How to Change to Retro Controls in Spyro Reignited Trilogy
Spyro Reignited Trilogy is finally out in the wild, and it’s the perfect, most nostalgic way to recreate your childhood memories of playing the old Spyro games on the PS1. Featuring a complete graphical overhaul, new character models and assets, as well as new voiced lines to entice a modern audience, this is a great package for both longtime fans and series newcomers. If you really want to immerse yourself in the PS1 days, though, you could switch to a Retro control scheme. Here’s what you need to know about how to change to Retro controls in Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
The main difference between the modern and Retro controls is the ability to actually control your camera movement properly in the game. With Spyro Reignited Trilogy, you can use the right analog stick on your controller to move your camera around, just like any other modern game these days.
Needless to say, this makes it much easier for you to examine your environments and levels, giving you a bit more awareness as you’re out exploring.
However, if you want the real PS1 experience, you can go back to Retro controls. To do this, open the menu and go to Options. Select the Controls option and choose Control Scheme, and you’ll be able to switch between Reignited and Retro controls.
With the Retro control scheme, you’ll have to move the camera around with the L2 and R2 buttons. This isn’t terrible, but it’s a much more inconvenient and less intuitive way of moving your camera around in Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
If this doesn’t suit your preferences, you can always change back to the Reignited Controls at anytime you want. The option to change your control scheme is always there for you.
