Lost Odyssey receives Xbox One backward compatibility today

Along with Toy Story 3 and Guwange.

Three new titles are being added to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility library today.

Lost Odyssey tells the tale of a man forever tormented by a wayward strand of hair.

These include Mistwalker's cult-classic 2008 JRPG Lost Odyssey, a game about an immortal man with amnesia that we considered more than a cut above its peers in storytelling, in no small part due to its text-based short stories by acclaimed Japanese novelist Kiyoshi Shigematsu.

"Certainly, no other game has managed to capture such a breathtakingly elegiac tone, or created such a compelling account of the immortal longing for mortality," wrote Eurogamer contributor Dave McCarthy in his Lost Odyssey review.

Toy Story 3 is likewise coming to Xbox One today. Eurogamer contributor Dan Whitehead called the movie tie-in "a rare treat that appreciates the fine line between play and playing, and hints at a future where movie tie-ins could actually be something to look forward to" in his review.

Finally, Cave's 1999 arcade "bullet-hell" shooter Guwange is making the conversion to Microsoft's modern hardware. We liked that one too.
