Two new Xbox 360 games are now playable on Xbox One starting today. Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, an action-adventure hack and slash game released in 2012 is joining Ninja Garden Black and the recently added is the first title to join the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list. As a reminder, previous episodes Ninja Gaiden Black (an OG Xbox game) and its Xbox 360 sequel Ninja Gaiden 2 are already playable on Xbox One.
The other game that became backward compatible today is the racing game Trials Evolution. This one remains of the most critically acclaimed episodes in Ubisoft’s popular Trials series, though be aware that it may not be available to purchase in all regions on the Xbox marketplace.
The Xbox One Backward Compatibility list currently includes more than 500 Xbox 360 and OG Xbox games, and Microsoft keeps adding new titles at a regular pace. Some of these games are also enhanced for the Xbox One X with 4K graphics, which is a great way to breathe new life into some classics such as Gears of War 2, Fallout 3, or Red Dead Redemption. The full list of backward compatible games is available on Major Nelson’s website.Further reading: Backward Compatibility, Nija Gaide, Video Games, Xbox, Xbox One
