GoldenEye 007 for Nintendo Switch Online will include online multiplayer for the first time ever, and was worked on by Rare Ltd., the game’s original developer.
It will release simultaneously on Xbox Game Pass, where it will feature achievements, 4K support, and a “smoother framerate.”

Although 1080° Snowboarding and Excitebike 64 have appeared on Nintendo’s Virtual Console offerings in the past, the Nintendo Switch Online launches of Pilotwings 64, Mario Party, Mario Party 3, Pokémon Stadium, Pokémon Stadium 2, and GoldenEye 007 are the first time these titles have seen re-releases on Nintendo platforms.
