Stewart Copeland has re-imagined his original score for 'Spyro' for the upcoming 'Spyro Reignited Trilogy'.



The Police star worked on the music for the platform video game when it was released in 1998 and now, with the game coming back, Stewart is using the influence of his original soundtrack from the first three games to develop a new one.

He said: "When I was doing Spyro, it was during the 'Golden Age' of my family life. It was a time where my boys were old enough, and my girls were just young enough where we could all sit around the TV and play games. Patrick [his son] would take the controller and guide us through the levels. He was much better at the game than me by a long shot! The graphics were impressive, the gameplay was engaging and the best part for me was that I got to do it all while listening to my own damn music!"

It was previously revealed that the 'Spyro Reignited Trilogy' will give players the choice of the original or remastered soundtrack.

Developer Toys For Bob confirmed at San Diego Comic-Con that Copeland would be back to remaster the soundtraack, but there will be a choice to switch between the new and original versions.

A new song 'Tiger Train' will also feature, and it's said it channels the spirit of the beloved franchise.

Copeland added: "Creating new music for the 'Spyro Reignited Trilogy' has been incredibly fun and nostalgic for me. Seeing how the fans loved the original series and soundtrack was a very heart-warming experience 20 years ago, and being able to revisit that fun with the new game has brought things full circle."

The upcoming remake will be released on September 21 for Playstation 4 and Xbox One and will see 'Spyro the Dragon', 'Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage' and 'Spyro: Year of the Dragon' given high-res graphics and artwork.
