The stars may be aligning for an official return of the greatest James Bond game of all time
By MI6 Staff
The 1997 Nintendo 64 classic James Bond game 'GoldenEye 007' could finally be seeing an official release on a modern-day platform.
Interest in the possible re-release of the title picked up momentum again last year when Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade remake, which was canceled at the last minute in 2007, was leaked online.
Also late last year, one of Nintendo's European partners requested the game's ban in Germany be reviewed. 'GoldenEye 007' has long been on a list of games in Germany considered as 'Media Harmful to Young Persons.' The review was won and the game was removed from the ban list, opening it up again for potential sales.
It now appears that Xbox is preparing a release of the original title as graphics, achievements, and artwork have been discovered on official Xbox servers. This is the original Nintendo 64 game ported to Xbox, rather than the XBLA HD remake.
