Another Game Joins Xbox One Backwards Compatible Ever Growing Library
Another classic Xbox 360 game is joining the party at Xbox One’s backwards compatible library. During the new Inside Xbox livestream, Microsoft revealed the harsh action game Ninja Gaiden II is now playable on the Xbox One console, and it–along with some of other existing BC games–has been improved for Xbox One X.
Ninja Gaiden II originally released for Xbox 360 back in the year 2008. The game featured many improvements over its predecessor, coming with an enhanced combat system that enables players to dismember enemies.
If you still own a physical copy of Ninja Gaiden II, you can now put the disc into your Xbox One and begin playing. As earlier mentioned, the game is also improved on Xbox One X. Microsoft says the game runs at a higher resolution and features nine times the pixel count when played on the more powerful console.
In addition to Ninja Gaiden II, Microsoft is rolling out Xbox One X updates for five previous backwards compatible games, including three Splinter Cell games–Double Agent, Conviction, and Blacklist–and both Fable 2 and 3. You can see the full list of Xbox One backwards compatible games here.
Microsoft confirmed that it is bundling Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass together into one cheaper subscription called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. It also unveiled the long-rumored disc-less Xbox One S console.
