GoldenEye 007 is getting a re-release on the Nintendo Switch Online and Xbox Game Pass, with its release date just right around the corner.

GoldenEye 007 Release Date: January 27, 2023

GoldenEye 007 will be coming out to the Nintendo Switch Online and Xbox Game Pass subscription services on January 27, 2023.

Rare is re-releasing the classic Nintendo 64 game to modern consoles through the Nintendo Switch Online and Xbox Game Pass subscription services. Finally, Xbox players will be getting their hands on GoldenEye 007. We still remember the time when the game was meant to come out on the Xbox Live Arcade back in 2008, only for the project to be canceled when Microsoft and Nintendo can’t agree on a licensing model. But since January last year, news of a GoldenEye re-release and even an Xbox One version surfaced, and now we’re at the cusp of it finally happening: the original Nintendo 64 version of GoldenEye 007 is coming back when its release date passes on January 27, 2023.

GoldenEye 007 Xbox vs. Nintendo Switch versions

The Xbox One version will support a 16:9 aspect ratio and 4K resolution displays, while the Nintendo Switch Online version can be played in both the original 4:3 aspect ratio as well as widescreen. Between the two versions, only the Nintendo Switch Online version can be played online, as it uses the Nintendo Switch Online emulator’s built-in online multiplayer functionality. The Xbox One version will only have local split-screen multiplayer. The Xbox One version will also have new control options, achievements, and updated graphics.

Players who previously bought Rare Replay‘s Xbox One Compilation back in 2015 will be receiving GoldenEye 007 on the Xbox One for free.

GoldenEye 007 is considered to be one of the greatest games ever made and is a staple in the speedrunning community. It’s still widely played today with speedrunning records still being made. However, we’re concerned that since the Xbox One version is a remastered game, the bugs and exploits that speedrunners could have been using to finish the game quickly could have been removed. It’s only going to be a matter of time before we find out, but if you’re a purist, you might want to pick up the Nintendo Switch Online version instead and pick up your speedrunning efforts there where you left off back in the N64.

GoldenEye 007 Remastered release date as Switch Xbox confirmed

The classic N64 first-person shooter is back at last as GoldenEye 007 is being re-released on modern platforms. Splitscreen multiplayer is back.

Better yet, the game is a remaster and will feature online multiplayer for the first time. On Nintendo Switch, anyway. This major addition should help ensure this is the GoldenEye comeback fans have been longing for.

What’s more, GoldenEye 007 Remastered is on the way to Xbox consoles via Xbox Game Pass and as part of Rare Replay. In a shaking, not stirring twist, both versions of the game look to feature different additions and changes based on the original.

Read on to discover everything there is to know about the GoldenEye 007 port to modern platforms including its release date, gameplay changes, and more.

When is the GoldenEye 007 Remastered release date?

GoldenEye 007 is releasing on Nintendo Switch on Friday, 27th January 2023, it has been confirmed by Nintendo.

This is the version of the game that features online multiplayer. It’s worth noting that it is launching as part of the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack subscription and features online multiplayer in the same way other N64 games on the service do.

The GoldenEye 007 Remastered release date on Xbox is also Friday, 27th January 2023, it has been confirmed by the developer. This version includes upgraded visuals, framerate, and achievements but doesn’t seem to have online multiplayer.

Can I pre-order GoldenEye 007 Remastered?

There’s no need to pre-order GoldenEye 007 Remastered because this new version of GoldenEye will come included with two key subscription services.

On Xbox consoles, you’ll be able to access GoldenEye 007 Remastered with an Xbox Game Pass subscription. You can subscribe using the offers below. You can also play it as part of a free update to Rare Replay.

What’s new with GoldenEye 007 Remastered gameplay?

Way back in 1997, the game GoldenEye 007 was released on the Nintendo 64. It had been developed by Rare and published by Nintendo, and its multiplayer mode went on to achieve cult-classic status. The game is still widely adored by many.

Numerous attempts have been made over the years to recapture the magic of the original GoldenEye game, including the Activision-published version of GoldenEye 007 that launched on Wii, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2010. That particular game made the surprising choice of swapping Pierce Brosnan out for Daniel Craig, though, and did not receive quite as much love as the original.

For years now, rumours have suggested that the developers from Rare (now owned by Xbox) have recreated the game for modern systems, but it seemed to be taking a while for anything to be announced through official channels. But now it has been!

Interestingly, two different announcements have been made here, and they don’t match up: Nintendo has been touting the online play element, while all of the Xbox communications have been mentioning achievements, 4K resolution and a smoother frame rate (while not mentioning online play at all).

