Four New Games Are Now Backwards Compatible On Xbox One
Another day, another group of games being added to the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility program. Today though, we’re getting not one, not two, but four new games, and one of them is the original version of an insanely popular fighting game that helped bring the genre roaring back last generation.
In case that last paragraph didn’t make it anymore obvious, Street Fighter IV is the big game being added to the Xbox One’s list of backwards compatible games; the other three games include Luxor 2, Madballs in Babo: Invasion, and Poker Smash. As usual, the news comes from Major Nelson’s Twitter page. It’s important to note that the version of Street Fighter IV that’s available starting today is the original version of the game and not the many versions of the game, such as Super, Arcade, or even the recent (and last version) of the game Ultra Street Fighter IV. No word on when we’ll get those versions, but considering the original is now on the service, it’s safe to assume we’ll get those versions sometime down the road.
As usual, if you own these games digitally, they’ll show up automatically in your library. Otherwise, you can download them from the Xbox Live Marketplace. Likewise, if you still own a physical copy of Street Fighter IV, you can just pop it into your Xbox One and play it to your heart’s content.
