Copeland discusses writing new music for the remaster at the Spyro: Reigniting a Legend panel:
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!
Listen to the new main theme below:
Touches like this one make revisiting the beloved franchise all the more fun, bringing more to the new Spyro experience, but leaving plenty in the way of nostalgia for old fans. Spyro: Reignited Trilogy includes Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. The collection is now available for preorder for $39.99, and arrives on PS4 and Xbox One this September 21st.
