Prince of Persia and EDF 2025 are now playable on Xbox One


I’m long overdue a replay

I’m happy to see 2008’s Prince of Persia make it to Xbox One via backward compatibility.

At the time, it was a departure for the series and that understandably led to divisiveness among Prince of Persia fans, but gosh dang if it isn’t a pleasant sight even a decade later. My memory of the game is generally positive but mostly fuzzy, so having it accessible on Xbox One will be lovely.

Prince of Persia, Earth Defense Force 2025 and SINE MORA are coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today

Microsoft also added the surprisingly dark side-scrolling shoot-’em-up Sine Mora (which has since been re-released) and Earth Defense Force 2025, a game you’re either Very Into or will straight up ignore.
