Resident Evil Code: Veronica X, Lost Planet Series Come to Xbox One Backward Compatibility

Capcom brings some old games to Xbox One.

An entire Xbox 360 series is coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today: Capcom's Lost Planet. Lost Planet: Extreme Condition (including its Colonies edition, which includes new multiplayer components), Lost Planet 2, and Lost Planet 3 are all hitting the backward compatible service. But that's not the only new Capcom-related addition.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica X is also coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility. The version of Code: Veronica coming back to Xbox is the HD remaster of the extended edition first released on Dreamcast and PlayStation 2. Originally, Code: Veronica was a Dreamcast exclusive, before it was revitalized for additional platforms, leading into its remaster on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Code: Veronica isn't the most beloved Resident Evil, but it's a worthwhile adventure; especially if you're hungry for more after this year's Resident Evil 2 remake.

The premise for the Lost Planet series is a humanity abandoning Earth after global warming and pollution deem it uninhabitable. On a new earth-like planet, the hero is sent battling against aggressive aliens and an evil corporation. The Lost Planet series has always received middling reviews, with its third entry ranked the lowest on Metacritic. Of them all, the original is the one most worth dipping back into.

The Xbox One Backward Compatibility service has been one of the best things about Xbox One since it began in 2015. In 2017, Microsoft said roughly 50 percent of Xbox One users had played an Xbox 360 game on the hardware—that's a staggering rate. With the introduction of original Xbox games that same year, the Xbox One's library has become bloated with options. And now, Capcom's third-person shooters of yester-generation are among them. Whether you own the Lost Planet series or Resident Evil Code: Veronica X physically or digitally on Xbox 360, you can play it starting today on Xbox One.
