Microsoft and Nintendo are teaming up to publish more Xbox games on the Switch, involving both direct ports and a Switch app to allow for Game Pass, the Netflix-like subscription service for video games. To be more specific, Microsoft is looking to publish Ori and the Blind Forest, which is currently an exclusive for Windows 10 and Xbox platforms, on Switch. That’s not all, project xCloud, the cloud-based game streaming service Microsoft showcased at E3 2018, could be coming to Nintendo’s console, too, enabling you to play games on the Switch that its limited hardware otherwise wouldn’t be able to handle – like Halo – provided you have a reliable and high-speed internet connection.

“Microsoft has been expanding Project xCloud to a number of other devices including smartphones and it would be good for the company to expand its reach, especially with strong competition from Google’s Project Stream, which will let you play PC games through the Chrome browser. This would not be the first time that Nintendo has experimented with streaming games in this way. In Japan, Capcom’s Resident Evil 7 is playable on the Switch through the cloud,” reports Fox News.
