Through Twitter, Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb announced that it is now possible to play 2 titles of Xbox 360 on Xbox One thanks to the backwards compatibility, we refer to the Forza Horizon and Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse.
Microsoft recently announced that two other games have entered the list of backward compatible titles with Xbox One. The news came through a Tweet of Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb. We are talking about Castle of Illusion and Forza Horizon (free with Games with Gold in September).
So, Forza Horizon is part of the Games alignment with Gold in September, and that is why Microsoft was quick to include this game in the backwards compatibility program. If you own the game, simply insert the disc into the Xbox One or look in the section of My Games and Applications.
Meanwhile, Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse is now backwards comaptible, but will disappear from the digital store of Xbox in next month September 2nd. If you want to enjoy this title we recommend you to purchase it as soon as possible, so it will be part of your purchases and you can download it whenever you want.
