Here's an easy holiday gift for all the Xbox One owners itching to relive the nostalgic days of classic Xbox 360 titles: From now until December 31st, digital copies of Hironobu Sakaguchi and Mistwalker Studios' legendary Japanese RPG Lost Odyssey are free for download on Xbox One's backward compatibility.

If you missed it the first go-round, Lost Odyssey follows the journey of Kaim "a mysterious immortal warrior" on a mission of self-discovery. The freebie is "our small way of saying thank you for being a fan of Xbox" Mike Nelson wrote on the Xbox Wire today, but it's also a celebration of Xbox hitting a 300-title milestone on Backwards Compatibility. While you'll still have to pony up $19.99 to bring back other classics like Bioshock or Call of Duty: World at War, Lost Odyssey originally spanned four dual-layer DVDs when it was released in 2008, so players will definitely have enough free content to get through a long holiday season and well into 2017.
