Street Fighter IV, Poker Smash And More Added To Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Library

Four more Xbox 360 games have been added to the Xbox One’s existing library of backwards compatible titles today, bringing the grand total up to well over 300 games. The new arrivals, as confirmed by Microsoft’s Major Nelson, are Luxor 2, Madballs in Babo: Invasion, Poker Smash and Street Fighter IV. As usual, if you already own any of games making the jump, they should appear in your library, ready to be downloaded. Alternatively, you purchase all of them via the official store.

Personally, I’m ecstatic to see Street Fighter IV finally make its way to the service. Capcom’s beat ’em up was one of the only games stopping my 360 from being retired and returned to its box for a life of solitude, a scenario I’m sure rings true for many who are still waiting for that one game to be added to the service so they can do the same. Given, too, that Capcom opted to release Street Fighter V as a PlayStation 4/PC-only title, its predecessor is likely the only Capcom fighter Xbox One owners are going to have access to until Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite rolls around later this year.

New titles are added to the backwards compatibility service on a regular basis, with the most recent update prior to this one having added, among others, Dead Rising 2: Case West and Case Zero. If you want an idea of how successful the feature has been for the console, Xbox boss Phil Spencer revealed recently that nearly half of all Xbox One owners have played backwards compatible games since the service was made available in 2015. Impressive.
