Purple and Scales… Hmmm…
IGN reports that it has been sent a mysterious package containing a purple egg with scales and a short note from “Falcon McBob” saying that “Something’s About To Hatch”. IGN reports that the name links to an @spyrothedragon twitter handle.
Spyro is a purple dragon from the original PlayStation game “Spyro the Dragon” developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The game was well received and spawned a series of games and cameos by Spyro.
The Spyro series, currently controlled by Activision, was the basis for the spinoff “Skylanders” which helped to fuel the “Toys to Life” craze earlier in the decade. It was also somewhat of a hit until the fall of the format a few years ago. Only Skylanders and Nintendo’s Amiibo survived the fallout.
What do you think? Would you be excited to see a Spyro remaster or reboot? Comment below!
