There’s a sentence I never thought I’d write
We’re bearing down on the release of Spyro Reignited Trilogy, which compiles three classic PS1 adventures, polishing them up for a return on modern platforms. Though most buyers will pick the game up from their local store, or perhaps order online, legendary rapper Snoop Dogg has his own method of delivery.
Activision has commissioned the building of a full-size, talking and fire-breathing drone of the titular dragon, which is apparently flying to locations that inspired the levels of Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro: Way of the Dragon. As seen in the video below, Spyro has already checked out the castle that was the inspiration for the first game’s “Stone Hill” area.
Once his sight-seeing tour is complete, Spyro will fly to Snoop D-O-Double-G, delivering the life-long fan his own copy of Reignited Trilogy. As far as publicity stunts go, this has to rank as one of the most bizarre but, somehow, one of the best. Godspeed Spyro, please don’t crash and burn down the countryside.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy launches November 13 on PS4 and Xbox One.
