Nintendo has announced that GoldenEye 007 is finally coming back. During its September 2022 Nintendo Direct, the company confirmed that Rare's seminal N64 first-person shooter — which has never been officially released on any other console — is "coming soon".
The Direct announcement was light on specifics, with no release date given, but online play has been confirmed. The announcement came at the end of a segment detailing other N64 titles coming to the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack, and the screenshot below shows an icon in the top left suggesting that this will form a part of that service — and the quickly released trailer following the announcement, above, confirms it.
Rumours that the game was close to re-release have been doing the rounds for many months now. Achievements were seen on the Xbox website some time ago, with the game's return being one of the industry's worst-kept secrets for some time.
