Nearly each week, the Xbox One library of Xbox 360 (and beyond) classics available to play has been expanding through backwards compatibility, with five more titles having been added to the console’s stable of classics today.

Xbox’s Larry Hryb (aka “Major Nelson”) has announced five more titles that are now available to play through Xbox One’s backwards compatibility, with (nearly) all of the titles bearing a vintage spin with the addition of Dig DugPhantasy Star IIRunner 2Samurai Showdown II, and Sonic & Knuckles now available.
