Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episodes 1 and 2 are among them


[UPDATE] Microsoft has now confirmed the rumors, announcing that Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episodes 1 and 2, Fret Nice, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, Crystal Defenders, Neogeo Battle Coliseum, Capcom Arcade Cabinet, and Pac-Man Museum have all joined the Xbox One's backwards compatibility program.

Check out this post to see all of the 200-plus games in the Xbox One backwards compatibility program.

The original story is below.

It appears that Microsoft is going to add a number of Xbox 360 games to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility catalog today. Xbox insider @ekim_gaf, who has a track record of accuracy, wrote on Twitter that eight games are coming to the lineup today, July 21.

These include: Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episodes 1 and 2, Fret Nice, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, Crystal Defenders, Neogeo Battle Coliseum, Capcom Arcade Cabinet, and Pac-Man Museum.

While unconfirmed, ekim recently revealed the Gears of War 4 Xbox One S system before Microsoft announced it officially. Before that, the tipster accurately revealed July 2016's Games With Gold lineup before its official announcement

This doesn't guarantee that the backwards compatibility titles are accurate, however. We'll update this post later today if indeed these games are confirmed.

If true, it would be the second time this week that Microsoft added new games to the Xbox One backwards compatibility program. On Tuesday, Microsoft launched Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax, Flock, and Tour de France 2009 into the catalog.
