Xbox One Backward Compatibility Adds Three New Games

"Duke Nukem Manhattan Project," "Garou: Mark of the Wolves," "Sonic the Fighters"

Microsoft is steadily adding new titles to its ever-growing Xbox One Backward Compatibility library. On Tuesday, the company made "Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project," "Garou: Mark of the Wolves," and "Sonic The Fighters" available to Xbox One gamers for some road trip down nostalgia lane.

All three games were released in the late 1990s to early 2000s and were ported to Xbox Live Arcade. Gamers who previously owned these titles should see them appear automatically in their library. Otherwise, the trio can be downloaded digitally through the Xbox Live marketplace or the new backward compatibility store.

"Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project"

"Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project" is a spin-off from Gear Software of the "Duke Nukem" series. The game was released in 2002 and joined the Xbox Live Arcade in 2010. It features protagonist Duke Nukem in another adventure involving babes, bullets, bombs, and "a mutant menace." It features 3D gameplay and 24 levels including Chinatown and Space.

"Garou: Mark of the Wolves"

SNK Playmore launched "Garou: Mark of the Wolves" as part of the "Fatal Fury" series and was originally to the Neo Geo system. It became available to Xbox Live in 2009. It features the son of Geese Howard, "Rock Howard," as protagonist and introduced "Just Defense," "TO.P.," and "Braking" systems. "Fatal Fury's" Terry Bogard, who raised Rock Howard, is joined by a cast of then new characters.

"Sonic The Fighters"

"Sonic The Fighters" is the oldest game of the three. The fighting game from SEGA was released in 1996 and became available to the Xbox Live Arcade in 2012. It features Sonic and his friends in classic arcade form in online versus mode and tournament play.

The latest addition brings the total number of backward-compatible titles to more than 150. Although Microsoft is continuously updating its list of Xbox One Backward Compatibility catalog, the community is still waiting for big titles like "Red Dead Redemption," "Call of Duty: Black Ops," and "Skate 3."