The Switch version of the game is a straight up port to the N64 games section of the Switch Online Expansion Pack service. As with most other multiplayer games in the subscription service, you will be able to play online splitscreen multiplayer with people on your friends’ list. Interestingly, widescreen support has been added to the game as well. You can see it in action in the release date trailer below:

The Xbox version is the remastered game. This features upgraded 4K visuals, a smoother framerate, and achievements. Time will tell if this version of the game features online multiplayer or not. We’ll be sure to update this page if/when clarity becomes available on that.

Which platforms can play GoldenEye 007 Remastered?

GoldenEye 007 Remastered will be available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Those are the platforms that have been confirmed thus far, so maybe you shouldn’t expect to see the game on PlayStation 4, PS5 or PC. We’ll let you know if we hear anything, though.

Opinion: GoldenEye’s 16:9 support doesn’t help other 4:3 games marred by borders.

reader Комментарии и мнения владельцев

Today marks the long-awaited rerelease of the Nintendo 64 classic GoldenEye 007 on the Nintendo Switch. As was announced before the launch, the game supports widescreen. When I learned that, my first thought wasn’t Oh, nice! Rather, it was OK, but what about the rest of the library?

Further Reading

To be clear, there’s no easy way to make old 4:3 games fill up a modern 16:9 aspect ratio, and that’s not something I would recommend in this case. But the solution used by the rest of the library of old games running within the Nintendo Switch Online service—enclosing every game in horribly distracting and potentially destructive gray borders—is, well, awful.

goldeneye, game, nintendo, switch, release

So as Nintendo finally adds one of the most beloved Nintendo 64 games to Switch Online, allow me a moment to vent some frustration on behalf of many players.

Give players the choice

Players have been complaining about the mandatory gray borders since the launch of the Switch’s subscription-based classic game library back in 2018, but Nintendo has never done anything to change it.

While I have trouble imagining actually wanting those borders, choice seems key here. Players who enjoy the same NES, SNES, Genesis, and Nintendo 64 games in emulators on Windows or Linux PCs, Macs, Android phones, and other devices can choose whether to include a border or to simply display black letterboxing on either side of the image. Even among retro collections released by most other publishers, players are usually given a choice. For example, Sega’s recent Sonic Origins collection infamously did a lot of things terribly wrong on the emulation and presentation front, but it at least got this part right.

Further Reading

I’m often the first to defend the notion of a developer or artist’s intent with a game, but since this feature is used across numerous games from several developers, that’s not a factor here.

Part of the frustration stems from the fact that it seems like such an easy change to make. Granted, players often believe that issues in games can be easily fixed, even when that’s not true. Some gamers who don’t understand what goes into making games have taken to Internet forums to insist that it would take just a day or two to add multiplayer to any given single-player game. (That is definitely not the case.) But speaking as a developer myself, in this case, the requested change really would be easy.

To my knowledge, Nintendo has never shared its justification for this choice, but it’s surely at least that: a deliberate choice.

goldeneye, game, nintendo, switch, release

The OLED problem

For many people, the border comes down to personal preference, but for others, it’s a more pressing concern. Folks using TVs that rely on technologies that carry burn-in risk find Nintendo’s approach particularly frustrating. On modern OLED or older plasma TVs, there’s always a risk that static elements on the screen could permanently scar the TV’s image, even after different content is displayed. It takes a lot for that to happen on the latest OLEDs, but models from even a couple of years ago carry a higher risk.

Further Reading

The border is the same for every game in the Nintendo Switch Online catalog, so players who spend a lot of time on one of those TVs playing retro games on the Switch may find themselves anxious about doing damage to their expensive screens. OLED TVs make up anywhere from a third to half of premium TV shipments, depending on the region. That’s not a small number of TVs that are potentially at risk, and the market share is growing every year.

goldeneye, game, nintendo, switch, release

One of Nintendo’s Switch models even has a built-in OLED display, but it hasn’t been on the market long enough to determine if problems will arise. Plus, the borders undermine that model’s main advantage: perfect black levels.

A widescreen mode largely bypasses this problem for GoldenEye 007 on the Switch, but switching between that game and other Nintendo 64 titles just makes the borders in the latter stand out all the more.

So this is one more request, added to a mountain of pleas over almost half a decade: Nintendo, please let us get rid of that awful gray border on Switch Online retro games.

GoldenEye On Switch Could Be Happening In 2022

  • November 2, 2021
  • Seb Santabarbara

The news is out; GoldenEye on Switch could be a reality as soon as 2022!

How have we come to this fantastic conclusion?

Did news come via a coded message sent in a covert canister sent by Bond himself? Did Trevelyan spill the beans after getting drunk one evening?

No, but that would have been awesome, right.

