As part of Nintendo's E3 Direct presentation, it was revealed that Spyro Reignited Trilogy is indeed coming to Nintendo Switch.

This one has had a particularly confusing history; Switch rumours started to appear way back in February 2018, and then the game appeared on Nintendo's official site the following April. Strangely, the listing was eventually taken down, and the game released without a Switch version in sight.

Since then, we've heard nothing surrounding an official release. Until today, that is, where the game was shown for a matter of seconds in the Nintendo Direct. The game features remakes of the first three Spyro games - Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon - and will be arriving on Switch on 3rd September.

Our chums over at Push Square gave the PS4 version of the game a very solid 8/10 last year. Here's a quick snippet of what they had to say:

Spyro: Reignited Trilogy is another cracking remake from Activision. The purple dragon's original trio of adventures holds up brilliantly, with beautiful, colourful visuals and meticulously rebuilt levels. The controls are faithful to a fault; Spyro turns on a dime, but camera issues can frustrate occasionally, and loading times are perhaps a little too long. Overall, however, this is a remake Spyro fans can be proud of, and a threesome of old-school 3D platformers that a new generation of players will come to love.
