At this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, Activision and Toys For Bob announced the return of Stewart Copeland (The Police) to the Spyro franchise. Copeland, the series’ original composer, revealed a clip of the new soundtrack main theme featured in Spyro Reignited Trilogy to fans during the Spyro: Reigniting a Legend panel. Known as “Tiger Train,” Copeland’s new intro reprises recognisable music motifs from the first three Spyro games into a memorable, orchestral-rock journey.
Franchise fans can go down music memory lane as the Spyro Reignited Trilogy brings a new in-game audio feature that allows players to switch between Copeland’s original and the newly remastered soundtracks. Players can simply toggle between the old and new soundtracks at any time during gameplay via the options menu.
Watch the Spyro Reignited Trilogy music options trailer below:
Stewart Copeland, acclaimed musician (The Police), film score writer and composer said: “Creating new music for the Spyro Reignited Trilogy has been incredibly fun and nostalgic for me. Seeing how the fans loved the original series and soundtrack was a very heart-warming experience 20 years ago, and being able to revisit that fun with the new game has brought things full circle. I can’t wait for players to hear the new intro title track and enjoy the option to play the remastered game to my original music when the trilogy arrives this fall. ‘Tiger Train’ includes some of my favorite themes from the original soundtrack, which I’m sure the Spyro faithful will appreciate!”
Spyro Reignited Trilogy developer Toys for Bob was joined by Stewart Copeland; key members of Insomniac Games, including Ted Price, Brian Hastings and Brian Allgeier, as well as Tom Kenny (the voice of Spyro) and Michael John (producer at Universal Interactive Studios on the original Spyro trilogy) to share their favorite moments creating and remastering one of the most beloved trilogies in video game history. During the panel, fans were also treated to a first look at remastered gameplay footage from Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!
