A backwards compatible version of Tekken 6 is now available to play on the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility service alongside another game, called Mutant Storm: Empire. Both titles coming to the Xbox One were announced on the Twitter page of Larry Hryb, otherwise known as Major Nelson, Xbox’s director of programming.
Tekken 6 is the direct predecessor to Tekken 7, which is slated to be coming out sometime during 2017 after being limited to Japanese arcade machines for the past two years.
The game will be coming to Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC, so if you want to re-acquaint yourself with how to play Tekken and try and get your fighting-game reflexes back up to snuff, you can download the game (either by paying a modest price or for free if you still have the disc) and start practicing before Tekken 7’s release.
Along with the backwards compatible version of Tekken 6 that’s available, players can also pick up Mutant Storm: Empire, a multidirectional shoot-em-up game. A sequel to Mutant Storm: Reloaded, the game improved on the sequel by allowing players to go from room to room without having to wait through loading screens.
With six difficulty levels and even online co-op, Mutant Storm: Empire is a good game for you to play with a friend for a bit if you’re not in the mood for any triple-A games.
If you’re wanting to pick up either of these games, whether the backwards compatible version of Tekken 6 or Mutant Storm: Empire, you can find both of them on the Xbox One Store in its backwards compatibility section. These are merely the most recent examples of the games that have come to the backwards compatibility program since it began in 2014.
And even if you don’t want either of these games, there are hundreds of other backwards compatible games that you can pick up.
