Since its introduction in 2015, Xbox One’s lineup of backwards compatible titles has enlarged console owners’ libraries to include things like the hits from the last couple of generations of systems, with just two more names having been announced for the machine.
Microsoft’s Larry Hryb (aka “Important Nelson”) has declared that Earth Defense Force 2017 and Sonic Adventure 2 are now available as of now through backwards compatibility on the machine, enabling those with either a physical or electronic version to access the games in their full glory (at least in the case for Earth Defense Force 2017, since Sonic Adventure 2 was only released digitally through XBLA).
After launching at November 2015, backward compatibility on Xbox One has been demonstrated to be a highly common feature of the console, with the whole number of backward compatible names on the stage getting near 400 titles at this point in time, with support for a choice of original Xbox titles have been added just within the last few months.
Personally, the two of these names are ones I’m quite excited to revisit, as Earth Defense Force 2017 was often viewed as a cult classic during the 360-generation, whilst Sonic Adventure 2 really is really a nostalgic classic that I really like going back to every once in a while (mainly to hear the “City Escape” songs on repeat over and over again. Don’t judge me).
