The ever-increasing list of games becoming backward compatible for the Xbox One welcomes a new title in the form of Ninja Gaiden 2.

Finally, Ryu Hayabusa brings his coveted sequel to the next generation months after the original Xbox game came forward. Therefore allowing fans of the franchise to sit through the series on one console.


The series, best known for its visceral gore and devastatingly brutal difficulty is a game for fans of Dark Souls and Devil May Cry, blending the raw difficulty of the From Software title with the panache of Capcom’s demon-killing extravaganza.

Not only is Team Ninja’s 2008 hit sequel ready for owners of the game whether digitally or physically, will be glad to see that Ninja Gaiden 2 will be treated with a visual upgrade too. Other titles receiving this treatment will include the Splinter Cell series too.

I have had my own experiences with Ninja Gaiden 2 which became quite violent so I may need to proceed with caution. The last time I played resulted in my controller getting hurled into a fireplace. Are you maybe more excited than me? Let us know in the comments below!
