The games are from Rare, who originally published them on Nintendo consoles. Rare was responsible for a lot of incredible Nintendo titles, from R.C. Pro-Am to Donkey Kong Country and Killer Instinct. Microsoft bought the company outright and brought them in-house fifteen years ago, but their legacy remains synonymous with Nintendo. The games that were shown this year at E3 had zero Nintendo IP in them, so Rare & Microsoft were able to get away with it.

 

Nintendolife has the story here: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2015/06/rare_replay_on_xbox_one_will_include_30_games_including_classics_from_nintendo_systems

 

Doctor Octagon had started a thread on this topic in January, with respect to Microsoft appropriation of Nintendo's legacy, which you can read here: http://forums.atari.io/index.php/topic/225-this-seems-a-lot-like-microsoft-stealing-from-nintendos-legacy/

I had to pull out my copy of RC Pro-AM to see.....I never knew that it was made by Rare! Of course, it was well before they came up with the gold R logo for Rare, that's why I didn't realize it was one of their titles.
