"Since his debut in 1998, our purple dragon Spyro has been a favorite character among console gamers everywhere," said Michael Pole, EVP of Worldwide Studios, VU Games. "Spyro fans are sure to welcome his greatest adventure to date - an adventure game that immerses players into a deep storyline, more diverse, lush environments and introduces a strong line-up of engaging characters."

Spyro must save the Dragon Realms from the Evil Red Dragon who has planted light-sapping Dark Gems all over the Dragon Realms in an attempt to capture and control the world. With the help of his allies, Spyro must seek out and destroy all of the Dark Gems to return the lands back to normal and to save the Dragon Realms from the evil dragon's tyrannical control.

The fierce purple dragon will travel across dark, mysterious lands in which the environments shift from evil to good in real-time - affecting enemies, music, lighting, objects, sky and more. Outfitted with mighty new abilities including the Wall Kick, Tail Swing and Ledge Grab, Spyro will fight his enemies with powered-up breath attacks - burning opponents with Flame Breath, deep-freezing rivals with Freeze Breath, obstructing adversaries with Water Breath and destroying mechanical enemies with Electric Breath. In addition to playing as the heroic leader Spyro, gamers will also have the opportunity to play as weapons master Hunter the Cheetah, dive-bombing penguin Sgt. Byrd, loyal sidekick Sparx the Dragonfly or the all-new weapons-equipped, climbing Blink the Mole.
