It's being developed by Beenox. I'm not familiar with them so i just hope they don't screw this up.

They've made Spider-Man games and did the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare remaster

Good enough I guess.

Spyro will come to Switch, I have no doubt about that

I certainly hope so, it'd be heck of a missed opportunity if it didn't.

Don't know which to get! This one or the Sonic Racing one...

Likely both.

It seems like they'll be different enough to make getting both worthwhile, with Sonic focussing on teamwork and CTR being a more traditional karting experience.

No reason both can't do well.

Glad to see it's coming to Switch! It's just common sense with a game like this, though sadly common sense is often lacking among AAA publishers.

And yet Spyro Reignited, which is also by Activision, isn't on Switch, so it clearly has nothing to do with the publisher or "common sense". 

It looks great. I recently watched a video that called Crash Team Racing the "best kart racer" ever. It made some interesting points. I might pick this up. 

I am pretty sure biggest reason why Spyro is not on Switch yet is huge size of game thats around 70GB, I mean game has huge additional download even with PS4/XB1 BD discs (something like 20GB), so imagine how huge additional download would be if they using 16GB Switch cart.

Well that's exactly my point. It has very little to do with publishers just being morons. It has more to do with logical reasons beyond that. 

Although, pretty sure Spyro could easily be cut down to half that, but even then I have a feeling that would not be good enough for Switch fans. Cause it would most likely require a download.

Well yeah, but even if they cut to half of that, we still talking about 20GB+ download with 16GB cart. Saying that, with 32GB cart they could have less than 10GB download, but 32GB carts are still expensive especially for $40 game, but that could be changed during 2019. year.



Great announcement, this will be very fan game to play, also great to see all platforms getting same date of release, Switch version will be quite popular.

It is definitely not the reason why Spyro isn’t on switch yet. The game is around 48GB on XB1 and it only uses 200-300 MB from that disc. They should be fine with 16GB cart if only 200-300MB is used. On the other hand the problem here is that 50GB is really a lot for most of switch owners who don’t have a lot of storage on sd cards. So probably they are figuring out how to put some of game data on cartridge so it would require less storage on as card from additional download. I also hope that they fix frame pacing before releasing the game on switch because there definitely problem with it on XB1. It is noticeable when you play it which is pretty annoying. 



My gaming consoles:

Xbox One X 1TB | Nintendo Switch | New Nintendo 3DS | PS4 Slim 500 GB | PS Vita | Nintendo Wii | SNES Mini | Sega Mega Drive 2

2018 HW sales prediction:

PS4 - 97m -- Xbox One - 45m -- Switch - 25m
