Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Series is Backwards Compatible on Xbox One Just In Time for Halloween

The first Just Cause game too.

Konami's 3D Castlevania Lords of Shadow games all joined the backwards compatibility list on Xbox One today.

The Kojima-produced Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and its two follow-ups Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 are now available to play on Xbox One consoles alongside Avalanche's first Just Cause.

Only the first Lords of Shadow game was produced by Kojima Productions and all three games were developed by Spanish studio MercurySteam which later worked on Metroid: Samus Returns for the 3DS.

While we liked Samus Returns quite a bit, opinion is mixed on the Lords of Shadow games. Our review for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 awarded it a 2.5 out of 5 stars but some of us find the first Lords of Shadows quite endearing.

With Lords of Shadow coming to Xbox One you can have yourself a good ol' Castlevania marathon as Castlevania Requiem is available now on PS4. So if you have both consoles well you're off to the vampiric races.
