Three Steins;Gate Games Join Xbox One Backward Compatibility Program


Xbox One owners who pick up Japanese Xbox 360 games will find some familiar titles have been added to Microsoft’s backwards compatibility program. Major Nelson has confirmed that three Steins;Gate games are now part of the program.


The three games are the original Steins;Gate and the Steins;Gate: Linear Bounded Phenogram and Steins;Gate: Darling of Loving Vows spin-offs. Linear Bounded Phenogram is essentially a fandisc compilation of stories from different world lines, while Darling of Loving Vows is a romantic comedy set in a Delta world line. Microsoft’s backwards compatibility website notes that Linear Bounded Phenogram is a disc only option.


Steins; Gate, Steins;Gate: Linear Bounded Phenogram, and Steins;Gate: Darling of Loving Vows are available on the Xbox 360 in Japan.
