For those who were hoping to see the little purple dragon make his way to Switch, the wait will continue. Activision is not yet slated to bring the remastered PlayStation era games, Spyro: Reignited Trilogy, to the Nintendo Switch. This may disappoint some fans as both the game’s official site and Nintendo’s page for the game listed a Spyro: Reignited Trilogy Nintendo Switch release after its initial announcement.
The game is set to launch tomorrow on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and Nintendo Life did the leg work of asking Activision where the Nintendo Switch version title had gone. Here is the statement that Activision provided to Nintendo Life:
“We’re excited that even more Spryo fans will have the opportunity to experience the franchise on PS4 and XB1 platforms. We do not have any other platforms to announce at this time.”
Granted, many may remember that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was also announced for the Nintendo Switch later. It also, seemingly, performed well from a commercial perspective. Maybe this, alone, will fan the flames of hope in seeing the spunky dragon on Nintendo’s handheld hybrid console. The statement from Activision certainly isn’t definitively closing off the idea entirely. So, we’ll have to simply wait and see.
One thing that publishers should never discount is the popularity of Nintendo Switch’s mobility with consumers. I know that in my busiest times, I prefer to have mobile options when making gaming choices, and I’m sure I’m not alone. Like Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Spyro: Reignited Trilogy on the Nintendo Switch seems like a match in video game heaven!
Are you a fan of Spyro? Would you like to see one of PlayStation’s former mascots arrive on the Nintendo Switch? Or does mobility not matter as much in comparison to the power of other platforms? Let us know where you stand on the issue in the comments below!
