The relationship between Nintendo Y Microsoft made it possible for players of the hybrid console to enjoy titles like Cuphead, Ori and the Blind Forest or New Super Lucky’s Tale where they wanted, when they wanted and how they wanted, titles that were previously exclusive to the platforms of the parents of Windows. So, Phil Spencer, one of the top managers of Xbox, has spoken in the last IGN podcast about the relationship with the Big N and what is your vision of the whole situation.

Phil Spencer comments on the relationship between Microsoft and Nintendo
In the latest IGN Podcast Phil Spencer has talked about how he has a good relationship with Doug Bowser, president of Nintendo America, and that he usually talks to Shuntaro Furukawa, Nintendo CEO.
