Calling all gamers…

As Spyro the Dragon approaches the 25th anniversary of his debut on the PlayStation, fans are wondering if 2023 will be the year he makes a comeback. 

The beloved purple dragon has been a staple of the gaming industry for decades, intriguing players with his charming personality and thrilling gameplay. Spyro’s journey has had highs and lows, but the Reignited Trilogy on PS4 reignited excitement for the franchise back in 2018, and many are eagerly waiting to see what the future holds for the character.

One possible hint at Spyro’s comeback came from developer Toys for Bob, who recently posted a collage of images to celebrate the new year. Among a variety of photos and other projects, Spyro was hidden in plain sight with the text “25th” next to him. This post has caused a stir among fans, with many wondering if it’s teasing a new Spyro project.

While it’s unclear whether the post is a hint at a new Spyro game, there’s no denying that the dragon’s 25th anniversary is a huge milestone. Fans of Spyro have been eagerly waiting for new developments, and it’s hard to imagine that nothing will come of it considering the significant date. The question, of course, is whether that acknowledgment will come in the form of a new game or something else.

Some fans have also speculated that the binary code in the image might have something to do with an upcoming project, however, without an official announcement from Toys for Bob, it’s difficult to say for certain what the code might mean. The developer has yet to reveal any details about their projects, and it’s possible that the binary code is simply a nod to Spyro’s anniversary and nothing more.

That said, many Spyro fans are hoping that the developer will acknowledge this milestone by bringing back the dragon through a new game. The Spyro series has been dormant for a few years, and players are eager to see what new adventures the dragon might embark on next. 

Some have even suggested that Spyro might follow in the footsteps of the Crash Bandicoot series and receive a proper sequel like Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.

Fans think this would be a fitting way to celebrate Spyro’s 25th anniversary, as it would allow players to relive their favourite memories while also experiencing new and exciting gameplay.  

A new Spyro game could also be a chance for the developer to bring the dragon’s character to a new generation of players. The Spyro series has always been known for its challenging and rewarding gameplay, and a new game would likely continue that tradition. Additionally, many hope that a potential new Spyro game will feature improved graphics, taking full advantage of the current generation of consoles.

Only time will tell what the future holds for Spyro, but one thing is for certain, the beloved purple dragon has a special place in the hearts of gamers everywhere, and his comeback is highly anticipated.
