microsoft inks deal with nintendo call of duty coming to the switch

Microsoft has inked a deal with Nintendo to have its games be available on the Nintendo platform. That means Call of Duty is coming to the Switch.

Let's cover the games, besides Call of Duty, which is a given, that will make the best Nintendo Switch ports:

"Halo: The Master Chief Collection"

"Halo: The Master Chief Collection" is one of Microsoft's most popular game franchises, and it would be a great addition to the Nintendo Switch's library. This collection includes six classic "Halo" games, including the critically acclaimed "Halo 2." The Switch has already proven that it can handle first-person shooters with games like "DOOM" and "Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus," so "Halo" should be no problem.

"Forza Horizon 4"

The "Forza" franchise has been a staple for Xbox gamers for years, and "Forza Horizon 4" is one of the best racing games of the past few years. It features a huge open world and a variety of cars, both realistic and fantastic. The Switch doesn't have many racing games, so "Forza Horizon 4" would be a great addition.

"Sea of Thieves"

"Sea of Thieves" is an online multiplayer pirate adventure game that has become very popular since its release. Players can explore the seas, find treasure, and engage in ship-to-ship combat. The game's cartoonish visuals would look great on the Switch, and the game's focus on exploration and adventure would be a great fit for Nintendo fans.


"Minecraft" is one of the most popular games of all time, and it has been released on almost every platform imaginable. However, it has yet to make its way to the Nintendo Switch. This game's open-world sandbox style and creative mode would be perfect for the Switch, and it would be a great way for Nintendo fans to get in on the "Minecraft" craze.

"Gears of War 4"

"Gears of War 4" is a third-person shooter that is known for its intense action and memorable characters. The game's campaign mode is great, but it's the multiplayer that really shines. The Switch doesn't have many third-person shooters, so "Gears of War 4" would be a great way to introduce Nintendo fans to the genre.

"Ori and the Blind Forest"

"Ori and the Blind Forest" is a beautiful 2D platformer that is known for its stunning visuals and emotional story. The game's gameplay is challenging but fair, and it has been praised for its Metroidvania-style design. The Switch has proven to be a great platform for platformers, so "Ori and the Blind Forest" would be a great addition to the Switch's library.


"Cuphead" is a 2D run-and-gun game that is known for its stunning visuals, challenging gameplay, and jazzy soundtrack. The game's difficulty is often compared to classic games like "Contra" and "Mega Man," and it has become a cult classic since its release. The Switch is no stranger to difficult games, so "Cuphead" would be a great fit.

"Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition"

"Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition" is a classic real-time strategy game that has been updated with modern graphics and gameplay tweaks. The game is known for its deep gameplay, historical accuracy, and memorable campaigns. The Switch doesn't have many real time strategy games, and this one would be nice to have.
