Today, Microsoft confirmed that Lightning will join the Xbox One backward compatible list and take advantage of the Xbox One X’s power.

Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will all be backward compatible for Xbox One on November 12. The original game launched on Xbox 360, making it the first game in the franchise to come to a Microsoft console.

The games themselves were a result of polarizing reception. Many praised the graphics and paradigm fighting system but criticized the first game’s linear system and the final game’s cryptic story. Lightning did amass popularity along with antagonist Caius was is frequently voted as one of the best villains in the franchise.

Personally, I loved Final Fantasy XIII-2 and felt it improved on the original game’s faults but argue that Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII was a poor game due to the game’s uneventful and often confusing story.
