Everyone excited to get back to the most famous purple dragon’s glory days is going to have to wait a couple months longer. The Spyro Reignited Trilogy has been delayed until November 13, 2018.
In the blog post announcing the delay, Toys for Bob Studio Co-Head Paul Yan said,
“I really hoped that you would be rescuing dragons and scorching Rhynocs sooner, but the Trilogy needs more love and care. In November when you’re exploring the Dragon Realm, Avalar, and the Forgotten Worlds, we know you’ll agree the extra time was worth the wait.”
I am always for delaying a game to make sure that it is completely done before release, but that does not mean I am not curious about exactly why the game is being delayed. Are there glitches galore and it just was not going to be fixed in time? Does it have to do with the fact that Ripto’s Rage and Year of the Dragon are not on the physical disc? This means that anyone without an internet connection, or at least a good one, will only have access to the first game unless they are addressing that issue here. (For more on that, read Polygon’s article HERE).
Regardless of the reason, I am always going to be much happier getting a game with more polish on it than a broken, unfinished mess of a game. I’m looking at you, Sega. Giving me multiple unfinished Sonic games….
November is pretty busy as usual, but I just cannot wait to get a sweet sip of that Spyro the Dragon drink that will take me into nostalgia town.