As always, we’ve been scouring the internet, and this time we’ve taken a (virtual) trip to Germany to source this top secret information.

Be careful though; if you read this article, we will have to kill you.

(N.B Brandon’s told me that I have to clarify that we won’t have to kill you… just partially maim).

Everything We Know About GoldenEye On Switch

Can you imagine how amazing it will be to play a classic Bond game on the switch, either on the TV or through the fancy new OLED screen?

Well GoldenEye on Switch could be coming sooner than you thought thanks to the news that we found after infiltrating the Eurogamer Germany report.

It seems that Rare’s classic shooter is no longer banned in Germany. For a long time, GoldenEye was listed on a long list of games and media that couldn’t be sold to minors…

… that’s small children, not people with lamps on their heads and pickaxes…

What Does This Mean For The Nintendo Switch?

The Nintendo Switch is a family-friendly console, much more than the PS5 and the Xbox Series X. With that in mind, it’s obvious that kids are going to be able to get their hands on all different types of games, age rating or otherwise.

The strange thing about this move is that the ban would have expired next year anyway. It’s purposefully been removed from the list a year early… which can only mean that there’s big things in store for Bond and the gang in the imminent future.

Does this mean that Goldeneye on Switch could be coming as part of the N64 Sega Switch Online subscription?

Man, playing the original Facility level with the new N64 Switch controller would be fantastic!

GoldenEye On Switch Copyright Issues

One of the main problems that has surrounded GoldenEye in recent years is that Rare, the creators of countless Nintendo games, are now owned by Microsoft.

They actually developed an HD version of the original N64 game (one of the best N64 games if we’re giving it it’s proper title), but arguments over the copyright of the game meant that it got shelved and never finished.

Still, an N64 subscription wouldn’t be complete without this N64 classic, so we’re guessing someone’s finally found a way to break the deadlock.

Two other games on the banned list in Germany, the U.K port of BloodRayne and the American version of BloodRayne 2, are also receiving remakes for the Switch… so surely this is a good sign.

What Can We Expect From Goldeneye On Switch?

It’s safe to say that we can expect a HD version of the original game, not a remake like the GoldenEye title that dropped on the Wii back in 2010.

We’re talking Bond, Natalya, Xenia, and al the regulars in their original glory, just souped up like Super Mario 64.

None of the new features, either. I want case files, the original plot of the movie, and all the same gadgets that Bond used in the N64 game.

And of course, an online multiplayer!

Whether local or online, multiplayer GoldenEye on Switch would take things to a-whole-nother-level. Imagine having a Fortnite style deathmatch with tonnes of Bonds all searching for one Golden Gun…

… I’m getting a little bit emotional just thinking about it.

Keep checking back for more information as and when we get it, including whether this news could mean another title included on the N64 Mini

Prepare Your Basement: GoldenEye Is Coming To Nintendo Switch Xbox

James Bond is back! After much speculation, video game giants Nintendo and Microsoft announced that the legendary GoldenEye 007 will be returning in all of its original glory. Bond, Alec Trevelyan, and the rest of the crew are downloadable for both Xbox consoles and the Nintendo Switch on Friday, January 27th.

GoldenEye occupies a fond nook within the hearts of those who grew up playing Nintendo 64. It was a faithful recreation of Pierce Brosnan’s very first Bond film, but in a first-person shooter style that had, up until then, been largely the domain of PC players. It was immersive, imaginative, and fun to play. And it had a robust multiplayer mode that only required owning a Nintendo 64 controller, provided that you already had a friend with the console and the game. No internet was required, either. That’s right, no internet. And depending on which weapon or character you were using: no mercy.

This time around, booting up GoldenEye and spamming remote mines until all of your friends hate you is a little more complicated than just going over to Mark’s house. What’s a Switch Online? What’s an Expansion Pack? Can you still cheat by playing as Oddjob like the thorn-hearted creature that you are? Here’s what you should know about playing the classic GoldenEye on Nintendo Switch and Xbox.

GoldenEye on Xbox is much easier to get but lacks the multiplayer mode

Wait, why are we focused on Switch? Why not tell me how to get the game on Xbox? Pay attention 007: Because downloading a game through Xbox’s GamePass feature is a lot more straightforward. But, you shouldn’t want GoldenEye on Xbox, for one crucial reason. The Xbox version of GoldenEye does not repeat, does not, let you play online multiplayer. While, no, the original title didn’t have online multiplayer, we’re guessing it would be easier at this point in your life for you and your buddies to be able to boot up and play from the comfort of your own homes. This takes away the in-person antics that made us spend a many greasy-handed hours with the game. But, hey, things change. So why is there no online multiplayer on the Xbox? The reasons for this are only known to this, the Darkest of Timelines. (To be clear, you can make in-person multiplayer happen with Xbox.)

