The latest batch of games has been added to the Xbox One backward compatibility program, and this time around, it’s a weird bunch.
First up is the rhythm action game Child of Eden, the prequel project to Rez. The game is presented on an experiment in synesthesia, combining sound, visuals, and touch, and was originally one of the first games to work with the Xbox 360’s Kinect.
Next is KOF Sky Stage, an arcade-style vertically scrolling shooter that stars, of all characters, the cast of King of Fighters. Players have three inputs with which to shoot, use an ultimate technique, or send out a bomb.
Third and finally, there’s Goat Simulator, a wacky sandbox-style game where all the fun comes from pushing the limits of the game’s insane physics while running around and licking everything as a goat.

It’s a truly odd batch of games, but for those looking beyond the usual RPG and shooter offerings, one or more of these titles could be worth picking up. As always, if you already owned them on the Xbox 360, they’ll now be available to play on your Xbox One.
Don’t forget to check out the full list of other titles now available as part of the backward compatibility Program, available at Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb’s site.
