A new Ninja Gaiden II Xbox marketplace listing indicates an Xbox One backward compatibility debut is near.
Ninja Gaiden II may be on its way to Xbox One, given a newly-published store listing for the Xbox 360 classic. A fresh Xbox Marketplace store page has surfaced for the 2008 hack and slash action-adventure, serving up the full digital game, tagged with an April 16, 2019 release date. While published under now-defunct publisher Tecmo, its addition to the digital catalog indicates news lies ahead for the title.
With Microsoft winding investments in the Xbox 360, few games are added to the platform’s severed digital store today. Debuting full digital downloads for previous titles in 2019 often hints at a backward compatibility arrival, making Ninja Gaiden II a likely candidate for the Xbox One’s next titles. While the game is yet to surface on the Xbox One’s integrated storefront, keep an eye out in the hours ahead.
