Insomniac and Naughty Dog have had kind of a back and forth on the last few generations of PlayStation consoles, with both companies releasing big Sony exclusives in similar genres. The PS2 had Jak and Daxter and Ratchet & Clank, while PS3 had Resistance and Uncharted. That all started on the PS1, however, as the two companies both released strong trilogies on the system, Naughty Dog with Crash and Insomniac with Spyro.
The little purple dragon quickly became a gaming icon, and the original Spyro trilogy is still a fantastic adventure-platforming experience even today. With the success of the Crash N’Sane Trilogy, it seems like a no-brainer that Spyro needs to come along at some point. In recent years, the dragon’s success has waned, his games weren’t received as well, and he was even used to help introduce the Skylanders series. However, that simply means that it is definitely time for a quality comeback. With remakes being all the rage right now, there isn’t a better time.
