Today, Microsoft announced five new additions to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list. The new titles include 3D Ultra Minigolf, Contra, Gin Rummy, Golf: Tee It Up!, and RoboBlitz.
The games are the first ones to hit the list in nine days, since Call of Duty: Black Ops II was added last Tuesday. In fact, Microsoft seems to be slowing its pace for adding games, as before that, it had been a week since two new titles showed up.
