Another Three Xbox One Backwards Compatible Games Out Now

Child of Eden gets a new home.

23 Comments

Xbox One's catalog of backwards compatible games has grown once again. Microsoft has announced three more Xbox 360 games have been added to the library and are now playable on the current-generation system.

First and foremost of the three is Child of Eden, a rhythm-action game from Tetsuya Mizuguchi that serves as a spiritual successor to one of his most acclaimed games, Rez. On Xbox 360, it featured Kinect support, but it can also be played with a standard controller. While not as strong of a game as Rez, in lieu of an Xbox One version of Rez Infinite, this is a very welcome addition to the Xbox One's catalog.

Also now playable on Xbox One is KOF Sky Stage, a shoot-em-up spin-off of the King of Fighters fighting game series. And rounding out the list is Goat Simulator. This is another case of a game being made backwards compatible despite the existence of a native Xbox One version. While the latter is the ideal way to play on Xbox One, it's always nice to see fans gain access to the games they already own. As always, physical copies will work on Xbox One, or you can find digital copies in the My Games and Apps' Ready to Download section.

This is the second batch of new backwards compatible games to be released this month, following an earlier release of several Fable games. You can check out our full list for a look at all the Xbox One backwards compatible games. Support for original Xbox games is still on the way this year.

KOF Sky Stage is a fun and silly SHUMP so that is a defiant Boon for the XB1!!

I Really Wish R* would allow GTA: SA and Ubisoft Allow Driver: San Francisco to be BC, Someday soon .... I would love to play those Games again. Plus those are the only 2 Games that I have that are left from my 360 Collection that needs to be added.

A Child of Eden port with Kinect support (and 4 controllers in your pockets) would be nice...

@locke90: You do realize which games become BC, and in what order, are entirely dependent upon the publishers agreeing to have their game become BC and being able to get the lincensing for those games worked out, right? And they can't just can't skip the higher voted games to the front of the line and stop working on other developers games that are already in the process of becoming BC.

MS has already stated they would love to have every game BC, and in the order of the most popularly voted upon titles, but there's too many things out of their control for it to work that way.

Phil said that Xb1 Kinect would not work on X360 BC games but i still hope they can make it happen.

Played Child of Eden with a gamepad on the X360,would really like to play it with a Kinect.

@7tizz: What killed Kinect is that the motion gaming fad had passed by. Add on top of that developers having trouble finding ways to make a compelling gameplay experiences with it outside of waving your arms around. It never had a killer game for it that enticed hardcore gamers to give it a chance. Also, MS was the only company supporting Kinect, it had a limited consumer market. It wasn't just the trolls, it was gimmick gaming, and technology that would have been better suited outside of gaming.

@7tizz: sorry 7jizz but the kinect was not that popular even in our house we used it only a couple of times then put it away the games were halfassed and tended to be in the bargain bin more often than not.

@7tizz: my point is if you take out the fact that the kinect was boxed with the console you will find it did not sell that well.

@shadowwarrior4: Valve doesnt care about their player base anymore. That died when they realized how much money they could make
