Zone of the Enders, Rumble Roses XX join Xbox backward compatibility

Today, Larry Hryb, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, announced that Xbox 360 games Rumble Roses XX and Zone of the Enders HD Collection are now backward compatible on Xbox One. The two games aren't the heavy-hitters fans were hoping for, but they're still a lot of fun.

Backward compatibility opens Xbox One to a huge variety of games, spanning three generations of Microsoft's consoles. Despite hardware differences, it remains an outstanding feature, allowing a select library of older games to be played on Xbox One. While the majority of them are Xbox 360 titles, there are also some original Xbox games in there.

Rumble Roses XX

Rumble Roses XX is a female professional wrestling fighting game developed by Konami. It's quite a good game once you can get past the way characters are depicted.

Zone of the Enders HD Collection

Zone of the Enders is an action franchise from Hideo Kojima. The title requires a lot of skill to master, and looks great even to this day, even though the resolution is quite low on Xbox 360.

  • "it's a good game once you get past the..." What?
  • Exploitation of the female figure, pretty much. I'm a little ashamed to say this, but I've been hoping for this game to eventually show up on the list. As bad of a game as it is, it's a fun time-waster with friends and the amount of cheese in the story mode never gets old.
  • Sorry, I just added a "..." after it. It's pretty much exactly what "fitchalcyone" just said.
  • There are a ton of nice looking announcements from TGS. Unfortunately, almost none of them include any Xbox support. So much for those visits to Japan.
  • I'm surprised about that too. I thought at least Judge Eyes.
  • Microsoft should start holding TGS showcases of their own, if for no other reason than to show they’re really taking Japan and their support seriously, and even if there isn’t much to show. Have something there. Maybe it could be used to gain some third party support by promising them time on the big stage if they bring their games to the platform. Anything is better than nothing.
  • Most J-devs don't do Xbox is because Xbox in Japan is close to no existence and they know their games don't have global (esp westen market) appeal.
    Capcom does Xbox because RE has a global appeal.Some other IP like Dragon Ball has global appeal.SE now does Xbox because it's trying to become a global publisher / studio.* Comparing with SE and Sega, Capcom isn't really in a good shape.* Many arcade games run on Windows. e.g. Border Break. BB recently got a PS4 port. Xbox version is only possible if BB does well on PS4. XB org and 360 era taught Japanese retailers that they don't need a foreign console. And then gamers and retailers taught j-devs that they don't need a foreign console. It's a bad cycle. But, console market in Japan is shrinking.
