Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Confirms Blue Dragon Will Join Xbox One Backwards Compatibility
The RPG Blue Dragon will be making its way to Xbox One through backwards compatibility, according to head of Xbox Phil Spencer. The news surfaced on Twitter, when a fan asked whether the RPG would ever be playable on the console.
Phil Spencer responded and confirmed that it would, in a comical manner:

What remains a mystery is when exactly the title will make its way to Xbox One, but it's clear that there are plans to make it happen. Blue Dragon released on three disks on the Xbox 360 in 2007 for North America. For more on backwards compatible games, read about how the fan-favorite Red Dead Redemption is now playable on Xbox One. Check out the full list on Major Nelson's blog.
Multi-disk support for backwards compatibility was introduced back in May with Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut. This gives me hope that we'll eventually see Lost Odyssey and more multi-disk games, such as Mass Effect 2 and 3, join the list of backwards compatible titles.
