It's looking really good. I've seen complaints online about how many liberties they've taken with the art when compared to Crash Bandicoot which only upgraded the old style. However I love this new style. I think a lot of those complaints are perhaps forgetting how "bland" a lot of areas were in Spyro. Lacking in detail so that it would run smoothly on the PS1, whereas Crash had a far more limited view which allowed them to cram lots of detail in to start with.

One change that has received praise is that, apparently, when you turn Spyro on the spot he's a lot better at reacting to the controls. In the originals it was always a bit stiff and sluggish. It didn't really allow for great precision so I'm glad they altered that.

They've also recreated the old boxart in the new style:




Comparison to superior European boxart:




And finally for those who missed the news. The game got pushed back to 13th November to give them more time to polish the Spyro 2 & 3 parts of the game.

Still no news on PC and Switch versions but Crash apparently sold well on both platforms so it is expected they'll get a release sometime in 2019.

EDIT: Fixed video hopefully...

Never been that much into most remakes, though this series was a pretty huge part of my childhood and it does look fantastic in HD three platform generations later.

Anyone seriously whining about how it looks too modern or whatever are a bunch of Gnorcs. They did extremely well staying faithful to the originals, while giving it a beautiful HD upgrade.

I always wanted to play Spyro as a kid, but I jumped from Snes to PS2 so i never really had a PS1 in time. I played the PS1 final fantasies and tony hawk 2 at friends houses but I never really had one myself.

As a first time spyro player, is the remaster worth it at full price or should I wait for an inevitable black friday sale?

If it's turns out like the Crash remake then imo it is worth it at full price. Thing to remember is it's not just one game, it's all 3 of the ps1 games remastered and bundled together.

It looks beautiful. Spyro was one of the few games I really liked in the early Playstation days.

Does anyone know if the original soundtrack is in place?

Three games for $40 isn't bad at all. Most new releases are $60.

Does anyone know if the original soundtrack is in place?

Like an option to use the original PS1 tracks? I do not think I have heard of such a thing, but I wouldn't find the need to. The soundtracks sound like a quality upgrade as opposed to some re-orchestration that ruins the original.

Edit: Just saw a video where they display an option to use the original or remastered soundtracks. So there you go.

I'm disappointed in some of the art direction choices, but overall you'd be insane to nitpick this remake. Hoping it makes it over to the Switch by Spring time. (Unless Sony has some sort of 1 year exclusivity deal?...)

Comparison video from a few months ago, kind of looking forward to it.

PS4 and Xbone releases are simultaneous so tgey definitely don't. I think they're focused on the two "main" consoles as they're a safe bet for sales. Switch and hopefully PC will likely be next year.

Yea they added it after fans requested the feature. They've actually made a lot of changes and additions based on fan feedback to the trailers and convention demos.
