This is likely the real list of upcoming original Xbox backwards compatible games
Prominent Microsoft watcher WalkingCat recently posted a screen cap showing various OG Xbox backwards compatible games, and it looks as though it's the real deal.
Posted on Twitter, WalkingCat linked the below screen cap, showing various unannounced OG Xbox classics, claimed to be coming to the Xbox One, and we have reason to believe they're real.
The list includes Crimson Skies and and Fusion Frenzy, as previously announced, but also various others. The full list includes:
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
- Dead to Rights
- Prince of Persia
- Red Faction II
- Ninja Gaiden Black
- Neowave: The King of Fighters
- Bloodrayne 2
- Grabbed by the Ghoulies
- Crimson Skies
- Fusion Frenzy
The addition of fan favorites like Ninja Gaiden Black and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic would truly make this a solid starting lineup, as Microsoft looks to bring as many classic titles into the modern Xbox One ecosystem as possible. Licensing issues for music and other assets will prevent many classic games from arriving on OG backwards compatibility, but hopefully, Microsoft will be able to convince rights holders that this is a potentially profitable venture.
We have reason to believe this list is real, because at around the same time, Twitter user GreggyLumps got in touch to let us know the store was being populated with OG Xbox games. We have been able to find some of them in the store, including the previously unannounced Dead to Rights, Neowave, and Red Faction II lending weight to the fact this list is accurate. As usual, take things with a pinch of salt until the official announcement, but WalkingCat is highly credible.
