Microsoft and Studio MDHR have only just announced that the extremely difficult Cuphead is joining the Switch, and already there’s talk of more Xbox One games coming to Nintendo’s console. While the retro cartoon everyone sarcastically compares to Dark Souls will launch April 18 for the Nintendo Switch, individuals who were present at the non-recorded Xbox Live on Android/iOS panel have teased on Twitter that there is more to come from the partnership.
Per ResetERA, Scottish games journalist Chris Scullion said that Microsoft is working with Nintendo to bring achievements to specific titles. In addition, Russell Holly has said that there are currently no plans for “an Xbox Live SDK for Switch right now”, but more games like Cuphead will be added to the Switch with Live enabled over the next year.
Microsoft is currently giving its GDC speech on Xbox Live support being added to mobile games. I'm being told they've also just said that they're working with Nintendo to bring achievements to select titles. They're already in Minecraft Switch so there's precedent.— Chris Scullion (@scully1888) March 20, 2019
