Two classic Xbox 360 Japanese RPGs may be coming to the Xbox One

Microsoft's Xbox division leader Phil Spencer stated in an interview that two classic Xbox 360 RPGs from Japan, Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey, could join the Xbox One's lineup of backwards compatible games.

Wired reports:

Microsoft has been working hard to make more and more Xbox 360 games backward compatible with Xbox One — Spencer calls out the 360-exclusive Japanese role-playing games Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey as his most-wanted games, and says the team is working on getting them running on Xbox One as we speak — and those backward compatible games, too, will work on Scorpio.

Spencer stated that it's "theoretically very possible" to add support for playing games made for the first Xbox on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility but added, "We're not working on that right now."

Blue Dragon was released for the Xbox 360 in 2006 and Lost Odyssey followed in 2007. Both games were created by Japanese developer Mistwalker under the direction of Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of the Final Fantasy series.
