The popular N64 game is reportedly finally getting a re-release this month

One of the best and most popular N64 games is said to be re-released very soon. What is very soon? Well, by the end of the month. The N64 wasn’t the best-selling console, but many games from its library are widely remembered as some of the best games of that generation. While the PS1 way surpassed the N64 during the fifth console generation, you could argue that the former has more games that are remembered more fondly in modern times. And there aren’t many so fondly remembered from this era of Nintendo gaming Golden Eye 007.

To that end, an Xbox leaker that passes “eXtas1son Twitter claims the game will be released in “late January”, or at least that’s the implication of a new tweet from the leaker. The tweet in question isn’t final in this proclamation as it’s very vague, but it’s unclear which other implication there may be.

There’s been no mention of this being related to the Xbox event set to take place on January 25, but you’d assume the two are related as Xbox is marketing the re-release with Rare, one of its developers, with the collaboration from Nintendo, who published the original N64 game.

As you may know, this re-release was announced way back in September, but with no date. And this hasn’t changed, but maybe it will be a stealth release this month. If so, Xbox Game Pass and Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will be very happy as the game launches on day one through both subscription services. It will also be regularly available for purchase on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch.

“Players will accompany James Bond on a global espionage mission to prevent the destructive power of the GoldenEye satellite from being unleashed upon the world,” reads an official blurb about the re-release. “The classic campaign mode, transforming difficulty settings and devastating cheats will all return – as will the iconic split-screen local multiplayer mode, where up to four players can couch themselves in a battle of wits and skill. The original experience has been updated with improved control options (including support for two analog sticks), native 16:9 resolution up to 4K Ultra HD (where supported), a consistent refresh rate, and a full range of performance to unlock.
