The avid fans of "Street Fighter IV" were delighted as their favorite video game was included in the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program for March. Nevertheless, Microsoft added the Vanilla version of the video game instead of newer forms of the game.

According to SegmentNext, the "Street Fighter IV" which has been addressed as one of the best chapters in the franchise is now formally available on Xbox One Backward Compatibility. Nevertheless there is a small catch and that is Microsoft has added the Vanilla version of "Street Fighter IV" to its backwards compatible library of games. With this the Xbox One owners will be able to download the video game but not the latest version which includes Super and Ultra Arcade editions.

Furthermore, the users of Xbox One should keep in mind that unless they carry over their saved files from Xbox 360, they have to beat the arcade mode for them to be able to crack the complete list of characters. Also, any add-on content that they already own like the substitute costumes, can be downloaded with comfort.

For reference, Stars Post has noted that "Street Fighter IV" was initially launched for Japanese arcades in 2008. The video game had made its way to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Feb. 2009 together with the North American and European versions. Meanwhile, a Windows version was also unveiled five months later. In addition, "Street Fighter IV" was also made accessible on iOS and LG-exclusive Android version in Mar. 2010.  

Aside from "Street Fighter IV," Microsoft also launched three arcade games from Microsoft Studios namely; "Luxor 2," "Madballs Babo: Invasion" and "Poker Smash." Additionally, the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility library also encompasses Disney Interactive Studios games namely; "Meet The Robinsons" and "Cars 2: The Video Game." The American tech giant also included the "Dead Rising 2" episodes," Dead Rising 2: Case Zero" and "Dead Rising 2: Case West" to the roster of games for Xbox One Backward Compatibility.

For the owners of Xbox One, this is their chance as the "Street Fighter 4" Vanilla is included to Xbox One Backward Compatibility program. Nevertheless, they could also take advantage of the other games that are included to the list.
