Xbox One Backward Compatibility Adds a Pair of Fan Favorites

Microsoft has just updated its Xbox One Backward Compatibility list, adding a pair of fan favorite titles from Bandai Namco. These are "Dark Souls" and "Tekken Tag Tournament 2," both of which were previously confirmed to join the program at some point.

The duo were added on Wednesday, following closely on the heels of Monday's trio. Microsoft added the original "Assassin's Creed" game from Ubisoft, Capcom's "Dark Void," and "GRID2," the sequel to the award-winning racing game from Codemasters.

"Tekken Tag Tournament 2" was leaked back in February along with Rockstar Games "Red Dead Redemption" and Konami's "Castlevania: Symphony of the Night." Microsoft's Larry Hryb, a.k.a. Major Nelson, clarified then that the games went live in error and were still under development. "Tekken Tag Tournament 2" joins "Castlevania: Symphony of the Night" which has already been added to the library of Xbox 360 games that are now playable on Microsoft's current-generation console. "Castlevania: Symphony of the Night" became available to Xbox One owners last week along with "Alan Wake" and "PAC-MAN."

Shortly after "Tekken Tag Tournament 2" leaked, "Dark Souls" was also spotted as a pre-order bonus for the latest entry in the series, "Dark Souls III." "Dark Souls" wasn't included in the Xbox One Backward Compatible titles at the time so the pre-order information hinted it would be added to the program soon and now it is. The "Dark Souls III" pre-order is still ongoing, so those interested in getting the two games can place their orders with Microsoft now for $59.99. "Dark Souls III" is scheduled to launch on April 12.

The latest addition brings the total Xbox One Backward Compatible games to 146. Microsoft is expected to release more games through the program as soon as they're ready. These include "Hitman: Absolution," "Call of Duty: Black Ops," "Halo Wars," "Skate 3" and the "BioShock" trio.
