Toys for Bob, the team behind the remastered Spyro trilogy and Crash Bandicoot 4, are known for including fun easter eggs in their games and artwork. Such as the giant floating Spyro balloon seen in the background of a Crash Bandicoot level, which sparked hopes that the team will one day develop a Spyro and Crash crossover.
However, the studio is now possibly teasing something Spyro-related for the official 25th anniversary of the purple dragon in the form of yet another easter egg. In a recent video post from the Toys For Bob Instagram account that celebrates the new year, fans quickly spotted multiple Spyro references.
Despite the post also containing references to non-Spyro projects that the studio has also worked on in the past, fans were adamant that the post was an unofficial confirmation for a new Spyro game. During the short animation, an image of Spyro can be seen in the top left corner, along with the caption “25th”.
New Spyro Game Teased For 2023?
Just as mentioned above, if you look at the attached image or go over to the Instagram post, you will see that Spyro’s birthday has indeed been acknowledged by the team.
The colour purple can also be seen, quite prominently throughout the design of the post, which is only increasing the hopes that we will indeed be treated to a new game.
One thing to also note is that the recent post also contains an equal mix of Crash Bandicoot references and easter eggs, could this be the crossover that fans have been waiting for?
When Is The 25th Spyro Anniversary?
The first ever Spyro game was originally released on the 9th of September, 1998, and it has been speculated that if a new game is truly in development: maybe that will be the date a new instalment could be released.
Whether a new Spyro game is announced this year or not, the studio is clearly proud and ready to celebrate the quarter-of-a-century milestone for the gaming character.
Spyro’s 25th anniversary will officially be on September 9th, 2023.
