The 21st century revival literally everyone has been waiting for is finally upon us.

Months after receiving hard confirmation that a remastered edition of GoldenEye 007 was coming to both Nintendo Switch Online and Xbox Game Pass, we can enjoy the same glorious split screen gameplay that won millions of hearts in the late 90s/early 00s, along with an exclusive multiplayer for those who have declared for Team Nintendo (tough luck, Xbox fanboys).

A some of you may recall, the greatest news of 2022 by a considerable margin was first announced during a Nintendo Direct presentation, which revealed several more beloved N64 games will soon be arriving to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack in addition to the iconic James Bond-themed first-person shooter, including…

  • Pilotwings 64
  • 1080° Snowboarding
  • Pokémon Stadium

“The original experience has been updated with improved control options – including dual analogue stick support,” teased developer Rare.

“Native 16:9 resolution up to 4K Ultra HD (where supported), a consistent refresh rate, and a full complement of achievements to unlock.”

The Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, of course, is only available through a $60 subscription fee here in Australia. A pretty reasonable price for elite-level nostalgia gaming, if you ask me.

To make up for the heartbreaking lack of multiplayer action, however, Rare noted players who own Rare Replay on Xbox Game Pass – the 30-game compilation of classics from the award-winning studio behind the original GoldenEye 007 – will also be able to cop the forthcoming remaster free of charge. So there’s a trade off.

Preview the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One & Series X | S remaster of GoldenEye 007 above, and remember: picking Oddjob is still considered a dog move.

GoldenEye 007 Nintendo Switch Edition Description:

Enter a world of espionage as Bond in GoldenEye 007. Your covert operation to stop the GoldenEye weapon satellite spans the globe – you’ll infiltrate underground bases, charge through a military train and slink around the depths of a jungle. Along the way M will brief you on your objectives and Q Branch will support your efforts with an array of gadgets, but the ultimate success of this mission is yours alone. Save the day, then go for the gold in spy-vs-spy action locally or online in the four-player multiplayer mode and enjoy round-after-round of first-person competitive action.
