Xbox fans that have been looking for a bit of vintage in their backwards compatibility games can now get their wish with the revelation that Mega Man 9, Mega Man 10, and Beat’n Groovy are now available as three brand new backwards compatible games that have come to the Xbox One.

Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 are the two newest games in the Mega Man series, and signaled a return to the eight-bit style and visuals of the original Mega Man games when they were released on previous-gen consoles such as the original Wii, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.

While no Mega Man games have been made since then, Mega Man has since begun making appearances in other franchises, such as Super Smash Bros Wii U (and its 3DS counterpart) and in Marvel vs Capcom Infinite.

However, Beat’n Groovy may be the sort of game that you’ll want to give a pass. Originally an Xbox 360 game that was released on the Arcade, the game was an attempt to capitalize on the success of Pop’n Music, another rhythm game that wasn’t released outside of Japan.

Unfortunately, the attempt wasn’t appreciated by many, and the game was critically panned by a lot of reviewers for its bad design and terrible (and extremely short, only nine songs) song list.

The announcement for these new backwards compatible games came from the official Twitter of Larry Hryb, otherwise known as Major Nelson, who is normally the one to announce new additions to the Xbox One’s Backwards Compatibility list, which was first implemented in 2014 after being announced at that year’s E3.

If you’re a Mega Man fan and so want to download Mega Man 9 and 10 onto your Xbox One, you can find them in the Xbox One Store now, though you might want to avoid Beat’n Groovy and try and find a better rhythm game.
