish remakes and remasters for future discussions. :lol: From what I understand, remasters are basically a boost on the video quality. For example, FFX for the PS3/PS4 is a remaster, Silent Hill 2 and 3 for the PS3 are remasters as well. Remakes on the other hand, are a completely redesign of the graphics. FFVII and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trylogy for the PS4 are good examples of remakes. Hopefully Spyro too!

Spider Man for the PS1 might be one of the greatest super hero games ever made. And I'm not even joking. Not only the gameplay is amazing but you have a ton of outfits to choose as well. I always picked symbiote spider man. I love it. :D

One game that should get a remake, and considering the events of Tekken 7 it makes even more sense now, is Tekken 2. Contrary to Tekken 3 or TTT, this game hasn't aged very well. It's not unplayable, far from it, but it isn't on pair with the games I just mentioned. And it's a shame considering the importance of the story and how it influenced Tekken 3's story, Tekken 4's story and so on. The roster is also very different, we would get a change to see a much younger Heihachi, Kazuya, Paul, Law... as well as removed characters such as Baek, Kunimitsu or Jun. Btw, I predict a return of Jun for Tekken 8, you saw it first here. :hehe:

That Spiderman game on the ps1 was the sh*t, loved it and played it a lot. I wish there were Spiderman and Turtles games on PS4 where they actually look like the originals and the story is from the original comics or cartoon or whatever. Now, for me personally, the best turtles game is on 8-bit and the best spiderman game is on ps1.

SEGA didn't release any mini console. Atgames did. I'm not saying you will not get your money's worth because it's 80 games + hardware for a reasonable price, but the quality isn't there compared to Nintendo. Things such as Mono sound output in the 21st century, I mean, what's that?

As for a mini PS1 console, I will be up for that, but considering that PlayStation hasn't changed a lot over the years (we still get the same series of games and even the dualshocks are still practically the same) and all PS1 classics are already on PSN, personally, I don't see the point. I'm more interested on a portable version, an upgraded version of this:

Yeah, I wished they based the games on comic books rather than movies. I have nothing against them but comics books are much better as a base. You produce such great results.

It's a Sega-licensed mini console release, why split hairs? Even original Sega systems were licensed and manufactured by several different companies.

You could make the exact same argument against the NES Mini, SNES Mini and the Sega systems. Most of their series are still ongoing, and the majority of the old games are available to download on several modern consoles. Yet their mini systems still sell incredibly well.

A lot of people might not want to spend $300 + PSN Plus membership fees, + $5 extra for every PS1 classic on the store.

I don't think it will be seen as something that's worth the trouble in the near future. They could just pack them in bundles through the PSN store or stream them with PS Now and finally put that to use.

The classic editions from Nintendo have the aesthetic appeal of an old thing that's a household name restored in a convenient way. It's a party prop. Doesn't demand attention and blends in with everything else like a pinball machine or a pool table.

Like I said, there are plenty of people who would like to relive childhood nostalgia without paying $300 for a PS4, plus the PS Plus membership, plus the cost of the games themselves. Just like the people who bought the NES Mini, there are plenty who would love to just plug in Spyro, or Tekken 2, or Crash Team Racing and play for a minute instead of booting up a mini computer, signing in to a PS Plus account, downloading updates, etc etc

And what is this about "aesthetic appeal"? As if the NES is some work of art :lol: The PSOne is a lot better from a decorative standpoint. How would it "demand attention" any more than a goddamn pinball machine? :XD If you've got a pinball machine in your house, you're looking for some attention.

Or are you forgetting that the PS is 25 years old now, and is just as retro as a SNES?

It's an antique of gaming, looks cool. Plus, I bet way more people revisit those games to this day than they do with the classic PSX games.

What is your malfunction dude? I hope they do make a PSX classic edition for what it's worth. I highly doubt it though and would settle for PSN/PSNow.

I'm splitting hairs because as far as the mini Mega Drive/Genesis goes, the quality isn't there Wild Lion. That's the problem...

Yeah, on a sales point of view you're exactly right. I'm sure that if PlayStation released a mini version of the original PlayStation that would be a resounding success, but is that needed? Basically all of the PS1 classics are available in PSN at a reasonable price, not to mention, that if you want to go for non mainstream classics, you can get them for a reasonable price on eBay or Amazon.

That's not a very good argument for two reasons. First of all, the PS1 classics are available on the PS3 PSN, you also do not need a PSN Plus membership to buy them. You must also consider the backwards compatibility of PlayStation who is not on pair with Nintendo for example. I can play my copy of Tekken 3 perfectly on PS2 or PS3. And second of all, of course no one will buy a PS3 or a PS4 to play exclusively PS1. If you're talking about very nostalgic people who have totally given up on current consoles, I'm not sure if that's the kind of market you want to appeal. I bet that if those people are still interested in videogames, they still have a PS1/PS2. Of course the last part is only my opinion, feel free to disagree.

There's also one thing that needs to be considered. I paid 90€ for my mini SNES + 21 games installed. I cannot put more games there legally, nor do I have the ability to buy more if I had the chance. There's also a problem of quantity. You'll certainly agree with me that in countries such as the US, UK and so on, Nintendo wasn't prepared to satisfy the very high demand, so the mini SNES or even the mini NES wouldn't affect the main console sales. What if PlayStation releases a mini version of PS1 and you are not even able to buy it? What if you want more games?

Alright, enough with that off-topic guys. PS1 Mini would be great and all but make a separate topic for that. It has nothing to do with Spyro HD trilogy remaster.

The Outsider, CTR remaster will most likely happen, as apparently Activision has a five-year plan for Crash series, including a new game in 2019 which could very well be CTR. As N. Sane Trilogy was a huge success and sold extremely well, I'd say CTR is only a matter of time.

Now, on-topic, what I hope for Spyro trilogy to add is a boss rush mode (aka beat all bosses as fast as possible) for each game. This would add some replay value for bosses and provide some new fun challenge. I think N. Sane Trilogy should have had this too, too bad it didn't happen.

Really excited about the possibility of this. Spyro 2 was the first console game I ever played and remains one of my favourite games of all time along with the other 2.

My biggest concern is the voice cast. It wasn’t as big a deal with crash as those games were always fairly light on story, but spyro had a lot of dialogue. I’m hoping as much of the original trilogy’s cast will come back as possible, especially Tom Kenny as Spyro.

For the voice cast, I doubt they are able to get the original cast back. They didn't manage to do that in N. Sane Trilogy. I would like it to happen though.

TBH as long as they can get some seasoned voice actors in addition to decent voice direction it'll be good.

I'm so incredibly stoked to hear about this actually happening. Those platformers on the N64, PS1, and early PS2 are among my favorites of any video games, period. I was ecstatic about Crash getting remade and it turned out wonderfully. I'm even more ecstatic about Spyro getting redone, as I felt the worlds were much more details and colorful than Crash's ever were and could benefit much much better from a graphics update.

This is my most anticipated game of the year if it really is happening.

Yup, I definitely look forward to see how the worlds are going to look like visually. If the quality will be anything similar to Crash, they sure are gonna look magnificent.

Honestly I believe they will recycle some assets (like textures and stuff like flowing water and grass) straight from N. Sane Trilogy because the visual style is so similar and they can save resources by doing that. And this would mean the overall style will probably resemble the colorful and vibrant style of N. Sane Trilogy.

I think we already have a feel for what the stages might look like since there are tons of fan-made remakes. It was the same thing for Crash except the actual remastered trilogy turned out to be way better of course.


I always preferred Crash gameplay-wise but Spyro was the more beautiful game imo.
