Ninja Gaiden 2 Joins Xbox One Backwards Compatible Library

Another classic Xbox 360 game is joining Xbox One’s backwards compatible library. During the latest Inside Xbox livestream, Microsoft announced the brutal action game Ninja Gaiden II is now playable on the company’s current-gen console, and it–along with a handful of other existing BC games–has been enhanced for Xbox One X.

Ninja Gaiden II originally released for Xbox 360 in 2008. The game featured numerous improvements over its predecessor, including an enhanced combat system that allowed players to dismember enemies. We awarded it an 8/10 in our original Ninja Gaiden II review, writing, “It’s flashier and it’s bloodier, and when those enhancements are in full force, the game offers the best action available on the platform.”

If you still own a physical copy of Ninja Gaiden II, you can now pop the disc into your Xbox One and begin playing. As previously mentioned, the game is also enhanced on Xbox One X. Microsoft says the game runs at a higher resolution and features nine times the pixel count when played on the more powerful console.

In addition to Ninja Gaiden II, Microsoft is rolling out Xbox One X updates for five previous backwards compatible games, including three Splinter Cell titles–Double Agent, Conviction, and Blacklist–and both Fable 2 and 3. You can see the full list of Xbox One BC games here.

Microsoft made a number of other big announcements during Tuesday’s Inside Xbox broadcast. The company confirmed that it is bundling Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass together into one cheaper subscription called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. It also unveiled the long-rumored disc-less Xbox One S console.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
