Trials Evolution gets backward-compatibility support on Xbox One

Microsoft has stuffed a couple more Xbox 360 games into its magical backward-compatibility funnel, turned the crank, and shot them out onto Xbox One at the other end. And as a result, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge and Trails Evolution are now playable on your modern-day Microsoft console.

Razor’s Edge, for those unfamiliar with its reasonably eventful history, started life on the Wii U and offered a notable overhaul of the original Ninja Gaiden 3, which had received a mixed reception when it released on Xbox 360 and PS3 earlier in 2012.

Many felt that developer Team Ninja had gone too far in streamlining the series’ systems in part three, and Razor’s Edge took the opportunity to reinstate a variety of features from previous, better-received Ninja Gaiden games – with enhancements including enriched combat, weapon and character upgrades, online co-op play, and the return of the series’ gory dismemberments, which had originally been ditched in Ninja Gaiden 3.
