Spyro: Reignited Trilogy Brings An Old Bug Back To Life...

A potential game-breaking bug in "Spyro: Reignited Trilogy" has been discovered... and it's an old one that was eventually patched out of the original versions. It has seemingly found it's way back into the new version once again. The remastered collection, which brings the beloved dragon Spyro back to life with stunning modern graphics and gameplay enhancements, is potentially marred by a critical issue that renders the third installment, "Year of the Dragon," nearly unplayable for some.

This glitch has not only frustrated players but has also seemingly slipped under the radar of major gaming outlets and, more critically, the developers responsible for maintaining the trilogy's integrity.

To be clear, I have not confirmed this issue personally, but wanted to draw attention to it as I have seen a couple reports of it occurring.

According to Savitar on twitter (@CEOofSWG):'s the time trial races in Year of the Dragon, the 3rd Spyro game, that can brick your save. Sometimes, it says you already have the dragon egg from the trial, even if it's your first time. If you get that notification, it means your save is now corrupted!

The core of the problem lies in the game's time trial races. A glitch often occurs indicating that the player has already collected a dragon egg from these trials—even on a first attempt. This notification is a grim precursor to a far more severe outcome: the corruption of the player's save file. Once this occurs, the only recourse is to start the game anew, a frustrating prospect for those aiming to achieve 100% completion.

Despite numerous player reports and discussions within the gaming community, the issue persists without a significant acknowledgment or resolution from Toys for Bob, the studio behind the remaster. Originally developed by Insomniac Games, the responsibility now lies with Toys for Bob to uphold the quality and playability of the remaster.

Savitar on twitter (@CEOofSWG) continues...

It was in the PS1 version of Year of the Dragon made by Insomniac. Whoever remastered this game to PS4/PS5 and other platforms, forgot to patch this game breaking bug. It bricks your save, meaning you have to start over from the very beginning if you want to 100% the game.

This glitch is not just a minor bug; it could represent a significant oversight in game development. It disrupts the fundamental promise of the gaming world: that players can explore, conquer challenges, and achieve goals within a fair and stable environment.

According to some gamers, the current state of "Year of the Dragon" betrays this promise, transforming what should be an enjoyable gaming experience into a potential pitfall of progress and enthusiasm.

Here's hoping that Toys for Bob can address this issue promptly. It is imperative that they issue a patch to fix the glitch and restore integrity to the "Spyro: Reignited Trilogy." There are many who stand ready to revisit the Dragon Realms, egg hunts, and all, once we are assured our journeys will not end in vain.

Toys for Bob, we are waiting for your move. The legacy of Spyro deserves respect, and so do the players who love this iconic dragon!
