Is Hell feeling a bit chilly? Are pigs taking to the skies? It might be prudent to check, because Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has voiced the opinion that he would love to see Nintendo games on the Xbox One.

Nintendo games on a rival console might not be likely, but then again, we said that about Nintendo games on smartphones...
