The final cover art for the Spyro Reignited Trilogy is here after being posted on the Official Spyro Instagram, then quickly deleted and reposted on the Official Spyro Twitter account. Alright guys a lot to discuss so without further ado let’s get started analyzing this cover art.
Now here on the left side which is represented by Spyro 1’s Stone Hill from Artisans Home. In it you can see a couple of gems, a shepherd and his sheepdog, which we already seen a few times so I don’t think I need to discuss them. Unless I want to go comparing the shepherds staff with Sly’s cane, Sly 5 confirmed. Moving on we have perhaps the two most hilarious parts of the cover art, the sheep and the gnorc. The sheep just knows whats going to happen, while the gnorc just looks really goofy and dumb appearance. We have a crystal dragon far in the back an look who we got here, the big boss of Spyro The Dragon, Gnasty Gnorc. But what’s more intriguing is that door that we saw in the announcement trailer, that door wasn’t in the original game and a lot of people are speculating what is behind this door. Anyways in this art the door is open, so that tells me that you can possibly open it at some point in Spyro 1, from Stone Hill obviously.
We’ve got Spyro, front and center, wings blazing and ready for action. Next up we got the right side, which represents Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage. On this side got the Skelos Badlands. In this section you can see more gems, Lava Lizards, an elemental. A baby dragon and a bone builder hut, but what’s this? Another shining door, just like what’s in Stone Hill for Spyro 1, what the heck is that. Except, however this door is already explorable and exists in the original game unlike the Stone Hill door. Now we also got Ripto, which there’s already this big debate about Ripto’s design. Some like it, some don’t, but me personally I don’t care because I never played Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage. I’m not complaining, for me at least were getting a new Spyro game outside of Skylanders. But just a reminder this is just art, not in-game models, so he might look better in-game we’ll just have to wait and see. Now personal opinion on his design, he does look more sinister and menacing here than he did in the PS1 era.
Now onto the final section of the artwork, the middle top represents Spyro Year of the Dragon, the only one in the original trilogy I’ve actually played. In this part we got the fire dragons from the mini-game in Spyro Year of the Dragon, I think the minigame is from Fireworks Factory? Speaking of Fireworks Factory, it’s here representing the game. But this time no glowing door, but we do have the ninja rynoc. Then we also can’t forget the final boss of the trilogy, the Sorceress. Yes the boss I very rarely got to because of my lack of a PS1 memory card for my PS2. She actually looks more like a crocodile now, actually when you think about it she looks more like the Sly Cooper villain, Mz. Ruby.
That’s actually all I got for the cover art other than that it’s got a whole lot more going on than the Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy cover art. Alright time for the part about the game at E3 2018.
The game will be featured at E3 2018 as well as a new trailer, which will probably show some gameplay from Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage and Year of the Dragon. Anyways there will be two levels playable at E3 2018, Toasty and Tree Tops. Now both of these levels are from the first Spyro game in the Reignited trilogy.
Alright guys, what do you think about this, are you excited even more for Spyro’s return? Will you be trying it out at E3 2018? Also what do you think of the cover art?
