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.
