The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning serves as a prequel to the previous games although the little purple dragon has plenty of new techniques up his sleeves (scales?). New info cites that there is a greate emphasis on combat and character customization. Spyro gets new Fury attacks and melee/ariel combos while also receiving new breath abilities. Players will get to tweak these moves and upgrade them as they choose. Perhaps even more interesting is that a few celebrities such as Elijah Wood, David Spade, and Gary Oldman are being brought in to breathe life into characters new and old.
