Xbox’s Larry Hryb, better known as Major Nelson, has just posted up on his blog that new backwards compatible games will be arriving on the Xbox Store. This time around we will see games such as Bayonetta, de Blob 2, and Arakanoid.

Bayonetta is a welcomed surprise considering that both Bayonetta 1 and 2 were packaged together for the WiiU. Finally the highly praised action game is coming to the Xbox One. For those who have no idea what Bayonetta is, it’s a game created by Platnium Games. More specifically, from the man who created the Devil May Cry franchise. The influence is clearly seen in Bayonetta as it quickly became regarded as one of the best action games of all time.

Bayonetta is currently up for $19.99. Below is the description from its respective page on the Xbox Store.

From the creative geniuses behind Devil May Cry and Resident Evil comes Bayonetta™, a game of 100% pure, unadulterated, climatic action. With powers far beyond the comprehension of mere mortals, our heroine Bayonetta fights countless enemies, evil forces and giant foes in brutal yet graceful ways.

de Blob 2 is currently up for $19.99. Below is the description from its respective page on the Xbox Store.

Blob’s origins are mysterious, but he rolled up at the right place and the right time to be the hero that the Color Underground was looking for. Music surrounds him and color energy flows through him; with his touch Blob can literally make the world a better place. Blob represents individuality and determination. Blob is good hearted but lazy. He is often late, but he always comes through.

Araknoid Live is currently up for $9.99. Below is the description from its respective page on the Xbox Store.

I am a business major, photographer and I occasionally write something that is somewhat legible. I also happen to be a long time gamer rocking my older brother's Atari 2600 and ColecoVision until that magical day I got the NES Deluxe set. These days I bounce mostly between PC games, home consoles and handhelds.