Do I Need a Nintendo Switch Console To Play GoldenEye?

Actually, no! You can still bring a Switch controller (JoyCon or Pro Controller) over to Mark’s house and play multiplayer in the same living room that, aside from a flat-screen TV, somehow has not changed since 1997. Clean up the place, will you, Mark?

Do I Want a Nintendo Switch Console To Play GoldenEye?

Yeah. Listen, it’s the best console Nintendo has put out in decades. You’re gonna get your mileage out of it. GoldenEye is for reliving the good days. But most importantly, having your own Switch means you can play GoldenEye multiplayer with your friends from the comfort of your couch as long as you all have each other’s friend codes (i.e. the product identification number your Switch console essentially comes with).

What’s a Nintendo Friend Code?

It’s like friending someone on social media except Nintendo doesn’t let you just find your Switch-owning friends via their username. It requires that you manually punch in a 14-digit code that your friend has to text to you. Is it weird? Yep. It really is. Thankfully, you only have to do this once.

Which Nintendo Switch Do I Buy?

GoldenEye will play on any of them. The Switch Lite is handheld-only, which we honestly would not recommend because, man, those remote mines are small and that screen makes them even smaller. The regular Switch can be played as both a handheld or docked and broadcasting through your television, and is perfectly fine. If you think you’re going to be using your Switch a lot, you may want to spend the extra 50 and go for the OLED version. The screen on that is bigger and sharper, and the hardware itself is a little hardier than the regular version.

I Have A Switch But I Don’t Know How To Get GoldenEye

GoldenEye comes as part of an overall online access subscription program called Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. Turn your Switch on and on the home screen select the red circle on the bottom left. Under “Membership Options Support” you can find information on the options and cost of the basic Switch Online plan and the Switch Online Expansion Pack plan.

Do I Have To Get “Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack” To Play Goldeneye?

Yes, and I’m sorry because it is 50 (!!) a year. GoldenEye is only available to players who have purchased the Expansion Pack. While a basic Switch Online yearly subscription gets you online play and free NES and SNES games, the Expansion Pack gives you all of that plus free Nintendo 64, Sega Genesis games, and some free DLC from three Nintendo titles. So you can also play old-school classics like Sonic and Donkey Kong Country 64 with the expansion.

Anyone you want to play GoldenEye with online/remotely must also have the Switch Online Expansion Pack. You may have to loan Mark some money.

What is the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack Pricing?

There’s also a “family membership” option that is 80 (. ) but which lets a total of eight Switch owners use the Expansion Pack, so technically you can split the cost amongst your friends. You know, the friends you will soon be sniping and exploding.

I Purchased Switch Online Expansion Pack. So How Do I Play GoldenEye?

It’s easy from there. Once the subscription service has been downloaded onto your Switch, the games queue on your home screen will update with a bunch of new red squares. One of these will have a Nintendo 64 controller on it. Select that and you’ll be taken to a menu with all of the N64 games you are now able to play, including GoldenEye.

From there it’s just a matter of remembering how the menus worked in the original game.

Wait, the N64 Buttons Are Different Than the Switch Buttons

They are. The GoldenEye aiming and walking controls are the same but, you don’t know what buttons to press on the switch controllers.

The right control stick on your right-hand JoyCon or Pro Controller takes the place of the C buttons you used on the Nintendo 64 controller. We haven’t had a chance to play the game this way as of yet, but if it’s too unwieldy, you have a couple of options. Really, only one good option and one bad option.

Bad Option: Buy one of those Nintendo 64 controllers made especially for the Switch. Here’s why this is a bad option: They’ve been out of stock for a while now, though, and secondhand controllers often go for three times (. ) the retail price.

Good Option: You can re-map the buttons on your Switch controllers to a more modern first-person shooter configuration, or something you’re more comfortable with by:

  • Go to the Switch’s home screen.
  • Then System Settings. (That circle on the bottom row that looks like a hollow sun.)
  • Down to Controllers and Sensors.
  • Select Change Button Mapping.
  • Select the controller you want to re-map and hit Change.
  • Re-map!
  • Don’t forget to save this button configuration as a “Preset” so you can shut it on and off when you like.

Is GoldenEye screen peeking over?

Not at all! If you play with your friends in person, it will feel like the old days at Mark’s house (Don’t forget the Doritos!) But, if you’re only doing it online, they can’t punch you in the shoulder. If you really want a vintage N64 version of GoldenEye, you can find one out there. Just be prepared to have more money than James Bond to get it.
