Spyro is coming to Switch, but not as we might have one day expected. The lovable dragon has been confirmed as an upcoming character in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled.
Publisher Activision and developer Beenox have shared details surrounding the game's free seasonal post-launch content (which you can see for yourself in the new trailer above). It confirms that Chick Gizzard Lips and co-host Stew are back to host news channel, CTR TV; players can tune in to CTR TV through the game and listen to Chick and Stew introduce each Grand Prix, explaining all the different challenges and rewards you can win.
It also confirms that Tawna, Ami, Isabella, Megumi, and Liz are all correct and present in the game, with Spyro being given just a tiny cameo. Strangely, the PlayStation Blog post which details all of this information doesn't even mention Spyro, but he's definitely there, as shown in this image below.
Additional details surrounding the seasonal content can be found on the PlayStation Blog we just mentioned. As a reminder, the game arrives on Switch on 21st June.
Happy to have Spyro in the game? Are you planning on picking this one up later this month? Tell us below.

Does this lend some weight to the rumor that the trilogy is coming to Switch in September? Weren’t Spyro in CTR and the Switch version of the trilogy leaked together by the same person?
Free regular content updates? Spyro? Well this is nice . Genuinely had no idea this was a thing. I pre-ordered the game when it was announced and I've not really kept up to date with it lol.
Woah nelly! I wasn't expecting this at all. They're really putting all their effort into what I thought was just gonna be a bog standard remake. I'm even more excited for CTR next week.
Their going the splatoon route essentially.
Whatever, the trophy girls are in and that's what matter.
This is great and really think this is gonna be a great game. Looking superb so far and a real emphasis on solo player mode and so much content... wonder if more guest appearances are planned......
Not sure I like the idea of a "roadmap" being for this game, but at least it's turning out quite well.
So Crash gets DLC and free ones at that meanwhile Team Sonic Racing gets nothing, what is wrong with you Sega?
@RyanSilberman At least it's free content to a game they've otherwise already fully remade (so we can't really argue it's not complete on launch since it's got the same + more content than the original 'complete' game).
Not exactly like Fallout 76 which was released in a state that could never be called even close to finished.
Neat that it's going to be free content, also new tracks as well as Spyro!
Sounds pretty good, though it sounds like I might actually have to get an SD card for my Switch now if these updates are gonna take up a lot of space
Mario Kart killer. YES!!
Nice , but more excited for the Spyro trilogy coming to switch as well
Ehh... the upcoming games reel at the end did show the Spyro trilogy coming to the Nintendo Switch.
@thesilverbrick Just shown in the direct!
@Tao true enough
Glad my waiting for the trilogy on Switch paid off.
As someone whose first game was Ctr...
Ahhhhhhhhhh! Hype!! Calm down, breathing out of control! Ahhh! Wowsers trousers!
That's exactly what we need, more baby characters. XD
Nice to see Tawna and the Trophy Girls make a return!
Even more stuff, and its free! I can't complain!
