Die-hard fans of the vintage GoldenEye 007 game for the Nintendo 64 were hyped earlier this week with refresh gameplay footage.
The two-hour-long video of the remastered version for Xbox Live Arcade is finely depicted with visual upgrades; the game maintains the higher stakes as it was 24 years ago. More info has also leaked, subjecting why the 2008 remake never took off. As GoldenEye composer Grant Kirkhope puts it, there were just too many “stakeholders,” and that “Microsoft, Nintendo and EON [owners of the Bond license] could never on terms.” Meaning, with all the studios, actors, licenses, and intellectual property involved in the game, it would be financially foolish to go ahead with the game.
The brighter side is that the Internet has once again created a buzz on the trending discussion, and someone has leaked a near-final version of the ROM. This ROM consists of full single-player mode and multiplayer modes. The fans eagerly waiting can find ROM making rounds around the internet to be played via PC emulators like Xenia Xbox 360.
