Microsoft has some major news to share with us today, announcing that both Silent Hill: HD Collection and Silent Hill Homecoming will be available soon on Xbox One through the backward compatibility service.
The news comes from Major Nelson’s Twitter account, where he revealed the release of Silent Hill: HD Collection and Silent Hill Homecoming to Microsoft’s backwards compatibility. Silent Hill Downpour is already available through the service, giving this franchise as well a considerable amount of titles available.
Here are all the Konami titles available on Xbox One through Backward compatibility:
- Beat’n Groovy
- Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
- Frogger 2
- Hard Corps: Uprising
- Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction
- Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
- Rocket Knight
- Silent Hill Homecoming
- Silent Hill Downpour
- Silent Hill: HD Collection
- Super Kontra
What you have to do in order to play these games plus hundreds of other Xbox 360 and original Xbox games on your Xbox One is either own the old retail versions of them or buy them now. Just insert the disk and you’re more or less set to go.
The most recent titles to have hit Xbox One Backward Compatibility are Dante’s Inferno, R.U.S.E, Overlord 1 and 2 and Assassin’s Creed Liberation. These aren’t the only ones though as Microsoft is adding more games frequently, making their catalog even bigger week by week.
This is the second time today that hear news about Konami after the company announced a new update for Metal Gear Solid 5 as well. Lately, a fanmade Silent Hills P.T remake has been shut down by the company, however, its creator revealed that the representative expressed their desire to start working on new games again to him.
This is hopeful to say the list, while Konami holds the rights to some of the most iconic franchises up to date. Who wouldn’t want to see a new legit Metal Gear Solid or Silent Hill title in the future? We know we do.
