N64 GoldenEye 007 2023 Remaster Release Date

Both Nintendo & Microsoft have separately announced the N64 GoldenEye 007 2023 Remaster release date on Switch (for NSO + Expansion Pack subscribers), Xbox One & Xbox Series X (for Game Pass subscribers) is today! The global launch date is January 27, 2023, just two days from now. In fact the roll-out begins late on January 26 in some territories, becoming available to players all over the world by January 27. The confusion may be because it’s coming out at midnight UK time, where developer Rare is based.

Looking at the below features list, the console-exclusive features seem to be split between the two versions by James Bond rights-holder MGM in an attempt to make both versions unique… Except everyone wishes we could all just play online multiplayer together cross-console. Especially because the Switch can’t even do 4K graphics and doesn’t have the Xbox’s Achievements system, so Switch players are used to not having that. But online multiplayer everyone should have.

Switch Features:

  • New online multiplayer!
  • Native 16:9 widescreen resolution up to HD (where supported)
  • A smoother framerate (not 60FPS like on Xbox)
  • 4-Player split-screen
  • Alternative control options

  • New achievements!
GoldenEye 007 – Xbox Game Pass Date Reveal Trailer

The version of GoldenEye 007 set to appear on Xbox Game Pass is the classic game that made waves in 1997, based on the movie that introduced audiences to a thrilling new era of James Bond. It comes packed with objective-based stealth shooter gameplay and, of course, a legendary local multiplayer mode for split-screen showdowns with friends. It also offers a few key additions for a modern audience, including alternative control options, achievements to unlock and native 16:9 resolution up to 4K Ultra HD (where supported).

GoldenEye 007 will be available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S as part of Xbox Game Pass. Additionally, players who own a digital copy of Rare Replay, the 30-game compilation of Rare games made to celebrate the studio’s 30th anniversary, will be able to download and enjoy the game free of charge.

Now I need you to die Mr. Bond… will you yield? *shootout ensues*

Are you excited to relive a remastered James Bond: GoldenEye 007 game again in 2023?
