New Xbox One Backward Compatibility Games Out Now

Lots of driving and lots of slashing.


Xbox One players have two more games they can now play on their console. Microsoft's director of programming for Xbox Live, Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, took to Twitter to announce that the Xbox One now supports two more Xbox 360 titles via backward compatibility.

Both Team Ninja's Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge and RedLynx's Trials Evolution join Xbox One's forever-growing backward compatibility list. These titles are available to download starting today.

Now Playing: Two More Xbox One Backwards Compatible Games Added - GS News Update

Developed by Team Ninja for the PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is an enhanced Ninja Gaiden 3 port that includes the original DLC, as well as a variety of performance enhancements and improvements. Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge released nearly a year after the initial game's March 2012 release date and brought alongside a host of changes like increasing the speed of kunai climbing, introducing new weapons like the lunar staff and kusarigama, improving enemy AI, and more.

Trials Evolution was developed by RedLynx. Released for the Xbox 360 in April 2012 before speeding to iOS and PC in 2013, Trials Evolution--the fourth mainline entry in the Trials franchise--tasks you with facing and overcoming a variety of motorcycle trials in a bid to claim the top spot on the leaderboards. Trials Evolution includes two course editors (Lite and Pro) that allow you to create and share courses online.

In our Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge review, we called the update "a welcome gesture, and one that makes for an improved action game--yet a hundred small fixes are no substitute for a game built from the ground up to be a challenging, fluid, and fulfilling action extravaganza."

In our Trials Evolution review, we said it's "a great game that not only tests your skill and patience, but keeps you laughing at the ridiculous scenarios."
