We're into another week, which means it's time for more games to be added to the Xbox One backward compatible list. The latest additions include four new Xbox 360 games, including the likes of Virtua Fighter 2, Costume Quest 2, Quantum Conundrum, and Frontlines: Fuel of War.

One of the most notable additions is probably Virtua Fighter 2, which is simply a port of the classic fighting series for the Xbox Live Arcade. Originally an arcade 90s-era arcade release, and later available for consoles, Virtua Fighter 2 includes ten fighters, and online mode, and more. The game can be picked up digitally for $4.99 on the Xbox 360 Marketplace. (opens in new tab)
Costume Quest 2 (opens in new tab), meanwhile, is a unique little RPG from Double Fine that follows a group of kids whose Halloween costumes transform them into warriors. The wacky story takes you through dimensional rifts as you collect candy and battle in spooky settings.
Finally, Quantum Conundrum (opens in new tab) has you tapping into the power of an "Interdimensional Shift Device" to move between dimensions on a mission to save your uncle. Frontlines: Fuel of War (opens in new tab), on the other hand, is a typical first person shooter based in an environment of massive, all-out war between Western and Eastern coalitions.
If you already own any of these games, you should be able to install them and start playing right away on your Xbox One. Otherwise, you can grab all four from the Xbox 360 marketplace.

I'm curious whether the XBO Kinect hardware is backward-compatible with old Kinect 360 games.
It's not unfortunately.
Really wish they'd make that happen. There are dozens of fantastic Kinect Xbox 360 games I'd love to play on Kinect Xbox One, including what is possibly the greatest Kinect game of all time in Child of Eden.
They brought Costume Quest 2? Why? There is already an XBOX One version available. They should have made the first one BC. My daughter and I love the games and wish we could play the first one again since our 360 died.
I read "Virtua Fighter 2 and 3" and was like "WHOA, when was there a Xbox port of Virtua Fighter 3!?!?!"
I recently bought a used Sega Saturn, and I was minutes away from buying Virtua Fighter 2 for it when I saw this! Now if only Sega would rerelease the Panzer Dragoon series for the Xbox One...
