A hack and a slash and a racer from the 360 era are now playable on Xbox One.
Microsoft has been adding games to their backwards compatibility at a pretty steady pace since announcing it for the Xbox One. Now, we’ve got two more Xbox 360 era titles coming to the service, and both are interesting choices in their own right.
Ninja Gaiden 2 was added not too long ago, and now the enhanced version of the sequel, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, has come followed suit. While Ninja Gaiden 2 is remembered as a fantastic action game held back by a barrage of technical issues (the game is obviously unfinished in several areas), its sequel is remembered much less so, despite being much more polished and complete. But with Razor’s Edge, the entire rebooted Ninja Gaiden series is now available to play on Xbox One.
Also released was Trials Evolution, a racing/stunt game in the popular Trials series. One of the most well-received entries in the series, it’s remembered fondly for a great many things, including one of the strangest and out-of-nowhere ARGs ever done. Unfortunately, even with it being added to the Xbox One backward compatibility program, the winners in that area will still have to wait until 2113 for their reward.
Both games are available for purchase and playable on Xbox One systems now. You see the tweet from Major Nelson below that confirms the two releases.
