Since its debut in 2015, Xbox One’therefore lineup of backwards compatible names has expanded console owners’ libraries to include the hits from the last generations of systems, together with two more titles having been declared for the platform today.
Microsoft’s Larry Hryb (aka “Important Nelson”) has announced that Earth Defense Force 2017 along with Sonic Adventure 2 are currently available as of now through backwards compatibility on the machine, enabling those with either a physical or digital version to access the games in their whole glory (at least at the instance for Earth Defense Force 2017, because Sonic Adventure 2 was only published digitally through XBLA).
After launching at November 2015, backwards compatibility on Xbox One has turned out to be a highly popular feature of the console, together with the complete number of backward compatible titles on the platform becoming near 400 titles now in time, together with assistance for a selection of original Xbox titles have been added just within the last few months.
Personally, the two of these titles are ones I’m pretty excited to revisit, as Earth Defense Force 2017 was frequently seen as a cult classic throughout the 360-generation, while Sonic Adventure 2 is a nostalgic classic that I really like going back to every once in a while (mostly to listen to the “City Escape” songs on repeat over and over again. Don’t judge me).
