The Xbox One’s backward compatibility program is officially one year old, and Microsoft has commemorated the occasion with the addition of a new game and a trailer celebrating the lineup.

The video is a joyous montage of some of the Xbox 360’s greatest titles, like Mass Effect 2, Red Dead Redemption, Portal 2, and more. The video appeals to nostalgia, stating, “Saying goodbye is hard?with Xbox One Backward Compatibility, you don’t have to.” Even the cheesy rendition of Pat Benatar’s “We Belong” pulls on the heartstrings a little bit.

Along with the video, Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb announced new additions to the lineup. Scarygirl, an action-platformer from Square Enix, is now playable on Xbox One. It’s got an awesome art style that you won’t want to pass by.

Additionally?as previously reported?the hugely requested Skate 3 was also added to the library of games playable via backward compatibility.
