GoldenEye was pretty much the Nintendo N64 game to have. It certainly took up hours of our teenage years. Now the long-dormant rumour of a GoldenEye remake has flashed back into life like the barrel of a Walther PPK. Images uncovered from a leaked Activision survey show artwork for GoldenEye headed to the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS and it looks like there’ll be a Golden Gun controller to go with it…
Rumours surfaced last year after a loose-lipped animator claimed he’d been working on GoldenEye 2010. Now it seems the claims on his CV weren’t just geeky wishful thinking. The leak from Activision says a new version of GoldenEye is being “developed from the ground up” for the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS.
While the new GoldenEye will apparently featured classic levels including ones set in St Petersburg and the Caribbean, the developers are modernising the game, ditching Piers Brosnan for Daniel Craig.
Though Bond’s face looks set to change, GoldenEye on the Wii will reportedly keep the same four-player split-screen that made the original so addictive and add support for 8-player online matches.
The GoldenEye remake is said to feature the same range of weapons will on the cards too and the leaked survey also shows renders of a golden gun Classic controller and an entirely golden Wii remote shell.
Since rumours of a GoldenEye remake have been running around since late last year, we’ve got our fingers-crossed and our tuxedos ready for a launch at this year’s E3 which kicks off on June 15.
Let us know: are you excited about the idea of a GoldenEye remake? Or would you rather see an all new Bond game for the Wii? And more importantly: will Daniel Craig make a better virtual Bond than Piers Brosnan?
