The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon is the third and final installment in The Legend of Spyro trilogy that is set to release for October 7, 2008 for Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo DS. Although Krome Studios developed the last two Legend Of Spyro games, Dawn of the Dragon will be developed by Etranges Libellules.
This is the first Spyro game that a player can fly at anytime they want (free-fly mode). The game also features a co-op (two player) play with Cynder. Four never before seen breaths are rumored as well used by Cynder. Also, the game introduces players to drop-in/drop-out with the new cooperative feature. The co-op feature allows players to have the option of completing the game as either Spyro or Cynder, giving them more freedom to explore Spyro's world in completely new ways. Co-op play is confirmed and one player can swap out between Spyro and Cynder at will. While Spyro still commands fire, electricity, earth, and ice as his powers, Cynder controls poison, wind, shadow, and "fear". Also, along with the standard power ups that gems will bring, Spyro and Cynder can now both equip dragon armor in pieces that they find.
