Bully: Scholarship Edition and Catherine hit Xbox One via backward compatibility

Three new games have made their way to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today, including one of Rockstar's more ambitious endeavors, Bully: Scholarship Edition, and narrative-driven platformer, Catherine.

As announced by Xbox's Larry Hryb on Twitter, Bully: Scholarship Edition, Catherine, and Raskulls are all now playable on Xbox One. Both digital licenses and physical discs are both supported, allowing owners to play all three Xbox 360 titles on their Xbox One consoles. For those yet to pick up these titles, all three are available as Games on Demand titles via the Xbox Marketplace.

Bully: Scholarship Edition is an open-world action adventure title, with players taking control of a rebellious student, Jimmy Hopkins. Bringing together some of Rockstar's previous work on other franchises, Bully is a fairly unique take on the school lifestyle.

Catherine is another unique title, bringing together puzzle and platformer gameplay alongside a strong narrative. Developed by a Japanese developer, Atlus, the game stands out as a culmination of two very different genres.

Finally, Raskulls side-scrolling platformer, where players must use the surrounding blocky environment to quickly navigate levels. Available exclusively through Xbox Live Arcade, existing owners can find the title in their 'Ready to Install' section today.

  • Darn I just picked up bully on Android. Good news though.
  • Great to see Bully. I've had the game forever and have literally only played an hour or so total. I look forward to finally playing through it.
  • All three for me, #lovingdigital
  • I picked up Bully during the Black Friday sale. Good news for sure!
  • A masterpiece IMO
  • Now if the were just free, I would play them...Catherine was one of those titles, I kind of wanted to play but, was not sure... If it was free, I would give it a shot... Bully was on my list of Want to play but, never got to...too many games, too little time..
  • Be nice if when they go BC, they would have a 1 week price cut. There are several titles that I would pick up.
  • Catherine is fun, and got challenging at times. The story is a bit.. It's kinda... How to describe? Japanese? Yes, Japanese. So, like that or hate that, it's there. All-in-all, I liked the game.
  • Good to see bully. played about 6 hours on it on the 360. Good game.
  • Recently Bully launched on Android/iOS.
  • Rockstar is on a roll. They probably saw the potential after releasing that western game. Fully support this company. They know how to make triple A titles.
