This week’s Xbox Backwards Compatibility titles update

backwards compatibility januaryThe Xbox One Backwards Compatibility list has updated yet again with five new additional titles this week. They may not be the most highly requested titles, but there’s always someone out there who will be overjoyed by certain releases.

The first three games announced earlier in the week come in the form of Sega’s virtua fighter clone Sonic The Fighters, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, and 2D platforming shooter, Duke Nukem Manhattan Project. Duke Nukem’s title was first released in 2002 and was since ported to the Xbox 360 as a digital download. It’s by no means as awesome as Duke Nukem 3D, but it still reviewed well and could be a bit of fun to revisit.

Sonic Fighters sees Sonic and friends battle it out in 3D arenas similar to Virtua Fighter or Tekken, but wasn’t really a deep fighting experience. It was made for the arcades but still released on the Sega Saturn and Xbox 360.

Garou: Mark of the Wolves was a NeoGeo and Dreamcast title released in 1999 by SNK, and is part of the Fatal Fury series of fighters.

Yesterday, two more titles joined the list, bringing the weekly update to five titles. These new titles included Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine, which was a Games with Gold title last year so you may have that Ready to Install, and the second title was Doom 3: BFG Edition, which is only available to purchase on disc. There was never a digital version. It’s worth noting that this version of Doom also included the first two Doom titles in the pack.

You can buy these games via the Xbox Store’s backwards compatibility listing following the recent Xbox One update if you’re interested in them, or if you own any of them digitally, just go to My Games & Apps, and over on the Ready to Install tab you should see them listed.
