GoldenEye 007 Coming To Xbox Game Pass and Nintendo Switch Online This Week

N64 classic GoldenEye 007 will arrive on Nintendo Switch Online’s Expansion Pass and Xbox Game Pass on January 27.

Announced via Nintendo’s YouTube channel and the Xbox Wire, the long-anticipated release date finally confirms when players can jump back into the role of James Bond both in single-player and its famous multiplayer.

A series of leaks and rumors were confirmed by the two companies in September last year, though GoldenEye 007 previously only had a “coming soon” release window.

Those looking to play the game on Switch will need both Nintendo Switch Online and its Expansion Pass (that adds the N64 digital library), while Xbox users will be able to download it for no additional cost via Xbox Game Pass.

The two versions of the game aren’t similar, however, as only the Switch version will include online multiplayer – the first time this feature has been officially available for the 26-year-old game. The Xbox version will be a remastered edition that contains new control options, achievements, 16:9 resolution, and up to 4K Ultra HD resolution.

GoldenEye 007 had been all but confirmed on Xbox for a long time as fan website True Achievements and even Xbox’s own website listed the game’s achievements, but fans will be able to get their hands on it this week.
