Blue Dragon hits Xbox One backwards compatibility

Another classic Xbox 360 title is now available to play on Xbox One via backwards compatibility. This time, gamers can check out Blue Dragon, an RPG from the minds of Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, along with Akira Toriyama of Dragon Ball Z fame.

From the game's description:

Hironobu Sakaguchi, the Father of the Final Fantasy series, and Artoon present the world of Blue Dragon on Xbox 360. Featuring the character design of Akira Toriyama, the Father of "Dragon Ball Z", and music by Nobuo Uematsu, the composer for Final Fantasy, Blue Dragon is an epic role-playing game (RPG) centered on five youngsters who possess miraculous strength and magical power to control shadow creatures that mirror the actions of their masters.

If you're wanting to give Blue Dragon a shot on your Xbox One, however, you won't be able to do so digitally. The game isn't for sale on the Xbox marketplace, so you'll have to track down a physical disc copy to get started.

Are you going to give Blue Dragon another go? Let us know in the comments below!

  • My all time faves! This is in English right? Can be found at GameStop or Amazon?
  • Yes, and yes. Also, pump the volume during boss battles. It's pretty epic.
  • Awesome! Maybe now I can beat it!
  • This really is one of the only Backwards Compat games I wanted to happen. The rest are just icing on the cake. I guess the Street Fighters are all that's left on my wish list (never going to happen).
  • Include the Soul Caliburs as well. Bayonetta was what I was waiting for, and it happened
  • this and lost odyssey we got a few months back , im set for the xmas holidays now :)
  • Awesome game, glad to see it join the bc party.
  • YESS!!!
  • I wish these BC games could somehow get digital releases for the One. I'd buy this today. Instead I'll maybe one day get it on eBay when my backlog has been reduced. Digital buys are much simpler and impulsive.
  • This is kinda hard to find in Australia, but I'll jump on Ebay and see what pops up.
  • Yes!
  • God damn it, i was really hoping they could make it as a digital copy, well balls, now i'm "fubernucked" again, i can't find a single copy of this game anywhere where i live.
