Ninja Gaiden Black and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic are 2 of my favourite games of the 21st century. I can't wait to play them again on my Xbox One S.

Personally, I didn't like Ninja Gaiden 2. I never even played Ninja Gaiden 3.

So do you get the graphical update with just a downloaded copy from the Xbox store or with the disc version as well? I assume the former.

That was not what I asked. I know you can use the disc copy, but do you still get the graphical update - as that won't be on the disc.
