Hack and slash action-adventure Xbox 360 game Ninja Gaiden II is now backwards compatible with the Xbox One, Microsoft announced during its Inside Xbox presentation today.
The 2008 title will also be Xbox One X Enhanced which means higher resolution, faster load times, and better performance when playing on an Xbox One X. Since the game is backwards compatible, anyone who still has their old Ninja Gaiden II disc can simply insert it into an Xbox One and download an update before playing.
Team Ninja’s Ninja Gaiden II first released for the Xbox 360 in 2008 and was published by Microsoft. Ninja Gaiden II Sigma, an enhanced port of the game, was released in 2009 for the PlayStation 3 and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus for the PlayStation Vita in 2013. Both ports were published by Koei Tecmo.
Microsoft also announced during the stream that five other Xbox 360 games would receive Xbox One X enhancements. The games are Fable 2, Fable 3, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction, and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Double Agent.
All the games listed above have already been Xbox One backwards compatible. The games join 25 other Xbox 360 titles, including Fable Anniversary, that have received Xbox One X enhanced features.
