The planned remaster of Spyro has hardly been as plain sailing as Mr Bandicoot enjoyed. For not so long ago the project was delayed due to a difference of opinion between customer and developer over the latter’s cheek to only include one of the three games in the box. But now there appears to be another twist in the tale as this aging classic may not be on one disc at all. Rumours are circulating that it’ll launch on THREE!
You may be wondering where we’re plucking that unusual number from. Well, a Twitter user contacted Walmart via their live chat feature, and asked the assistant a series of cleverly worded questions. Initially they asked if a digital download would be needed for at least a portion of the games. They replied no. And it was when they asked how many discs is it shipping with that they received the reply of ‘three’.
If this were to be true then it would be the second game in a month to launch with multi-discs – Red Dead Redemption is supposedly doing the same this Friday. But then again it is a 105GB behemoth with shrinking anatomy.
Now, if you ask us, three is at least one disc too many. We can’t really understand how three games from the nineties / early naughties could demand so much space? Especially as the Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy fitted on a single disc, and they’re not too dissimilar from each other. There’s also the little issue of the official website still stating a digital download is required for games 2 and 3, though would they really have delayed things if they weren’t willing to rectify the issue that upset fans in the first place? We hope not. Then again, anything’s possible in the world of gaming.
