We’re inching ever closer to the release of Spyro: Reignited, and he recently celebrated a birthday!
To celebrate, the game’s Twitter account tweeted a cute little video on September 9th, which starts out with Spyro flying in-game, and he runs into a dragon who is holding a birthday cake. Cool as he is, he then licks his little paw and slicks back his yellow hair. Spyro then blows out his birthday candles, making it the most adorable birthday party I’ve ever been at.

If you were a kid in the 90s, Spyro probably makes up a huge chunk of your memories. Those little feet pitter pattering across the grass is simply music to our ears.
Here is a timeline of every Spyro Game that exists, with Spyro Reignited added in as well:
1998: Spyro The Dragon
1999: Ripto’s Rage
2000: Year of The Dragon
2001: Season of Ice
2002: Season of Flame & Enter The Dragonfly
2003: Attack of the Rhynocs
2004: Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy & A Hero’s Tail
2005: Shadow Legacy
2006: The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning
2007: The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night
2008: The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon

Pretty soon, we’ll be transported back to the same beautiful landscapes we were first wowed by on our beanbag chairs in 1998, and they’ll be crystal clear.
This time, our parents probably didn’t buy the game for us and we’ll barely be stopping to order postmates to fuel our gameplay, but that’s okay! Spyro came back to play with us, even as adults!
Toys For Bob and Activision’s Spyro Reignited releases on November 14th for Playstation 4 and XBox One.
