Xbox One Backwards Compatibility news: Three new games announced


Xbox One players are about to get more classic games as Microsoft recently announced more new titles from the Xbox 360 that will be available to the current generation console. This time, three games were added to the list of the growing backwards compatibility librarythe colorful “Jet Set Radio,” the racing game crossover “MX vs. ATV: Reflex,” and the fun casino arcade game”Texas Hold ‘Em.”

Through the recent post of Xbox Live’s Larry Hryb on Twitter, it was revealed that the above mentioned three new games will be added to the expanding library of classic favorites all thanks to the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program.

First is the colorful music game “Jet Set Radio.” Released for the first time in the year 2000 as “Jet Grind Radio” for the SEGA Dreamcast console, the game was brought back on the Xbox 360 via the Virtual Console. Now, it comes to the current gen console system with improved graphics and frame rate. The game takes on the adventures of creative street graffiti artists in the fictional city of Tokyo-to.

Next is the two-wheeled racing game “MX vs. ATV: Reflex.” The old favorite from the past generations of gaming was brought back to the scene last 2014 when Nordic Games acquired the rights as part of the deal that was struck between Nordic and THQ, when the latter filed for bankruptcy in 2013. Aside from bringing the old games back to life, Nordic also released a new game from the franchise at that time, and was called as “MX vs. ATCV Supercross.”

“Texm Hold ‘Em,” on the other hand, is one of the classic favorites that finally made it to the Xbox Live Arcade in 2006. The game boasts not of graphics or action, but of the traditional arcade card game fun with friends, all thanks to the online multiplayer option.

More games under the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program are set to be announced in the coming weeks.
