Castlevania: Harmony of Despair Backward Compatible From Today

By Sam Quirke,
Castlevania: Harmony of Despair is joining the Xbox Backward Compatibility program from today. Though the switch does not appear to be live in all regions, a recent tweet from Major Nelson has confirmed the news.

While not the most acclaimed entry in the veteran series, the 2010 XBLA title still sits at a fairly respectable 7 user score on Metacritic and has earned a 4-star average from our own community. While retaining some of the classic look and features of the series, this iteration features 6 player online co-op. You can check out your local prices and download links from the box below.
