Xbox One backwards compatibility gains 3 new games, now 300 strong

Three new games have now been added to the steadily growing list of backwards compatible titles for the Xbox One. Coming along in this latest batch are Shadowrun, Space Ark, and Shotest Shogi. All three are fairly small titles, but it's good to see the list growing nonetheless.

If you're unfamiliar with these three games, Shadowrun is a first-person arena shooter available for $15 on the Xbox Marketplace (opens in new tab). Meanwhile, Space Ark serves up some arcade fun for $9.99 (opens in new tab), tasking you with collecting fruit with bouncing animals and raising your high score to terraform planets (yes, that's as silly as it sounds). Lastly, Shotest Shogi lets you try your hand at the Japanese board game for $9.99 (opens in new tab).

Interestingly, these three additions have officially pushed the number of supported backwards compatible games to 300. That's a pretty solid achievement, especially considering it comes just a little over a year after the feature initially launched on Xbox One with only 100 supported titles.

  • Always great to see more games added! Shame the licensing doesn't allow Microsoft to open it up to all games, but I applaud their efforts here.
  • I cant install shadowrun...why!!!?
  • Shadowrun was pretty awesome. Cross platform multiplayer!
  • Really shadowrun and not Quake4, Quake Arcade Arena,or unreal tournament.
  • Wolfenstein please.
  • I thought the shadowrun servers got shut down years ago.
  • Lol still hoping for Mafia 2
  • Great game.... Loved  with all DLCs for it
  • People bitched about incompatibility. Give it a few years and now everyone doesn't care.
  • I find it amazing what Microsoft continues to implement in servicing their customer base. We wanted backwards compatibility and we have it. I've used it to play some of my favorites from 360.
  • None of my favorites from xbox360 are on there... Please, bring us the likes of Tenchu!! That game was awesome!
