Among the trilogy is the first three titles of the Spyro series, including Spyro the Dragon, Ripto’s Rage, and Year of the Dragon, which sources who knew about the project mentioned when they spoke to Kotaku. The remaster is being made over at Activision, and will have quality improvements like a new save feature, visual enhancements, a remastered soundtrack, and even feature new assets. It appears that it will also feature content cut from the original games.
