While Xbox One gamers have been able to check out many Xbox 360 games thanks to the continued backwards compatibility support, some games are more difficult to get backwards compatibility support for than others. One such game is Voodoo Vince, which the developers and Microsoft tried to get the backwards compatible support for but it ultimately wasn’t possible due to the game’s engine.
However, that isn’t stopping them from getting people to dive back into the game’s world, as today they have announced that the game will be getting remastered. The game’s developer Clayton Kauzlaric said the following about the news:
“I’m super excited to bring Voodoo Vince back. Backward compatibility was never possible due to the nature of our game engine, but the ID@Xbox program got me thinking about publishing an HD remastered version independently, with much of the game rewritten from the ground up to run on newer hardware. The folks at Microsoft have been amazingly supportive of the idea.”
Voodoo Vince originally launched for Xbox in 2003, though the remaster on Xbox One and PC is currently targeting a 2017 release window. The game will run at 1080p and 60fps, and will also include achievements. You can check out a teaser for the remaster below.
