Remember the Nintendo Switch that showed up on Phil Spencer’s shelf a while ago? Well, the Head of Xbox has now revealed it was actually present from Nintendo of America’s president, Doug Bowser, and the rest of the team.
Phil revealed this information during a recent appearance on the Kinda Funny Gamescast. As we all know, Microsoft and Nintendo live down the road from each other in the US and maintain friendly relations. Here’s exactly what he had to say courtesy of Pure Xbox:
“The Switch was a gift from Nintendo. Doug Bowser and the team, they’re obviously right up the hill from us – we’re both in Redmond, Washington – and it was a gift from them. I have another one that I use to play at home, but that was one that they gave me early on when it launched. So, that’s what that’s from.”
While there’s no saying it’s some sort of teaser, past comments have suggested that “pretty much everything” on Phil’s shelf is a hint of some kind.
Although there seems to be nothing in the works, the most recent collab between the two companies would be Bethesda’s Skyrim character Dragonborn (now owned by Xbox) appearing in Smash Ultimate at the end of last month as a Mii Fighter costume.
