Why does the Spyro Reignited Trilogy official website include a clickable blank spot on its platforms drop-down menu?

Is the Spyro Reignited Trilogy coming to Switch? Who the hell knows at this point, but weird and circumstantial evidence keeps popping up. Today's tidbit comes more from the weird side of things, but perhaps it'll be a bit more convincing to you.

If you head over to the official Spyro Reignited Trilogy website, scroll down to the section that lets you choose platform for the game. There's the usual PS4 and Xbox One listings, but then there's something else. There's a blank spot that you can click/choose as your platform. Why on earth would there be a blank spot as a choice of platform? As you might guess, some are speculating that it's a placeholder slot for the Switch version.

If the Spyro Reignited Trilogy is coming to Switch, please let tomorrow's Nintendo Direct finally put an end to the speculation!

GameStop Germany removes their listing for the Spyro Reignited Trilogy on Switch

Man, this whole situation with the Spyro Reignited Trilogy potentially coming to Switch has been a nightmare. There have been so many listings for the game on Switch, and they end up getting removed days later. Even the Nintendo UK store had a listing at one point!

The latest retailer to add a page for the game was GameStop Germany, which just went live yesterday. Here we are 24 hours later, and the listing has already been yanked. As usual, there's been no explanation for why the page was posted, nor why it was pulled.

GameStop Germany adds listing for Spyro Reignited Trilogy on Switch

Here we go with this story again! Will Spyro Reignited Trilogy come to Switch? It's been a debate for quite some time, and now the latest bit of evidence comes from GameStop Germany. The retailer just added a listing for a Switch version of the game, and they say it's coming out on Aug. 16th, 2019. We'll reach out to Activision for comment, but it's likely they won't have anything to say.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy dev remains quiet about the potential for a Switch version

Why didn't the Spyro Reignited Trilogy come to Switch? Your guess is as good as ours. Nintendo UK's online store even had a full preorder listing for the game, but it was quickly yanked down. That would make you think a version has to be in the works, right? If one is, the developers aren't talking. Check out this exchange between Game Informer and Toys For Bob producer Peter Kavic below.

GI: What insight can you guys give for systems? It’s just PS4 and Xbox One right now, right? Is it a window? Is it going to be coming to other systems?

PK: All of our focus was on PS4 and Xbox One. The other stuff, we wanted to get this game out so this is the important thing. We got this into people’s hands. The rest of it, that’s Activision stuff that we aren’t as privy to.

GI: Okay, gotcha. But technically it could run on a Switch I’d imagine – that you had that in mind while designing it.

PK: I have yet to even see it tried, but maybe.

Certainly makes you wonder if the game is ever going to come over. You'd think after the success of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on Switch, it would have been a lock!

Activision does not have 'any other platforms to announce' for Spyro: Reignited Trilogy 'at this time'

The situation with Spyro: Reignited Trilogy potentially appearing on Switch is so confusing. It seems like something Activision would bring over, but nothing has been officially announced. Even Nintendo UK's online store had a full listing for the game, which was then yanked shortly thereafter. Is the collection coming to Switch or not? Here's the latest statement Activision offered up.

We're excited that even more Spyro fans will have the opportunity to experience the franchise on PS4 and XB1 platforms. We do not have any other platforms to announce at this time.

As you know, whenever a company says 'at this time,' it usually means something good for the future. We'll just have to cross our fingers for that being the case this time around.

First 4 Figures releasing Spyro 8" PVC Painted Statue

Even before we launched our Spyro resin statue on 18 July 2017, there already was a cry for a PVC version of Spyro the Dragon. A resounding 1,105 people petitioned for one. If the resin version turned out for the better, then First 4 Figures' Alex Davis would have looked into acquiring the license for the PVC version. Although TT Poll #22 for Spyro the Dragon only had 438 Yes votes, to our astonishment, our Spyro resin statue was a massive success. The edition size of the Exclusive version hit 1,300 pieces worldwide! To express our utmost gratitude, we decided to give back by upgrading the design of the gem box that comes with the Exclusive version.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy gives interesting answer concerning a possible release for the game on Switch

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy made it over to Switch, so could we see the same thing happen with the Spyro Reignited Trilogy?Toys For Bob Co-Studio Head Paul Yan had an interesting response when asked this very question.

"[We're] Not talking about anything else right now."

The same kind of response was given when asked about Crash Bandicoot coming to Switch, and look at what happened. I think it's only a matter of time.
