Zone of the Enders HD Collection joins Xbox One’s backwards compatibility lineup

Konami's Zone of the Enders HD Collection has been added to Xbox One's ever-expanding backwards compatibility lineup, Microsoft announced overnight.

The brainchild of Hideo Kojima, Zone of the Enders was released for PlayStation 2 back in 2001, and included a playable demo of the then-upcoming Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. A sequel followed in 2003, and Konami later remastered it for PlayStation 4 with VR support.

Sadly, while both Zone of the Enders games are undeniable classics, the HD Collection didn't exactly receive the best treatment for Xbox 360 back in 2012. Unlike the PS3 version, it wasn't patched, and contains a number of troublesome issues such as a rather horrendous frame rate.

This was also the case with the Silent Hill HD Collection, another series that should have received far better attention than it got back in the day.

Also joining Zone of the Enders HD Collection is Rumble Roses XX, which was originally released on Microsoft's last-gen machine in 2006. It's also available on the Xbox Store now for £11.99.

If you own a physical copy of either game you can, as always, simply pop them into your Xbox One disc drive and start playing. For some reason, Zone of the Enders HD Collection isn't available to buy digitally on the Xbox Store at the moment.
