Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance now backwards compatible on Xbox One

Along with Screamride.

Bayonetta and Vanquish developer PlatinumGames' Metal Gear Solid hack-and-slash spin-off Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is now available as part of the Xbox One's backwards compatibility library.

Fun fact: enter the Konami code in the title screen and you can play the ultra-hard 'Revengeance' difficulty right from the start. It's a beast!

Originally released in 2013, Revengeance is among PlatinumGames' top titles. Eurogamer contributor Rich Stanton called it "a thrilling and almost flawless fighting game" in his Revengeance review. Indeed it's one I put a frankly embarrassing number of hours into.

Also receiving Xbox One backwards compatibility today is Screamride, Frontier Developments' 2015 spiritual successor to Roller Coaster Tycoon.

Eurogame contributor Chris Schilling found it a pleasant enough romp, but one that he deemed "a few minor tweaks away from something special" in his Screamride review.
