Three More Xbox One Backwards-Compatible Games Arrive Today
Get all of your Lost Odyssey discs ready.
Lost Odyssey, Guwange, and Toy Story 3 are all being added as backwards-compatible games today, Microsoft announced on Twitter. Toy Story 3 is a surprisingly decent kids game, while Guwange is a port of a vertically scrolling shoot-em-up from Cave.
Lost Odyssey is the most noteworthy of the bunch for a number of reasons. It was one of the major attempts by Microsoft to bring exclusive JRPGs to Xbox 360. It was designed by Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakuguchi and his studio, Mistwalker. Oh, and it took up four DVDs, one of which was simply thrown in the case in a paper envelope.
Backwards-compatibility support for multi-disc games was first introduced on Xbox One with the Director's Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution back in May.
You can choose to play backwards-compatible games with physical copies by popping the disc into your system, or you can download the digital versions. In the case of Lost Odyssey, it'll be a hefty 22.43 GB installation.
