A Microsoft executive has declined to comment on the status of the Nintendo Switch Game Pass negotiations

Xbox also collaborated with Nintendo to bring Banjo-Kazooie and Minecraft characters to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Xbox has dabbled in collaborating with Nintendo over the past few years. It published the first Ori game for Nintendo’s platform in September 2019, followed by its sequel last year, as well as another former Xbox One exclusive, Cuphead.

However, in an interview with Kotaku published last November, head of Xbox Phil Spencer claimed that the prospect of bringing more Xbox games to Switch “doesn’t feel sustainable” unless it was able to bring the full Xbox ecosystem, including Game Pass, to the platform.

The exec claimed that he had “a very good relationship with Nintendo” and cited regular conversations with Nintendo CEO Shuntaro Furukawa and Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser.

Asked this week for an update on the status of talks with Nintendo to get Game Pass on the Switch, Xbox’s VP of creator experiences Sarah Bond told the Axios Gaming newsletter: “I can’t comment on any specifics around that relationship as it relates to Game Pass.”

Ahead of E3 2021, Microsoft held a private briefing for media and analysts this week in which it emphasised its strategy of bringing Xbox to as many devices as possible.

The corporation even confirmed plans to bring Xbox cloud gaming to internet-connected TVs in a move that will let players access services like Game Pass with no extra hardware required, except a controller.

Microsoft is currently working with global TV manufacturers to embed the Xbox experience directly into internet-connected TVs, it said, in addition to building its own streaming devices to bring cloud gaming to any TV or monitor without the need for a console.
