Original Xbox Backwards compatibility is finally here. As announced to much fanfare at E3 2017 back in July, a lot of gamers have been waiting for this moment.
13 original titles will be available via digital download on the Xbox Store. If you still have a physical copy, simply insert the disc and wait for the game to install. Like all physical copy backward compatible titles, you will need the disc everytime you want to play the game.
Yes, RGM fans, one of those titles is Fuzion Frenzy. We know a few of you including this writer are excited to play this game on Xbox One. I’ve already blown the dust off my physical copy of Fuzion Frenzy and it will be ready to go once the update takes effect sometime on Tuesday, October 24, 2017.
Here is the first wave of original titles that will be available tomorrow:
- Bloodrayne 2
- Crimson Skies
- Dead to Rights
- Fuzion Frenzy
- Grabbed by the Ghoulies
- Neowave: The King of Fighters
- Ninja Gaiden Black
- Prince of Persia
- Red Faction II
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
That’s not all though, as these games are getting major resolution improvements, which vary based on which Xbox console they are being played in.
OG Xbox games run at 4X resolution on Xbox One S, and 16X resolution on Xbox One X – that's native, NOT upscaled! https://t.co/P3MIPVfhZc
