Lost Odyssey (and more) come to Xbox One via Backwards Compatibility


The Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program lets you play a variety of Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One, and it keeps on growing. The last addition to the program was Call of Duty 3, and now three more games are joining the fray. The most important (and most requested) one of today’s batch happens to be Lost Odyssey, a Japanese RPG which initially came to the west back in 2008. The other titles in today’s lineup are Toy Story 3 and Guwange, which should be nice for anyone who owns Guwange.

Lost Odyssey stars Kaim, an immortal being suffering from amnesia. It’s a traditional turn based JRPG, and like a good deal of those, it’ll take you a long, long time to get through it. It’s a game that will definitely appeal to most people who enjoy some good, lengthy turn based fun. Sadly, though, it’s disc only, and will run you over $70 for a new copy on Amazon.

Toy Story 3 is a movie tie in game, and it’s probably the least interesting of the bunch. That being said, though, for a movie tie in game, it’s generally considered a good movie tie in game. It’s a platformer that follows the plot of the movie, and might be a nice game to play if you’re either a big fan of the movies or have kids. If you’d like to buy it from the Xbox Store, you can find it here.

Guwange is a classic shoot ’em up Cave, a company famous for making games in that genre. It’s a port of the 1999 arcade version of the game, and you can find it in the Xbox Store here.
