Real talk here: Spyro the Dragon was my all-time favorite game to play when I was growing up in the 90’s. Although my video game phase ended many moons ago, I was delighted to hear that my favorite franchise was coming back and has an official drone to help get the word out about its upcoming video game launch of Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
Spyro’s drone (which both talks and has the capability to breathe fire OMG), will be flying cross-country to explore the cities and iconic landscapes that have a striking resemblance to what fans will immediately recognize as iconic levels and themes from the trilogy.
While it has been 20 years since the first Spyro game was released, some friendships never die. To ensure that Spyro can connect with old and new friends alike, the Spyro drone will be capturing his cross-country adventures on his social media channels for fans to enjoy. The drone even speaks iconic lines from the game.
Swung by the Stone Hill Castle to grab the new Spyro Reignited Trilogy game coming 11.13. On my way to @SnoopDogg now, but his crib got nothing on my castle 💰 💰🕶 #SpyroToSnoop #SpyroDrone pic.twitter.com/OeXfx4dqXo

“We can’t wait for fans to see this awesome fire-breathing and talking Spyro drone and encourage everyone to have their phones ready to catch Spyro on his journey,” said Michelle Fonseca, Senior Product and Marketing Director, Activision. “Spyro the Dragon is such a pop culture classic and we’re thrilled to bring this beloved character to fans for the launch of the newly remastered series,Spyro Reignited Trilogy.”
During the U.S. tour, two icons will connect when Spyro delivers an early copy of Spyro Reignited Trilogy to entertainment icon, Snoop Dogg. Excited as ever to be reunited, both will be dropping the same sick burns they had back in the day. The socially-connected Spyro drone will share Instagram stories, tweets and posts of the two O.G.s catching up on Spyro’s social media channels.
Ok, maybe one day I’ll trade my castle for this view. #SpyroToSnoop #SpyroDrone pic.twitter.com/lgHwvLs6oN
