It's great to see Microsoft and Nintendo working with each other on this level. Hopefully we'll see even greater collaboration in the future.
pretty cool 2ds. A real love affair going on right now with nintendo and MS. I wonder if they’ll keep making collaborations
Honestly I'd love if Wii exclusives were ported to Xbox One, not even Wii U, Wii.
There's realistic expectations, and then there's this comment. Just because two companies start to work together, does not mean one will start to port their first-party games onto it. Minecraft was already on Nintendo platforms when Microsoft bought it so that's an exception, and older games Rare has a say in the licensing.
@Sgt_Slaughter: No it was not. Minecraft got released for its first Nintendo platform, the Wii U, December 17th, 2015. The Switch version followed in May of 2017 followed by the 3DS version which launched September 17th, 2017. Microsoft completed the deal to buy the Minecraft IP November 6th, 2014.
And what about Viva Piñata on the DS?
Okay, I was a bit off yes, but it appeared on many other systems before the buyout so everyone expected it to continue releasing on non-Microsoft platforms afterward.
@Sgt There's also Minecraft Story Mode which came out well after Microsoft acquired the IP, Microsoft spent 2.5 billion on the IP, it would be stupid of them not to try and recoup some of that money by putting Minecraft on other platforms.
It would be cool if this led to some of Microsoft's characters ending up in Smash, like Banjo.
Really hope this leads to Banjo-Kazooie, Master Chief, or Joanna Dark ending up in Smash Bros. Ultimate.
I think Microsoft should just buy Nintendo. 😂
Nintendo buying Xbox once Microsoft is done with it is a more likely thing to happen. Nintendo is only going up, Xbox stalled out.
Someone REALLY wants kinect 2
