James Bond Will Return In GoldenEye 007
January 25, 2023
After teasing the release late last year, Nintendo is ready to put the classic shooter GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64 on its Switch Online service. Releasing Friday, January 27, 2023 the famous game will return for old fans to enjoy and new audiences to discover. As a new trailer from Nintendo points out (and someone had a lot of fun making that trailer, I bet), widescreen mode is enabled on this release and you'll be able to enjoy online multiplayer through the NSO N64 app. Remember that if you're new to GoldenEye or just can't get your old muscle memory moving again, dip into the game's options to test out the multiple control options. There's a control scheme for everyone including some that require two controllers with one in each hand. I rented GoldenEye many times in the late 1990s and it was a favorite when friends came over, but I never owned a copy of my own. I look forward to finally having all the time in the world to fully explore the single player missions and take on friends online in multiplayer. No items, Fox only, Final Destination! No, wait, that's not right...
Meanwhile, the game is also coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series S / X consoles the same day with local multiplayer, achievements, additional control options, and widescreen 4K resolution. It's available free to anyone who owns Rare Replay and will also be featured on Xbox Game Pass. Enjoy this one, gang. Heaven and Earth had to move to get it back out there.
