Ever since Xbox One backward compatibility was announced, gamers have been asking for a few high-profile games. While the majority of requests revolve around the Call of Duty franchise, the Ninja Gaiden franchise has been other hot series. Today, Microsoft announced that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge and Trial Evolution are now backward compatible.
Backward compatibility opens Xbox One to a huge variety of games, spanning three generations of Microsoft's consoles. Despite hardware differences, it remains an outstanding feature, allowing a select library of older games to be played on Xbox One. While the majority of them are Xbox 360 titles, there are also some original Xbox games in there. To date, gamers have enjoyed well over a billion hours of backward compatible games, and the catalog now includes over five hundred Xbox 360 games alone.
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge
Ninja Gaiden 3 may not be the best entry in the series, but it provides a satisfying conclusion to the saga that has spanned a number of games. It's by far the best-looking Ninja Gaiden entry, and the gameplay also holds up even to this day. If you're a fan of the titles, be sure to pick this one up.
Trials Evolution is all about using the thumbsticks and trigger to pull off harrowing motorcycle stunts. While it may not be as newcomer-friendly as Trials Rising, it's still a lot of fun and you'll spend dozens of hours trying to perfect your every move.
