Microsoft has unveiled the latest batch of Xbox 360 titles to gain backward compatibility support on Xbox One. Now added to the ever-growing list are Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Sonic Unleashed, and Aliens vs Predator.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is certainly an interesting place to start, given its colourful history. The fantasy action-adventure RPG was developed by 38 Studios and Big Huge Games, designed by Elder Scrolls veteran Ken Rolston, and released by EA in 2012.
Despite its long gestation period, high-profile development, and big-name publisher, it wasn’t quite the success it needed to be. Financial difficulties eventually forced its developer to close, leading to the cancellation of a second project, an MMO set in the Amalur universe.
