Well, that’s just a nice Holiday present, right there.
Lost Odyssey is one of the gems of the Xbox 360 library- created by Hironobu Sakaguchi, the legendary creator of Final Fantasy, the game is a beloved, cult classic JRPG that many fans pine for a sequel for to this day. So when the game was made compatible with the Xbox One, there was much rejoicing. There was a bit of a catch, though- given that it is a multi disc game, Microsoft couldn’t put it up on the Xbox Store, and fans were left tracking down rare discs of this almost decade old release at the point.
However, whatever software issues prevented the game from being available to download have now been resolved, and Lost Odyssey can be downloaded from the Xbox Store, right now. That’s not all- you can download it right now for the price of nothing. That’s right, Lost Odyssey is free to download on Xbox One (and also Xbox 36) right at this moment, and it will remain so until December 31.
Blue Dragon, the other Xbox 360 exclusive JRPG, also by Sakaguchi and Mistwalker, is also available digitally now, although that one you’ll have to spend $20 getting- which honestly is not a bad price for it at all. But hey, $20 to try out what are among the two best JRPGs of last generation? Doesn’t sound like a bad deal to me at all.
