The Xbox team is calling this a "new journey for the backward compatibility program," explaining that making games from previous generations available on mobile devices has been a very highly requested feature.

"Being able to take a trip down memory lane either to relive past memories or make new ones with a classic is delightful and critical to preserving gaming’s history.

We’ve enabled this experience through our backward compatibility program, launched in 2015. Since then we’ve launched multiple consoles and are still committed to making games across generations available to you no matter the hardware."
