GoldenEye 007 with online multiplayer will be coming to Nintendo Switch – Effinate Games


Nintendo has truly delivered on its promise to “enhance and expand” the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pass since its launch. GoldenEye 007 has been on our list of Nintendo 64 games we want to see added to the service, and now that wish has been granted.

Announced during the latest Nintendo Direct, GoldenEye 007 is “coming soon” to the Switch Online N64 library. There’s no more specific release date than that, though most new additions to the service have been added fairly quickly after being announced. Not only will the game be made available to Expansion Pass subscribers, but as promised in the trailer and on Twitter, it will also include online multiplayer. This will be the first time the classic retro shooter will support online functionality – something fans have been waiting for. Now the question is whether you will be able to ban Oddjob from online selection.

GoldenEye 007 has been in the headlines for a while now. Already at the start of the year, a series of leaked performances indicated that a remaster for Xbox and potentially PC was in the works, but we have yet to get official confirmation of that – although the trademark was renewed a few months later. It’s worth pointing out that the revamp could also have been done as a precursor to this news about GoldenEye on Nintendo Switch Online, although reports of a remaster are still something to consider. It’s Microsoft’s to announce one day, but Nintendo has beat it to some degree with this online-enabled version of the original game.

A GoldenEye remaster isn’t the only 007 game on James Bond fans’ minds either. Hitman 3 developer IO Interactive is working on its own 007 title with an original story, and it may even be expanded into a full trilogy. However, it appears to be set for a 2025 release at the earliest.
