8 New Games Come to Backwards Compatibility

Confirmed after leak

Xbox’s Major Nelson has confirmed an earlier leak that 8 new games will be arriving on Xbox via backwards compatibility today.

The leak came yesterday from Twitter user @ekim_gaf, the same person who outed the Gears of War Xbox One S early. No doubt, at this point, Microsoft will be trying to locate the source of all these early leaks. They should probably give Nintendo a ring and hire their resident plumber.


The games included this time around are:

  • Bionic Commando Rearmed 2
  • Capcom Arcade Cabinet
  • Crystal Defenders
  • Fret Nice
  • NeoGeo Battle Coliseum
  • PACMAN Museum
  • Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode 1
  • Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode 2

There are no triple-A titles to speak of, but plenty of old arcade classics for you to enjoy on your warm summer evenings.
