Now you can revisit Resident Evil Code: Veronica X and Misplaced Planet on Xbox One
The timing could not be significantly better right here. Simply as many people are feeling renewed affection for the Resident Evil collection due to final month’s good RE2 remake, Capcom and Microsoft have made Resident Evil Code: Veronica X backward appropriate on Xbox One. In case you personal the Xbox 360 model of that sport, a replay is perhaps so as quickly (after you burn by means of Nemesis first, in fact).
Code: Veronica lately got here up in a employees dialog about how among the sport’s extra, uh, off-the-rails scenes may translate to a modern-day remake. Tacky meals for thought.
A couple of different Capcom titles are additionally rounding out the Xbox One backward compatibility record: Misplaced Planet: Excessive Situation (and Colonies), Misplaced Planet 2, and Misplaced Planet 3. You strap right into a mech, shoot at large alien beast limbs till they crumble, and attempt to keep topped up on life-sustaining thermal power.
Misplaced Planet is a type of collection that I do know I performed and loved on the time however could not inform you something substantial about these days. It is like my reminiscences have been erased. There’s an actual “Yeah I may replay that on a whim!” issue that makes these perfect candidates for backward compatibility.
Whereas we’re seemingly on a Capcom kick, I am hoping for Asura’s Wrath to indicate up subsequent on Xbox One in order that former Destructoid editor Kyle MacGregor can cease haunting me on-line. He’ll by no means let me overlook.
