TODO alt text

Vivendi is adding to the growing list of games due this autumn with the second game in the Legend of Spyro trilogy, subtitled The Eternal Night.

Some Ape King dude turns up at the Temple of Souls and starts acting all evil and stuff, predictably plunging the land into darkness.

Meanwhile, Spyro is having strange visions, and it's up to you to unravel the mysteries of these visions and defeat the Ape. In other words, more fire-breathing platforming antics.

There'll be new breath powers and fighting moves, and Vivendi also promises some spectacular boss fights, too.

Back to provide the no-doubt-expensive voices are Elijah Wood (Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings trilogy) as Spyro and Gary Oldman (Sirius Black from the Harry Potter films) as Ignitus, the Fire Dragon Elder and Spyro's mentor.

Screens below show how the three versions are coming along - it's all looking nice and colorful.
