The latest batch of Backward Compatible games brings Mega Man and more


12, 2017

The Backward Compatibility program lets Xbox One gamers enjoy plenty of their favorite Xbox 360 titles on their latest system. Today’s batch brings in both Mega Man 9 and 10, as well as Beat’n Groovy.

Mega Man 9 and 10 both pay homage to the first 6 Mega Man titles, featuring NES style music and graphics, as well as some pretty retro art. If you also own the Mega Man Legacy Collection, these are a faithful continuation of the same style that both Mega Man 7 and 8 dropped. This also means that you can play almost all of the original Mega Man games on your Xbox One, excluding spinoffs like Mega Man & Bass.

Beat’n Groovy is a music game based off the Japanese Pop’n Music series of arcade games. It originally arrived on Xbox Live back in 2008, and features colorful graphics. It also had a special mode that let you play with an Xbox Live Vision camera, which is obviously not supported on the Xbox One.

You can find each game in the Xbox Marketplace by following the links below. As always, you won’t need to purchase these again to play them on your Xbox One – you just need to check the Ready to Install section in My Games & Apps.
