There were some big announcements during today’s Nintendo Direct event, but one in particular could make Nintendo Switch Online a bigger hit than before.
As part of the announcement, Nintendo revealed a bunch of Nintendo 64 games coming to the service. These include Mario Party 1, 2, and 3, along with Excitebike 64, the Pokémon Stadium games and 1080 Snowboarding.
But the big one of the group? Goldeneye 007.
That’s right, Rare’s classic first-person shooter that put the Nintendo 64 on the map in competitive multiplayer will return this year to the Switch Online service, complete with online play. Though only a snippet of the game was shown, it looks to have all its original components intact.
Not only that, Xbox owners will get it as well, and it will be a day one release on Xbox Game Pass! It looks like online multiplayer will be exclusive to the Switch, but the Xbox version will have local player split-screen, along with 4K resolution and a smoother frame rate. Nice.
We’ll see how it fares, but check out the announcement trailer below! Consider us shaken and stirred.
