A whopping five games have just been added to the Xbox One backward compatibility lineup.

As announced by Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb on Twitter, 3D Ultra Minigolf, Golf: Tee It Up!, Gin Rummy, Contra, and RoboBlitz will all be appearing on the backward compatible list today. In the case of Contra, that’s the 2006 re-released version of the game that appeared on the Xbox Live Arcade.

If you owned any of the five games on the Xbox 360, then you can dive right in and start playing right now. Otherwise, they can be purchased from the Xbox Store and enjoyed for the first time on the Xbox One.

Don’t forget to check out the full list of backward compatible titles, available now on Major Nelson’s site.
