Spyro

Last Tuesday, as part of the Nintendo E3 Direct, Spyro Reignited Trilogy was confirmed for release on Nintendo Switch. Soon after, the game was listed on North American retailer Best Buy's website and the box art revealed that an additional download was required when buying the game physically.

Now, this is nothing new - the PS4 and Xbox One versions faced the same issue, with users only being given the first of the three included games on-disc - but things get a little more interesting when looking at the European box art.

As you can see in the comparison below, the European box - which has now been listed at retailers such as Amazon and Smyths - doesn't feature the same 'download required' warning box as the North American release. Does this mean that all three games will appear on European cartridges? It certainly seems possible.

We'll know for sure, of course, when the game launches on 3rd September. Whether by download or as part of the retail package, you'll be able to enjoy Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon.

Are you thinking of picking up a copy of Spyro? Have you already bought this on another system instead? Let us know in the comments.
