Nintendo 64 classic “GoldenEye 007” will be available for Switch and Xbox

James Bond fans may have been waiting for the announcement of the next actor to play the British spy on the big screen, but a beloved Bond adventure of yesteryear is making a comeback.

“GoldenEye 007,” a classic first-person shooter made for the Nintendo 64 in 1997, is being remade for the Nintendo Switch and Xbox more than 25 years later. For fans who subscribe to additional content on both game systems, the game will be available next Friday (3).

Based on the 1995 film “GoldenEye”, the game follows a block version of Pierce Brosnan’s 007 as he makes his way through various locations, while a synthesized version of Bond’s signature theme plays. The Xbox version has been “faithfully recreated and improved,” an announcement for the re-release said, while the Switch game features a multiplayer mode.

“GoldenEye 007” was a success upon release: IGN gave it a 9.7/10 in 1997, praising its graphics as “excellent”.

Contemporary gamers, accustomed to the realistic visuals of popular games like “The Last of Us” and “Red Dead Redemption” might disagree, but the game still retains a nostalgic appeal for fans who spent their youth blasting their way across surfaces using the clock. James Bond. The soundtrack also remains iconic.

To access the game, Switch users will have to create an online subscription, in addition to the expansion pack, which includes some Nintendo 64 games and downloadable content for popular games like “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” and “Animal Crossing: New Horizons ”.

Xbox gamers must subscribe to Xbox Game Pass, a service that allows players to access hundreds of games from its server.

The return of “GoldenEye 007”, often referred to as one of the greatest video games of all time, took years to make.

News outlet The Verge reported last year that rights issues have prevented developers from releasing it on newer consoles, including Xbox, since 2008.

Nintendo 64 fans even tried to remake the game on several occasions, although the original rights holders would not allow it. Now Rare, the game’s original developer, has recreated it for Xbox with “a few modern touches”, while Nintendo is re-releasing the original on its Switch console.
