So we now know that GoldenEye will be seeing a release for the Nintendo Switch (as part of the NSO service), as well as Xbox (which is offered free to those who own Rare Replay, or can be purchased by itsef). There is still more to learn, especially dates, but here is some info...

The Switch version will be emulated, and support online multiplayer. Thankfully there is the Switch N64 controller you can use, so the controls should be decent. If you can track one down for a good price.

Xbox obviously couldn't use the same emulation, as that would be Nintendo property, so they had to "rebuild" the game. They are claiming this will offer a smoother frame rate and 4K visuals. But... no online MP? Big loss for them.


Do note that the XBLA remaster leak is not part of this deal. Could maybe some day we see that one finished, or another made? At least seeing this cooperation, it is a possibility. See you in another 25 years. Wink

Fun facts: The trailer teased on Twitter used my HD restores for the music.
To avoid licensing issues Robin Beanland had redone the whole OST, but I believe licensing issues were since cleared up, so my expectation (not confirmed, just what I believe) is that they will be using the original music.

I've heard that the Switch multiplayer is with friends or local only. I just bought a switch, but I'm not sure I want to spend the extra money for GE if there's no matchmaking...

So, it's definitely part of the NSO expansion pass? Because the alternative is it somehow being a separate product using the same technology. I haven't seen anyone complain about the expansion pass yet, so that's why it makes me wonder if people don't know about the pass or if the game's actually separate.

It's part of the paid Nintendo Switch Online Service, specifically the "Expansion Pack" version where you get access to N64 Games for double the price.
Monthly/Yearly Subscription service, the included Retro Games are not offered individually so you won't have to worry about paying extra to play GoldenEye online...at the cost of never actually owning it. Retro Games can be played offline but I'm pretty sure you'll lose access if you stop paying for the service so I don't recommend getting it just to play GoldenEye on Switch.

Was really hoping for the XBLA version or possibly a new Remake since XBLA is now older than the Original was at the time of XBLA's development. While disappointing, still great that we're getting a rerelease in general as it opens the door to possibly more 007 games getting rereleased or maybe something more with GoldenEye in general...although considering that the Xbox version isn't getting online maybe the negations were too complicated and this is the best we'll get.
