Sierra Entertainment has today announced the autumn release of The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night, the second in a planned trilogy of titles.

The story continues with the Ape King arriving at the Temple of Souls in an effort to usher in a new age of darkness. Players take on the role of Spyro and must unlock the secrets behind a series of strange visions that he is having and defeat a terrifying new force.

The game is once again filled to the brim with voice talent, including Elijah Wood as Spyro and Gary Oldman as Ignitus.

New to the game is something being called Dragon Time, a new advanced move that allows Spyro to bend time. This can be used to dodge attacks, out manoeuvre enemies or solve time-based puzzles.

Other additions include four new, upgradeable Breath Attacks, four new elemental melee moves, four new Fury Attacks and plenty of explosive boss battles.

The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night is scheduled for release in the autumn for Wii, PS2, Nintendo DS and GBA.
