Originally published back in 2007 for the Xbox 360, Blue Dragon is a RPG with some heavy heritage. Published by Microsoft Studios and developed by some of the same team that worked on classics like Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger, the game had a lot going for it. It was well received, and currently has a 79 on Metacritic. It also seems that the Xbox team is currently working on bringing it to backwards compatibility on the Xbox One. Phil Spencer’s confirmed on Twitter that the team is currently working on it.
This doesn’t mean that the game will come to backwards compatibility for certain, but it’s incredibly likely that it will end up there. You can see the game’s description below.
Famed game producer Hironobu Sakaguchi of Mistwalker and developer Artoon present the highly anticipated Xbox 360™ exclusive Blue Dragon. Featuring the character design of Akira Toriyama of Dragon Ball Z and music by Nobuo Uematsu of Final Fantasy, Blue Dragon is an epic role-playing game that centers on a young boy named Shu and several of his friends.
These unlikely heroes possess the power to control phantom shadows that mirror the actions of their masters, giving Shu and his comrades miraculous strength and magical powers.
The warriors can create and develop their combat styles by utilizing different types of Shadow Change, including Sword, Assassin, and Power Magic. Shu and his friends must use the shadows as weapons and wield their skills to save their world from impending doom.
Encountering various people on a planet where numerous ancient ruins remain, the characters and their shadows travel through a world full of mysteries and illusions, where the slightest touch can cause reactions of unparalleled magnitude.
