Five New Titles Are Now Backwards Compatible

By Dave Horobin, 1 month ago
Following on from the announcement earlier this week that three more XBLA titles will now be playable on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility, the team at Xbox are at it again, this time with Major Nelson revealing on his Twitter account that a further five games have been added today.

Backwards Compatible

The five new additions are:

From the creative geniuses behind Devil May Cry and Resident Evil comes Bayonetta™, a game of 100% pure, unadulterated, climatic action. With powers far beyond the comprehension of mere mortals, our heroine Bayonetta fights countless enemies, evil forces and giant foes in brutal yet graceful ways.
de Blob 2
Blob's origins are mysterious, but he rolled up at the right place and the right time to be the hero that the Color Underground was looking for. Music surrounds him and color energy flows through him; with his touch Blob can literally make the world a better place. Blob represents individuality and determination. Blob is good hearted but lazy. He is often late, but he always comes through.
The classic ARKANOID comes back to life in XBLA! Destroy every block on screen by bouncing an Energy Ball against them with your Vaus!
Of Orcs and Men - Not available in all regions
Lead the revolution of the Orcs and Goblins! In a world at war, the vast Empire of Men tries to extend its domination over the territories of the Orcs and Goblins, who are systematically persecuted, enslaved and massacred. Through this great role-playing game, lead a fearsome Orc warrior, and a Goblin master of assassination and stealth. You have been appointed to fulfill an extremely dangerous mission, deep in enemy territory: to kill one man... the Emperor himself. Fight your way through a terribly hostile world to reach the objective of your quest. Level up, learn and develop powerful skills, and finally free your people from the yoke of the Empire!
Includes sleek graphics and cool sound effects! Reloaded with new features and a multiplayer mode!
