Microsoft will also include FPS Boost on eleven of the new games. Among these titles will be NieR and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.

As mentioned earlier, this is the last bunch of backward compatible games that will appear for Xbox consoles. According to Peggy Lo, who is the compatibility program lead at Xbox, Microsoft is no longer able to bring in any more old games due to licensing, legal, or technical issues. However, in 2019, Xbox announced that it would not add any more Xbox or Xbox 360 games to the compatibility library. Yet NieR originally came out on the Xbox 360 in 2010. While there are no current plans to add any more games to the library, this may change in the future.

All 76 Xbox backward compatible games, including NieR, are now available to play. In other NieR news, Square Enix is selling a NieR Replicant Emil head plush in its Japanese online store.
