Video Game: Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy
aka: Spyro Fusion
The eighth Spyro the Dragon game, released in 2004 on the Game Boy Advance. A crossover with Crash Bandicoot and a sister game to Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage. Known as Spyro Fusion in Europe.
This video game provides examples of:
- Canon Discontinuity: Possible, due some contradictory aspects such as the Dragon Realms being called "Dragon Castles" and the fact that Crash games are meant to take place on Earth.
- Crossover: Spyro and Crash!
- One Game for the Price of Two. This has a companion game where you play as Crash called Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage. One has to get both to get the full story, though later releases put them in a single cartridge, somewhat averting this.
- Promoted to Playable: Several NP Cs such as Bianca, Moneybags, Ripto, Crush, Gulp and even one of the series' sheep fodder, are available in the game's multiplayer mode. Curiously Sparx and Shiela, despite having their own cards, are not.
