This week, we got three backwards compatible games added to the Xbox One feature, and now as an extra festive gift, there are two more. Not only that, but one of them is available absolutely free until the end of the month, and it’s a stellar one!
Lost Odyssey, a game which spanned over 4 discs is a Japanese RPG created by the Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi. It released in 2008 outside of Japan (Dec 2007 over there), and became one of the Xbox 360’s most revered RPGs. You can pick it up for free between now and the 31st of December, and you’d be silly not to.
” The story follows Kaim, one of a select group of “immortals” who have lost their memories: while confronting threats generated by the world’s approaching magical industrial revolution, he must also face the pain brought by his returning memories. The gameplay features many staples of the genre, such as navigation using a world map, random encounters, and a turn-based battle system.”
The second game added thanks to backwards compatibility is Blue Dragon, a similar game that required 3 discs. Blue Dragon is based on a design by Final Fantasy series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, who also supervised development and wrote the plot.
Taking place in a fictional open-world environment, the story of Blue Dragon focuses on five friends (Shu, Jiro, Kluke, Zola, and Marumaro) as they travel across the world to confront Nene, the evil ruler of the Grand Kingdom.
