Activision is working on a PS4 remaster of the fan-favorite Spyro the Dragon Trilogy, Per Laura Kate Dale of (h/t Gamespot.)

The report, citing sources close to the project, will be officially announced during March 2018, with a slated release date set for Q3 2018.

Similar to the successful Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, the remaster will get "new assets, lighting, animations, and cinematics, as well as a remastered soundtrack" - plus a save feature.

It's noted that the trilogy could include content that was cut from the original games. Exactly what form that would take is unclear, but N. Sane Trilogy received the infamous Stormy Ascent level that was previously only accessible with a GameShark or emulator.

Mitch Wallace of Forbes suggests not holding your breath, regarding well-rounded success, because of the "remasted soundtrack."

The famous original soundtrack was expertly composed by Steward Copeland, in-demand composer, and drummer of The Police.

"Copeland needs to be involved with this project," Wallace exclaims. "I know hes busy with opera and orchestra these days, and Im sure he still commands a high price for freelance work, but going about it any other way seems like a recipe for aching disappointment."
