Sonic Adventure 2 And Earth Defense Force 2017 Are Now Backwards Compatible On Xbox One

There might only be few Xbox One owners that actually take advantage of the “>Backwards Compatibility on their console but, Microsoft won’t let the service be forgotten. According to Major Nelson’s announcement, two new games are coming to the Xbox One:  Earth Defense Force 2017 and the Dreamcast classic Sonic Adventure 2.

Earth Defense Force 2017 will be available through its physical disc, instantly bootable and ready to play, while Sonic Adventure 2 will be downloadable through your library if you owned it digitally.

Sonic Adventure 2 is a beloved platformer featuring our childhood hero Sonic the Hedgehog. The game features over 150 unique missions across 30 action filled stages, so replaying it on your Xbox One or Xbox One X sounds like a plan.

On the other hand, Earth Defense Force 2017 is a third-person shooter developed by Sandlot for the Xbox 360, now coming to the Xbox One. It is the follow-up to Global Defence Force and revolves around the operations of the Earth Defense Force, a unified multinational military organization sponsored by nearly every country, is established in case the aliens prove to be hostile.

Even though Backwards Compatibility is not used much by Xbox One users but, that certainly does not mean that this feature should be eliminated entirely as the interest in this feature still exist among the gaming community even if does not make much of the playtime.
