Alan Wake, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Pac-Man join the ranks.
Three new games have become backwards compatible on the Xbox One. They’re nothing major by any stretch by Xbox One gamers can now play Alan Wake, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Pac-Man on their consoles.
The backwards compatibility for Alan Wake comes just in time – Quantum Break will be releasing in April and includes a digital version of Alan Wake with its DLC for playing. If you find the game somewhere or just want something to do once Quantum Break wraps, then Alan Wake isn’t the worst option.
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is arguably more appealing though, especially since it’s one of the best Castlevania games ever made. It’s also responsible for the modern era of 2D Castlevania titles which took a more Metroid-like approach to exploration and upgrades (thus creating the term Metroid-vania).
And Pac-Man is…well, Pac-Man. Still fun though.
Stay tuned for more information on other titles that will support Xbox One backwards compatibility in the coming months.
