In this article, I will talk about Spyro: Year of the Dragon. This is the third installment of the franchise and Spyro will not be alone in his journey.
The game begins when Spyro and his gang celebrated the “Year of the Dragon”. The year of the dragon only happens once every 12 years and it is to celebrate the coming of new dragon eggs.
The celebration was cut short, though, because a rabbit girl called “Bianca” invaded the dragon land along with her minions called the “Rhynocs”. The Rhynocs stole all of the dragon eggs to bring to their master, the Sorceress.
The sorceress plans to release the eggs in different realms, probably to make them do her evil bidding.
Because of this, Spyro and his friends are assigned to retrieve all of the dragon eggs. The eggs are found in four different realms: Midnight Mountain, Sunrise Spring, Evening Lake, and the Midday Gardens.
During the course of his rescue mission to retrieve the eggs, he comes across a realm where he saw some of his dragon kin that was already turned into stone, alone and forgotten.
He was then confronted by Sheila the Kangaroo. She told Spyro that the realm was once lively and dragons roamed free. The dragons provided the power to sustain the beauty of the realm.
Unfortunately, the dragons’ powers were taken away by the Sorceress. With a renewed vigor to stop the Sorceress, Spyro went ahead to and Shiela went with him as well.
Spyro travels into the four realms and in each realm, Spyro asks the aid of the inhabitants to help him stop the Sorceress and his army of Rhynocs.
