Gunstar Heroes now available on Xbox One through backward compatibility

As you all most likely know,  the Xbox One has started to go the backwards compatibility route with Xbox 360 games.  It’s reception has been good so far (minus actually finding the titles on the Xbox store) with some fan favorites now playable on the One.  SEGA,  never to be left out of a good thing,  has had some of it’s titles ported over as well.  Titles such as Crazy Taxi,  Condemned,  and the SEGA Vintage Collection volumes of Golden Axe/Streets of Rage have since been added to the compatibility program.  As of today,  it looks like Treasure classic Gunstar Heroes has been added to that list.  A digital only port of the original Genesis version with online multiplayer released in 2009,  this is definitely a version of the game worth downloading.  Backbone Entertainment really knocked it out of the park with this port.


It seems like there aren’t really any new things added to this version,  but it’s good enough to earn it’s place on the Xbox One for a new generation to play.  Right now, Gunstar Heroes is available for purchase through the Xbox Store or Xbox website for the small price of $4.99 US.  I’d say if you never experienced it before,  give it a shot.  It is a high quality run-n’-gun that any fan of the genre shouldn’t be without.
