Microsoft has added five more Xbox 360 games that can now be played on the Xbox One via its backwards compatibility feature. They include Bayonetta, the cult classic action game from Sega.
The new additions were listed on the Major Nelson website. Here's a quick description of Bayonetta, which launched in 2009:
From the creative geniuses behind Devil May Cry and Resident Evil comes Bayonetta, a game of 100% pure, unadulterated, climatic action. With powers far beyond the comprehension of mere mortals, our heroine Bayonetta fights countless enemies, evil forces and giant foes in brutal yet graceful ways.
The other games include Arkanoid Live, the 2010 puzzle block game from Taito
Destroy every block on screen by bouncing an Energy Ball against them with your Vaus!
Also on the list is de Blob 2, the odd platformer game from the now defunct THQ:
Blob's origins are mysterious, but he rolled up at the right place and the right time to be the hero that the Color Underground was looking for. Music surrounds him and color energy flows through him; with his touch Blob can literally make the world a better place. Blob represents individuality and determination. Blob is good hearted but lazy. He is often late, but he always comes through.
There's also QIX++, a remade of Taito's classic arcade game QIX that was first released for the Xbox 360 in 2009:
Finally, the fantasy RPG of Orcs and Men from Focus Interactive has been added to the list. Be aware that this game is not available in all of the console's markets:
