Sierra Entertainment announced the latest installment in the 20 million-unit selling Spyro franchise, The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night, is now available at retail stores nationwide for the Wii, PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance and coming soon for mobile phones. Reprising their roles and once again breathing life into the characters of Spyro and his mentor Ignitus, are two of Hollywood’s leading actors, Elijah Wood (Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Gary Oldman (Sirius Black from the Harry Potter films). Joining the cast this year is Billy West (Ren & Stimpy, Futurama) as Spyro’s sidekick Sparx.

In The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night, players will follow Spyro as he faces a myriad of enemies on a quest to defeat Gaul, the Ape King, before he unleashes a terrifying new age of darkness on the land. Players must also unlock the secrets behind Spyro’s strange visions as he attempts to uncover his role in an ancient prophesy.

“With massive worldwide appeal, the 20 million-unit-selling Spyro franchise opens yet another exciting chapter this holiday,” said Pascal Brochier, president, Global Retail for Vivendi Games. “Based on the first installment’s success, we’re confident the new Legend of Spyro game is going to be a fan favorite for gamers of all ages.”
