Xbox’s Larry Hryb has announced a new batch of Xbox One Backwards Compatibility games are being launched today.
A total of three will be made available today via both disc install and digital library.
Child of Eden, Goat Simulator & KOF SKY STAGE are coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today, Microsoft have confirmed.
As usual, each games has a certain amount of votes on the official Xbox One leaderboards, with The King of Fighters: Sky Stage ranking in lowest this week.
Both KOF SKY STAGE and Goat Simulator have clocked in less than a 1,000 votes each, making Child of Eden the most wanted of the bunch.
Child of Eden is a rhythm action game created by Tetsuya Mizuguchi, which was originally launched on Xbox 360 in 2011.
“Child of Eden thrusts the player into the center of a battle to save Project Lumi, a mission to reproduce a human personality inside Eden, the archive of all human memories. As the project nears completion, the archive is invaded by an unknown virus. The player’s mission is to save Eden from the virus, restoring hope and peace.”
Goat Simulator is a third-person perspective action video game launched in 2014 by developers Coffee Stain Studios.
“Gameplay-wise, Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. It has been compared to an old-school skating game, except instead of being a skater, you’re a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff. Destroy things with style, such as doing a backflip while headbutting a bucket through a window, and you’ll earn even more points!”
The King of Fighters: Sky Stage was released in 2012 for the Xbox 360 and published by SNK Playmore.
It follows news of original Xbox Backwards Compatibility games coming soon from Microsoft.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer said that original Xbox games are close, and that fans should expect some unannounced titles to be included.
Speaking to Gamespot, he said: “We’re close, we’re really close.
“I have a little dashboard I go to and I can see all the games [and] where they are in getting approvals in the pipeline.
“I know the games that are coming for the original Xbox but I don’t think we’ve announced them all. We have to do this in partnership with partners, but we’re still on track. I feel really good. The games look great.”
Original Xbox Backwards Compatibility was announced at E3 2017.
