Yet more of SEGA’s amazing Xbox 360 library is available on Xbox One now, with Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown added just about a week after Bayonetta! This is definitely worth getting if you don’t already have it, it’s one of the deepest, technical, yet also fairly accessible fighting games there is!
After our previous post and video about Bayonetta on Xbox One, friend of the site TheGagaman pointed me to the above video. It turns out that if you are in the preview program, Bayonetta actually runs really well, and in some cases even better than the Wii U version. I have now tried this on my second console (which is on the preview) and can confirm it runs perfectly. Awesome!
After playing around 30 minutes of Bayonetta via backwards compatibility, I’m afraid to say it’s definitely not a good experience. The game frequently dropped to around 15fps, sometimes lower. The game remains playable (sort of) as the in-game action actually slows down when the frame rate drops too low rather than skipping loads of frames, but it is absolutely awful to play.
If you need your Bayonetta fix, stick to the Xbox 360 and Wii U versions of this classic.
The original Bayonetta is reportedly now available on Xbox One via backwards compatibility, according to Destructoid.
I’ll be checking this out later today!
For those of you in the Xbox One preview program, clubs are now available. Clubs are social gathering areas where you can meet new friends and plan gaming sessions.
I have just created the official Segashiro club, so feel free to search for us and join up!
I know you don’t hear from us much now, but have an update! Joining other SEGA gems from the Xbox 360 available to play on the Xbox One such as Jet Set Radio, most of the Sonic Mega Drive-era games and the Sega Vintage series, we now have Phantasy Star II and Sonic & Knuckles (finishing out that list of Mega Drive-era Sonic games available on 360).
The tweet by Major Nelson announcing this is here. I happened to stumble across them in my installable games section and thought it was Christmas.
