As spotted by the Spyro Universe Twitter fan account, the hint appears to have been dropped in the new Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time Art Book.

The book has a quote that points out a little Spyro hidden in the background of the art for the Crash Bandicoot 4 level 'Dingo's Diner'.

"... and a little hint at Spyro," reads the quote from concept artist Brun Croes.

Spyro can clearly be seen poking his head up in the background of the art.

The first Spyro The Dragon game landed on the PlayStation 1 all the way back in 1998.

It was followed by two sequels Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon in 1999 and 2000 respectively.

Those three games were remastered and released as the Spyro Reignited Trilogy in 2018, introducing a whole new generation to the purple dragon, as well as offering a swift nostalgia hit to Millenials who grew up playing the original games.

A steady stream of Spyro games came out on various consoles throughout the 2000s, including a new trilogy of games between 2006 and 2008.

The last new Spyro game to be released was in 2011 with Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, the first installment in the short lives toys-to-live line. It was also intended to kick-off a new trilogy of games starring the dragon, but obviously, that never happened.

But if the success of Crash Bandicoot NSane Trilogy led to a proper new Crash, surely the same thing can happen to Spyro?
