The latest patch for Spyro Reignited Trilogy will add subtitles “in all languages” to the game’s cutscenes.

Activision found itself at the centre of a small shit storm last year after it responded to the Spyro Reignited Trilogy community’s questions about the absence of subtitle in the game’s cutscenes.

The company’s statement said that although “the studio and Activision care about the fans’ experience especially with respect to accessibility for people with different abilities,” ultimately “there were certain decisions that needed to be made throughout the process,” meaning no subs during cinematics. It didn’t help that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has the same lack of subtitles.

However, today’s patch 1.03 for PS4, and 1.02 for Xbox One has added subtitles in all languages for all of the games in the trilogy.

You can check out the full patch notes below.


  • Added subtitles in all languages (across all three games) for previously unsupported cinematics, including:
    • Character headers to identify active speakers
    • Succinct line splits for readability
    • Colored text for improved character association in most languages
  • Subtitle on/off toggle added under the Options menu

Motion blur

  • Added an option to toggle motion blur on/off under the Options → Camera menu

Bug fixes

  • Fixed progression and completion bugs impacting Wizard Peak, Hurricos, Fracture Fills, Lost Fleet, Fireworks Factory, and Charmed Ridge
  • Fixed camera bugs in Sgt. Byrd’s Base and Dino Mines
  • Stability improvement fix in Spider Town
  • Additional misc. bug-fixes and improvements impacting Glimmer and Ripto’s Arena
