Today on Inside Xbox, Microsoft confirmed a long-requested addition to the Xbox One backward compatibility list: Ninja Gaiden II! Not only that, but the brutal action game is Xbox One X enhanced, meaning you'll get a higher resolution and pixel count if you're playing on the beefed-up console.
I was just thinking about Ninja Gaiden IIthe other day in light of Sekiro. Part of me feels newly emboldened to beat up some ninja dogs, but another more grounded part of me knows that it's going to be a long road ahead. I mean, it's been a decade. I'm going to be beyond rusty if I commit to a replay.
If you're feeling optimistic about your chances, look for back-compat support later today.
