Microsoft continues to enhance the list of games available under their Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Program when gaming boss revealed the upcoming addition of “Blue Dragon."

Spencer informally confirmed the coming of “Blue Dragon” when he was asked by a random fan of its possible addition. He said that the game is indeed coming though he wasn’t allowed to announce it, a bit of pun on the side via Only Singleplayer.

Confirmed with no release date

With the soon-to-be-added “Blue Dragon” to the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility list, the number of Xbox 360 games playable on the Xbox One balloons 200. The complete list of games under the program can be viewed here.

The only catch with the revelation is that Spencer did not provide an actual release date meaning Xbox One gamers will have to wait for the official addition of “Blue Dragon." The announcement follows the addition of three XBLA games - “Nin2-Jump”, “New Rally-X” and “Mr. Driller Online”.

Classics from 2006 to 2011

One thing that “Nin2-Jump”, “New Rally-X”, “Mr. Driller Online” and “Blue Dragon share is that most of them came out somewhere between the middle and early 2011.

“Blue Dragon” is an open world role-playing game that was comprised of three discs. It originally came out in 2007 and is considered one the more familiar game titles developed by Mistwalker.

While the four new game titles are something to look forward to, gamers are eager to know when other big games would be made available. Among the highly awaited game titles include the “Bioshock” series, “Skate 3”, “Alan Wake”, “Assassin’s Creed” and “Gears of War 3”.

One popular game title that is being awaited is “Red Dead Redemption." There is no official word about the game for now and remains afloat together with other highly demanded game titles.
