The Xbox One has a growing list of backwards compatible games from the previous generation, be it from a retail release on the Xbox 360 or a digital title via the old Live Arcade. From it also comes a steady stream of Sonic games, with the classic games, Sonic the Fighters, and both episodes of Sonic 4 having been rereleased onto Microsoft’s modern console.
Earlier today, Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb announced that three more games are relaunching on Xbox One Backwards Compatibility today, including Sumo Digital’s Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. The second All-Stars racing game originally launched in November 2012 across several platforms to a positive critical reception.
With Transformed‘s newfound Xbox One availability, that leaves only the Sonic Adventure duology on Xbox Live Arcade and Sonic the Hedgehog 2006, Sonic Unleashed, and Sonic Generations from the Xbox 360 proper among the remaining core Sonic games that have not yet been made backwards compatible for the system. Here’s to hoping they get that same treatment in the near future!
If you already own the Xbox 360 disc, merely insert it into your Xbox One and start playing after the proper data is downloaded. If not, you can pick it up via the Xbox Games Store for $29.99 USD/£24.99/29,99€.
