Nintendo Switch with Red and Blue JoyCons

Rumors have surfaced to suggest that Microsoft is readying a partnership with Nintendo to bring Game Pass and first-party Xbox titles to the Nintendo Switch.

According to several reports, each has heard from credible sources, Microsoft is set to bring titles such as Ori and the Blind Forest and Super Lucky’s Tale to Nintendo Switch. Not only that, the company’s much bigger first-party titles could also come to the platform too, streaming through Game Pass.

Now, this rumor comes hot on the heels of the news that Microsoft is set to bring Xbox Live to new platforms, including Nintendo Switch – though the company is yet to actually confirm any of these rumors.

To go into a bit more detail, it seems Microsoft’s Project xCloud will be how the company could potentially bring titles such as Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, and Crackdown 3 to the handheld.

As for titles like Ori and the Blind Forest and Super Lucky’s Tale, these will come to the platform natively. It’s currently unknown whether these titles will work with Game Pass on Switch, or if they’ll behave like other titles on the platform.

Currently, Nintendo in Japan has seen titles stream on the switch such as Resident Evil 7 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, so streaming larger, third-party titles on the Switch isn’t out of the question, however, it seems a wider adoption of game streaming on Switch is yet to happen.

What are your thoughts on this, would you subscribe to Game Pass on Switch? Or if you’re already a Game Pass subscriber, would you play Xbox titles on Switch? Sound off in the comments below.
