You can now revisit Resident Evil Code: Veronica X and Lost Planet on Xbox One

The timing couldn't be much better here. Just as many of us are feeling renewed affection for the Resident Evilseries thanks to last month's brilliant RE2remake, Capcom and Microsoft have made Resident Evil Code: Veronica Xbackward compatible on Xbox One. If you own the Xbox 360 version of that game, a replay might be in order soon (after you burn through Nemesis first, of course).
Code: Veronica recently came up in a staff conversation about how some of the game's more, uh, off-the-rails scenes might translate to a modern-day remake. Cheesy food for thought.
Lost Planetis one of those series that I know I played and enjoyed at the time but couldn't tell you anything substantial about nowadays. It's like my memories have been erased. There's a real "Yeah I could replay that on a whim!" factor that makes these ideal candidates for backward compatibility.
While we're seemingly on a Capcom kick, I'm hoping for Asura's Wrathto show up next on Xbox One so that former Destructoid editor Kyle MacGregor can stop haunting me online. He'll never let me forget.
