Spyro the Dragon to Join “Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled”

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy will be launching on the Nintendo Switch and PC on September 3rd, 2019, and to celebrate the release of the original Spyro games on brand new platforms, the tiny purple dragon will also be added to Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled‘s Grand Prix content.

To celebrate Spyro’s 21st anniversary of saving the Dragon Realms, lead developer Toys For Bob is inviting fans to tune in to a special live stream on Games Done Quick’s Twitch Channel at 10 a.m. PT on Sept. 3. During the stream, fans will get a dragon’s-eye view into how the studio is commemorating the launch of the game on these two platforms and how players can join in on the fun.

However, if September is too long of a wait, Spyro will be joining Crash Team Racing with the “Spyro & Friends” Grand Prix that is set to go live on August 30, 2019. Available for no additional charge to those who have purchased the main game, the Spyro & Friends Grand Prix is giving the iconic purple dragon a license to crash the CTR party for the first time.

In the Spyro & Friends Grand Prix, players can burn rubber and cruise through “Spyro Circuit,” the all-new Spyro-themed track while collecting gems, dodging firework bundles and (of course) flying by sheep. Spyro the Dragon won’t be venturing into this alone; the purple speedster will be joined by Hunter and Gnasty Gnorc as playable characters with Sparx joining in the fun as a protection mask akin to Aku Aku on the Spyro Circuit track. The Spyro & Friends Grand Prix will also come packed with other hot content that players can earn when connected to the internet, such as fresh new rides with the Spyromobile, Gnasty Ride and Dragonfly, as well as other new Pit Stop items including the amazing new Gem Paint Jobs and element-themed wheels, the Viking Polar Skin, the Orc Big Norm skin and more!

Spyro Reignited Trilogy is set to hit Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam on September 3, 2019. The remastered version of the classic Activision titles will set you back a cool $39.99 USD.
