‘Only Switch version GoldenEye 007 has online multiplayer’

It seems that only the Nintendo Switch version of GoldenEye 007 supports online multiplayer.

That can be read on the official website. Exclusive to the new 1997 Switch version of the game is online gameplay, allowing 007 fans around the world to take part in the popular four-player mode.

During the Nintendo Direct this afternoon, it was announced that GoldenEye 007 will be coming to Nintendo Switch Online and Xbox Game Pass at an as-yet-unknown date. Where the announcement of the Direct indeed mentioned online multiplayer, the announcement of Xbox only mentions local multiplayer.

The description on the James Bond website seems to suggest that the Switch version of the game will remain as faithful as possible to the original, while the Xbox Game Pass version will get a 4k resolution.

There have been rumors for years about a possible re-release of the Nintendo 64 game GoldenEye 007. Due to different licensees, the game was never re-released on another platform. Rare, which is now part of Microsoft, developed the game, but Nintendo and MGM also own the rights. Previously, Microsoft and Rare would have tried to bring the game to Xbox, but Nintendo would have stopped that. Earlier this year, Xbox achievements of the game leaked out.

GoldenEye 007 appeared on the Nintendo 64 in 1997 and is based on the James Bond film GoldenEye. The game was known for realistic shooting action for the time. In addition to a campaign, the game also featured a four-player local multiplayer mode, which was in great demand.
