Spyro

Another retail listing has appeared for Spyro Reignited Trilogy on Nintendo Switch, giving us even more reason to believe the game is surely on the way to Nintendo's hybrid machine.

As spotted by Twitter user @AngrySpace, this listing appeared on GameStop's German website, indicating that a Switch version of the game is scheduled to launch on 16th August this year. SpyroUniverse grabbed a couple of screenshots of the listing below, which was previously available to view right here. Now, clicking on that link simply takes you to the store's home page, indicating that the listing has since been removed.

In case you weren't aware, the recent Spyro trilogy released on Xbox One and PS4 back in November last year with no Switch version in sight. Right up until release, everyone and their cute, purple dragon believed that the game would be coming to Switch, too, mostly thanks to a listing on Nintendo's very own website and then another listing on the official Spyro site. It doesn't really get much more concrete than that, but both of these listings were quickly taken down after being spotted.

Despite these apparent confirmations, though, the game still hasn't been officially revealed for Switch. We asked publisher Activision for comment near the game's release and received a very standard, nothing-to-announce-style answer in response. If the game had only been listed on the sites of external retailers, we'd still be rather sceptical, but we still can't get over the fact that a Switch version was shown on the Nintendo and Spyro sites last year. It must be coming, right?

The worst kept secret in gaming history? Or just a lot of wishful thinking? Let us know in the comments below.
