Further, the company officials claim they are also providing boosted framerate, native 16:9 4k, and much better graphics on Xbox. In addition to online play, the Nintendo Switch version will offer local split-screen multiplayer for up to four players.
The company officials said the fans have been asking for a remaster of GoldenEye 007 for a long time, so Rare’s announcement has undoubtedly been met with excitement.
According to company officials, Nintendo Switch Online multiplayer is a system-level feature, wherein any vintage N64 game with local multiplayer capabilities will operate online via virtualized emulation.
The company officials said those who have purchased the digital version of this massive collection would have the opportunity to download GoldenEye 007 for free as soon as it is made online to the public.
Reportedly, the game would release simultaneously alongside the Switch version of Nintendo, but the team at Rare has not yet confirmed its release date.
The cheat modes and the classic campaign mode will be made available alongside dual analog sticks and a native 16:9 aspect ratio at up to 4k resolution, said the spokesperson.
If sources are to be believed, Nintendo is also adding Mario Party, Pilotwings 64, 1080° Snowboarding, Excitebike 64, and Pokémon Stadium to Nintendo Switch Online.
