Goldeneye Being Re-released for Xbox and Nintendo Switch Online
« on: September 13, 2022, 11:47:33 PM »
That's right! Goldeneye is finally being re-released. 2 versions will be available. The Xbox version is a remastered version with updated controls, improved graphics and frame rate. The Nintendo Switch version will be the original N64 version but with online multiplayer added.

The Xbox version does not have online multiplayer for some reason.  :(

Update - 09/13/2022, 9am: The Xbox remaster of GoldenEye 007 will not include online multiplayer, which will instead be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version of the game.

As revealed by 007.com, the two versions of GoldenEye, despite being announced at the same time, will not include the same features. The Nintendo version appears to be staying relatively similar to the original, but with the addition of online multiplayer, and will be added as a standard N64 game to the Switch Online library.

The Xbox version, on the other hand, will be a remastered version of the 1997 original with updated controls (meaning modern, dual analogue stick support) and improved graphics and frame rate.

Update - 09/13/2022, 8am: Rare has confirmed that GoldenEye 007 is also coming to Xbox alongside Nintendo Switch following months of rumours.

Confirmed in a tweet (below), the Xbox game isn't confirmed to be the same version as that on Nintendo Switch but will feature achievements, 4K resolution, and a smoother framerate.

GoldenEye 007 has been all but confirmed on Xbox for a long time as fan website True Achievements and even Xbox's own website listed the game's achievements.

Original Story: Nintendo has announced that its beloved GoldenEye 007 for Nintendo 64 is coming to Nintendo Switch Online "soon" with official online functionality for the first time ever.

Announced during September's Nintendo Direct, Nintendo revealed a ton of new titles coming to its online subscription package including Pokémon Stadium and Mario Party, before confirming that GoldenEye would also be arriving.

It's unclear exactly when GoldenEye will be released, however, as the handful of new Nintendo 64 games confirmed for the platform are arriving as late as 2023.

Nintendo has been slowly but surely adding titles to its Nintendo Switch Online service for the last few months, releasing various N64 games roughly once a month or so. Its remaining games confirmed for 2022 during the Direct are Pilotwings 64, Mario Party, and Mario Party 2.

As for 2023, Mario Party 3, Pokémon Stadium, Pokémon Stadium 2, 1080° Snowboarding, and Excitebike 64 were all announced.

Call me crazy, but I don't see Goldeneye aging well.

I think they missed an opportunity not making the Xbox version online. Unless there is going to be some sort of update later. Really it would be ideal for an online game in this present gaming generation. Why go to the trouble of such an update and not include the multiplayer online?

It's a novelty at this point. Which is why I think it's a good thing they're not selling it individually.

There's a lot of speculation as to why. One of the more plausible reasons is that Nintendo's version gets online play automatically through their Online system. It's not actually programmed in the game. It's somewhat of a hack that Nintendo does for their other retro multiplayer games and this just came along for the ride.

Is there anything stopping Rare/Microsoft from programming in online? I don't think so. But it's also possible since it's a Nintendo 64 title, MS and Nintendo worked out some deal where both versions are different from each other. The Switch version is just an emulated version whereas the Xbox is actually remastered.

I'm excited for this.  It will be a novelty... but this should be fun!  I can't wait to try out the online multiplayer  ;D
