As a part of Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference, an expansion of its backward compatibility program was announced, adding support for original Xbox titles. While a growing list of Xbox 360 titles has rolled out for the Xbox One in recent years, the latest expansion will bring a whole new wave of nostalgia to fans of the program.
Microsoft has now officially unveiled the list of titles supported by the program at launch, ahead of the official launch on October 24, 2017. Each of the below titles will be playable on Xbox One hardware, with 1080p output, more consistent frame rates and improved loading times.
Note: This list is expected to grow in the months ahead as more titles gain support.
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
- Ninja Gaiden Black
- Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge
- Fuzion Frenzy
- Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
- Dead to Rights
- Grabbed by the Ghoulies
- Sid Meier's Pirates!
- Red Faction II
- BloodRayne 2
- The King of Fighters Neowave
As of right now, Microsoft has only unveiled these 13 titles from the original Xbox library. With some complex technologies and legal boundaries to overcome as a part of the emulation process, only select games will ever see an arrival on the platform.
