Aliens and supersonic hedgehogs, oh my! Earth Defense Force 2017 and Sonic Adventures 2 are coming to Xbox One backward compatibility today, according to a tweet from Major Nelson.

Earth Defense Force 2017, which came out on the Xbox 360 in 2007, pits players against a hostile army of alien invaders in a version of 2017 that is almost as bad our own. Our own Joe Juba called named it as one of his favorite cult classics. Sonic Adventure 2, originally released on the Dreamcast in 2001 but later ported to Gamecube, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, is a classic entry in the Sonic franchise. If you haven't had enough Sonic this year, this is the perfect chance to enjoy one of Sonic's best adventures.
