Goldeneye 007, the classic first-person shooter, is coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox consoles. The port of the original game will include online multiplayer, and arrive as part of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack and Xbox Game Pass subscription services. The announcement was made Tuesday during a Nintendo Direct streaming presentation and on Twitter.
According to a news release by Rare, its iconic 1997 FPS will now include achievements, 4K resolutions, and a smoother frame rate. It will also include online multiplayer.
For Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, today’s announcement also includes news that the service will include additional Nintendo 64 hits via the Expansion Pack. Nintendo is soon adding Pilotwings 64; Mario Party, Mario Party 2, and Mario Party 3; Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium 2; and 1080 Snowboarding; and Excitebike 64 to the service. Access to the games will require ownership of a Nintendo Switch, a subscription to the Nintendo Switch Online service, and the Expansion Pack add-on for that service.
