Injustice: Gods Among Us hits Xbox backwards compatibility

Injustice: Gods Among Us has been added to the ever-expanding list of backwards compatible games for Xbox One. As announced by Xbox's Major Nelson, Injustice: Gods Among Us is joined by Haunted House as the latest Xbox 360 games to be added to the program.

If you're unfamiliar with Injustice, it's a fighting game that utterly flips the script on the ideas of superheroes and villains. From the game's description:

Injustice: Gods Among Us introduces a bold new franchise to the fighting game genre from NetherRealm Studios, creators of Mortal Kombat. Featuring DC Comics icons such as Batman, The Joker, Green Lantern, The Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman, the latest title from the award-winning studio presents a deep original story. Heroes and villains will engage in epic battles on a massive scale in a world where the line between good and evil has been blurred.

Backwards compatibility also extends to the disc-only Ultimate Edition of the game, so you're in luck no matter which version you have. Unlike the PS4, the Xbox One curiously never saw a re-release of this game, so this should come as good news for many fans. If you're interested, you can currently grab Injustice: Gods Among Us from the Xbox Marketplace for $20.
