https://www.vg247.com/2019/02/22/xbox-game-pass-coming-to-switch-ori-luckys-tale-reports/

So as part of the recent talks between Microsoft and Nintendo, apparently several XBox One games that can run on the Switch will be directly ported to the system, while more intensive games will be streamable on the system via GamePass.

Of particular mention are the games Ori and the Blind Forest, and Super Lucky's Tale. Also mentioned by a French news source is Cuphead. These games would likely be released as Switch ports.

If GamePass comes to Switch, that potentially means The Master Chief Collection is coming to Switch - it would be interesting to see if Nintendo just makes the Switch compatible with the XBox One controller, or if they make these games playable on the Pro or Gamecube controllers.

Having played Ori and Cuphead a bit before, I can say these would be some great additions to the Switch library. It might also suggest that the sequel to Ori is coming our way.

There have also been rumors circling that PlatinumGames' Scalebound, cancelled a few years back, may be resurfacing as a Switch and XBox One title.

If it turns out to be true, this is pretty amazing news for Nintendo and Microsoft. What do you all think about it?

These are crazy days we're living, did not see this alliance coming.

If this is true then good for both of them, and us of course! I would be most hyped for Ori and the Blind Forest/Will of the Wisps and Cuphead.

Wow, I really wasn't expecting this. Hope they port Rare Replay. Grabbed by the Ghoulies on the Switch would be a nice addition. Highly unlikely but Halo Master Chief Collection would be fun to play portable.

If we have heard of this announcement a decade ago, no one will believe it.

Strange times indeed!

It is actually kind of interesting to wonder if this means XBox will get some Nintendo games as a result.

It's really hard to tell what either company's plans for the future are now.

Out of all those games I always thought cuphead would be well suited to the switch.

Makes sense. A big roadblock for Microsoft in some regions is the unpopularity of the Xbox hardware. With that barrier lifted, software - which actually makes more money than hardware, will have an easier entry for consumers.

Nintendo gets a portion of the sales/licensing, Microsoft expands its audience, and gamers get more gaming options. Seems like everyone wins. Well, except salty fanboys - but who really cares about them?

I'm sure the teams behind Cuphead and Ori are like excited kids if this turns out to be true.

Oh man, that hurts even thinking about, it would be too good.

I always wondered how something like Mario Kart or Smash would fare if they unleashed that on Playstation or Xbox.

Sony has many reasons to be scared if Microsoft and Nintendo make an alliance. Great for gamers though!

I'll really be impressed if they port Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey.

I only want Rare Replay the most, but replace most of the XBOX content with Nintendo content, like...

DKC Trilogy

Donkey Kong 64

Diddy Kong Racing

Star Fox Adventures

Master Chief Collection?! That could possibly bring many more people to the Switch. And I'd lose a lot of sleep playing that. Partner up Nintendo and Microsoft!!
