SPYRO THE DRAGON® TO CONTINUE HIS EPIC NEW TRILOGY THIS FALL IN THE LEGEND OF SPYRO™: THE ETERNAL NIGHT

Elijah Wood and Gary Oldman Return to Provide Voice-Over Performances

READING (6th July, 2007) – Sierra Entertainment, a division of Vivendi Games, today announced The Legend of Spyro™: The Eternal Night, the latest installment in the 17 million-unit-selling Spyro™ franchise and a continuation of the new The Legend of Spyro trilogy of games. The game is expected to release this autumn for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Wii™, Game Boy® Advance and Nintendo DS™ and mobile phones.

The legend continues in the second installment of The Legend of Spyro trilogy with the Ape King arriving at the Temple of Souls in an effort to usher in a new age of darkness. As Spyro, players must unlock the secrets behind a series of strange visions that he is having and find the power to defeat this terrifying new force.

“We’re really excited to continue the re-emergence of one of video gaming’s most popular characters through this ongoing trilogy,” said Al Simone, senior vice president, Global Marketing for Sierra Entertainment . “The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night takes the action and excitement of The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning to the next level with new breath attacks, fury modes, and the introduction of the new ‘Dragon Time’ ability to deliver an exciting experience that Spyro fans and gamers of all ages will love.”

Returning to provide voices for The Legend of Spyro™: The Eternal Night are leading Hollywood actors Elijah Wood (Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings trilogy) as Spyro and Gary Oldman (Sirius Black from the Harry Potter films) as Ignitus, the Fire Dragon Elder and Spyro’s mentor.

The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night continues the strong action-infused gameplay focus established in The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning and takes it even further with exciting new powers, including:

• Four new, upgradeable Breath Attacks (one for each element type), such as Ice Bomb, Electric Orb, Earth Vine, Enhanced Fire
• Four new elemental melee moves, including Comet Dash, Artic Blast, Earth Pound, Electric Spin
• Four new Fury attacks – Earth, Electricity, Ice, Fire
• Monstrous new and explosive boss battles against the likes of Skabb the Pirate, Gaul the Ape King and more

Introducing “Dragon Time”
The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night will also expand Spyro’s combat arsenal by adding “Dragon Time,” a new advanced move that allows Spyro to bend time to his will. Players will be able to engage Dragon Time to dodge attacks, out-maneuver enemies or solve tricky time-based environmental puzzles.

Developed by critically-acclaimed developers Krome Studios (PlayStation 2 and Wii) and Amaze Entertainment (Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance), The Legend of Spyro™: The Eternal Night is scheduled to be released in autumn 2007. Vivendi Games Mobile is also making The Legend of Spyro™: The Eternal Night available for mobile phones throughout Europe and North America.

A lot is going to happen in this new spyro game. And I think dragon time means slow-motion.

Sweet, a statement! Now all that's missing is coverage on all the major game sites like IGN and Gamespot, but we'll see.

Thanks for sharing it, dark! smilie

Hm? I noticed that there was a section for that game in Gamespot's Wii section, but that was completely empty last time I checked. And there was no mention of that game in the other consoles it got announced for at the time.

[EDIT: Okay, tie my sombrero on and call me Moneybags >.> Looks like IGN and Gamespot both got their fill on news coverage today. Sorry for jumping to conclusions.]

That new feature (Dragon Time) seems a bit like Enter The Matrix's Slow-mo mode...

One should note that Spyro 6 (A New Beginning) had this feature in a limited way (slow-mo mode activated whenever you smacked foes. Mostly useful for advanced combos, chaining up multiple breath attacks and physical attacks). Hopefully, this is not the final name for the feature (as it sounds REALLY lame. Even just plain "slow motion mode" sounds better) and hopefully, it will be used better than in Enter The Matrix (but then, that game was quite... mediocre).

But well, apart from that, although they did confirm that there will be new attacks, I am disappointed to see no info on the actual gameplay. Namely, whenever or not the game will have more exploration and will be more open-ended than Spyro 6.

Hopefully, they shall not disappoint. Considering their performance in Spyro 6, I am quite optimist... although I still say that the slow-mo mode's name should be changed, definitely.
