The Iconic Bond game GoldenEye 007 from the late ’90s is set to be released for both Xbox Game Pass and Nintendo Switch Online.  As first announced at the Nintendo Direct broadcast the Nintendo 64 classic is coming soon to the console’s Nintendo 64 – Nintendo Switch Online service. Microsoft also confirmed a remastered 4K version would be coming to Xbox Game Pass with one catch.

The Xbox Game Pass version will not have multiplayer capabilities.  Online play is exclusive to the Switch version allowing 007 from across the world to take part in the popular 4-player multiplayer mode together.

The popular game is based on a 1995 film where players control Bond through a series of levels that follow the GoldenEye film story.  In multiplayer mode up to four players can compete in several scenarios based on elements from You Only Live TwiceThe Living DaylightsThe Man With the Golden Gun, and Licence to Kill.

GoldenEye 007 ranks as the third best-selling Nintendo 64 game of all time and was one of the most influential games in paving the way for modern-day first-person shooters such as Halo and Call of Duty.
