Child of Eden, Goat Simulator added to Xbox One Backward Compatibility

Xbox’s Major Nelson announced today that three more Xbox 360 games have been added to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list: Goat Simulator, Kinect game Child of Eden and Xbox Live Arcade title KOF: Sky Stage. These new additions succeed to Fable Anniversary and Fable II Pub Games, which were added to the catalog last week.

As usual, you can find more information as well as Xbox Store links for all three games below:

Child of Eden ($29.99)

One of the most anticipated games of 2011 for Kinect. Winner of 9 awards at E3 for innovative graphics, music, and gameplay. Child of Eden is the “multi-sensory shooter” that will send players diving into a visual matrix of synchronized music and mind-blowing visuals. It will usher forth yet another landmark game experience from the mind of renowned game designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi.

Goat Simulator ($9.99)

Goat Simulator is the latest in goat simulation technology. You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat; your dreams have finally come true! Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. Destroy things with style, such as doing a backflip while head-butting a bucket through a window, and you’ll earn even more points! Key Features • You can be a goat • Get points for wrecking stuff • We’ve only eliminated the crash-bugs, everything else is hilarious

KOF: Sky Stage ($9.99)

This “Real Martial Arts” shooting game takes to the blue skies as six of your favorite “The King of Fighters” main characters fight to stave off the resurrection of Orochi. Each character retains their own normal shots, as well as ultimate techniques. Each character’s special move has 3 three levels at which they can be unleashed, depending on the amount of energy in your ultimate technique gauge. The biggest feature of this game is its brand new fusion of the play systems of the “Shooting” and “Martial Arts” genres.

It’s been nearly two years since Microsoft launched the Xbox One Backward Compatibility Program, which was one of the big features of the New Xbox One Experience. The Xbox team is still working to extend backward compatibility to original Xbox games, and the feature should launch later this Fall after the release of the Xbox One Fall Update.
