The Crash Bandicoot N. Sanity has left gamers wanting one thing, a remaster of the original Spyro The Dragon trilogy. These two series very much held a similar place in people’s hearts and life just doesn’t seem complete without both.
Most PlayStation gamers would know that the original Crash Bandicoot Warped had a demo for the original Spyro the Dragon (which released pretty much simultaneously with Warped). The demo was unlocked by pressing a series of buttons. In particular: up, up, down, down, left, right, left right and square. A Spyro demo would then popup in the main menu of the game.
Well, whilst this doesn’t happen in the N. Sane Trilogy, there is a clear clue when you input those same buttons when hovered over the Crash Warped menu. When entering this same code, the text goes completely orange (with the cursor disappearing). This doesn’t happen with Crash 1 or 2, which makes me think that it was definitely deliberate.

It’s honestly not clear what this means. Does it mean that Activision might built in a Spyro demo later on, or does it hint at Activision remastering the original Spyro series? Spyro definitely wasn’t on the levels of Crash Bandicoot in terms of popularity and sales, but gamers would definitely appreciate a remaster of those titles. Spyro is also a gaming character that definitely has mass appeal, so it’d be great to test the waters with a remastered trilogy.
Obviously, we’ll keep you posted on any happenings.
